Unless, that is, you count the Madison Square Garden webcast announced earlier today.
On Saturday, April 2, the band's farewell performance will be streamed live by Pitchfork via this link. It's a one-time deal, so mark your calendar now.
Here's a little more about the show, courtesy of the press release the band put out announcing its retirement:
good people of earth:
lcd soundsystem are playing madison square garden on april 2nd, and it will be our last show ever. we are retiring from the game. gettin’ out. movin’ on. but for just one more night, we will be playing with friends and family for nearly 3 hours—playing stuff we’ve never played before and going out with a bang. and we’d like you to be there.
if you would, we’d love it if people all came in white. or black. or black and white. and come ready to have fun, please. and come early, as the festivities will be opened by our favorites, liquid liquid. yes: liquid liquid.
if it’s a funeral, let’s have the best funeral ever!!!
