Were You On The List ?: LCD Soundsystem in Philly

Sometimes it’s good to be on “The List“. Last night’s LCD Soundsystem show at The TLA(Fillmore) in Philadelphia was a freebie sponsored by myspace’s “The List“. All of the tickets were given away free via a myspace contest. Local radio station Y-Rock also gave some away. The free tickets insured the place was packed as Myspace was filming the entire concert to be placed on the web later. Considering it was a myspace giveaway the crowd was a good mix of all ages not overly skewed towards myspace’s younger demographic. Doors opened at 8:00 but LCD didn’t hit the stage until approximately 9:15 and they played until about 10:30. Just over an hour, but the energy level was insane through the whole thing. As electronic as they may sound there’s no drum machines, they play all of it with a full band and let me tell you they know how to rock. I’d say the highlights were the faster more rocking version Daft Punk Is Playing At My House, All My Friends, which was absolutely transcendent live far superior to the album version,and Yeah which had the entire crowd going nuts and singing along.
The Joy Division cover in the encore was also very cool to get All in all a great show, definitely worth catching if they come your way. Except for a handful of US shows most of their upcoming tour dates are in Europe and beyond.
