LCD Soundsystem coming to Hard Rock Live in Orlando
We were holding out hope that this indie-dance supertour might come to Tampa Bay, but no dice (at least not yet). Still, you can rejoice in the fact that it's at least coming to Florida.
According to their website, LCD Soundsystem is coming to Orlando's Hard Rock Live on Oct. 5, in yet another officially sanctioned Hip October Concert. Tickets are $32-$37, and they go onsale Friday. Click here.
No doubt many of you are thinking: "Woot! Are LCD Soundsystem's DFA labelmates, Hot Chip, opening this show?" According to this, no, they're not. The openers on this date will be Sleigh Bells, a super-hip buzz band in their own right. They're not as danceable as Hot Chip, but they're louder than pretty much any band in the world, aside from perhaps Sun O))).
Whatever: When James Murphy and company play North American Scum, All My Friends or Daft Punk Is Playing At My House, all of Orlando will shut down and dance. Believe it.
