LCD Soundsystem cover Chic and celebrate Doug Jones’ election victory at majestic New York show

It was the second of a ten-show residency

LCD Soundsystem played the second of ten huge homecoming gigs in New York last night (December 12) – where they covered Chic and celebrated Democrat Doug Jones’ victory over the Republican nominee Roy Moore in Alabama’s senate election.

The ten-show run at Brooklyn Steel began on Monday (December 11) and will continue until the following Saturday (December 23). The group played at the venue previously in April with a five show residency.

The band opened with 2005 single, ‘Yr City’s A Sucker’, following with ‘I Can Change’ and ‘Call The Police’ – from their most recent album ‘American Dream’.


The pile-driving ‘Get Innocuous’, ‘Tribulations’ and ‘Movement’ came soon after – as the band initially refrained from speaking to the other crowd other than asking fans to “take their pictures early”, and vocalist and keyboardist Nancy Whang asking the crowd to “turn their fucking flash off”.

The main set finished with a cover of Chic’s ‘I Want Your Love’, as per the previous night’s set and ‘New York I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down’.

After returning with ‘American Dream’ cut ‘Oh Baby’, Nancy Whang announced that the crowd had more good news to dance to through ‘Dance Yrself Clean’, as she celebrated Democrat Doug Jones victory in Alabama’s senate seat saying, “fuck you Roy Moore”. Traditional set closer ‘All My Friends’ proved a majestic finale soon after.

LCD Soundsystem will return to the UK in 2018, playing London’s new All Points East festival alongside Phoenix, Yeah Yeahs and more.
