DOA: The Pogues And LCD Soundsystem Say Goodbye In nyc
The Pogues are calling it a career at T5 on March 17, LCD Soundsystem at MSG, April 2nd. And I am going to both of them.
But one is real and one is mirrors.
What James Murphy is doing is retiring a brand. Not a career. It’s like McDonalds killing the Big Mac. DFA Records is still around and Murphy will not miss a beat.
On the other hand, Shane is in his 50s and has been partying hard for most of it. This could be a real last hurrah by a great. A mess? Sure, but a great.
