Watch LCD Soundsystem's farewell show in Reading this Friday
This Friday sees Reading's SUB89 transform in New York's Madison Square Garden for one night only as Monkeysuit and Pulse Films team up to present a one off screening of LCD Soundsystem's historic farewell show.
Back in April 2011 James Murphy and co took to the stage in New York for the final time as LCD Soundsystem, seeing the band bow out at the height of their popularity with one of the biggest parties of the decade their career spanned. On Friday 11th January you can relive the full three and a half hour show in Reading's SUB89 where organisers are utilising the venues big screen, full PA and lights with an all standing audience to recreate the atmosphere from that night.
Following the screening there will be an after party hosted by Cube DJ's where ticket holders can enjoy a night of music taken from the ten years LCD Soundsystem made music. Tickets are priced just £6 in advance and available here.
