FreeFest: LCD Soundsystem delivers the grandest of finales
By Chris Richards
This is exactly how it was supposed to end.
A great-big band on a great-big stage sweating over great-big, exquisitely-crafted songs -- the kind that make tens of thousands of exhausted fans lunge out of their seats after hours and hours (and hours!) of live music and throw their filthy hands toward the moon. (Also: The kind that make you laugh when an errant glowstick gets chucked at your head.)
Frontman James Murphy and the six supporting members of LCD Soundsystem delivered the grandest of finales with their headlining Pavilion Stage set at Virgin Mobile FreeFest, Saturday. For 90 exhilarating minutes, the band melded rock bombast with disco's invincible pulse -- a momentous display that eclipsed the energy of the day's other performances combined.
Give or take the airborne glowsticks.
