For the first time in almost five years, the dance punk phenomenon known as LCD Soundsystem reunited to play live last Sunday March 27th.
The band took to the stage in its hometown New York City at Webster Hall, a relatively small venue, and perfect for the first of two warm-up shows ahead of the band’s hugely anticipated Coachella appearances.
For fans it was a rare treat, a small venue and a set list that comprised of the band’s recording career, which featured 15 songs including a rendition of “Losing My Edge” with updated lyrics, Billboard reports. “Pharrell’s in the band now,” James Murphy sang shortly after the song’s “I was the first guy playing Daft Punk for the rock kids” line.
Murphy was thankful to the fans that turned out for the gig, but was his usual irreverent self as the set came toward a close saying: “We’re gonna go over there,” he announced two songs before the encore, “and some of us are gonna go pee and then we’re gonna play two other songs.” The band is back and fans couldn’t be happier.
While no new songs were played in the set, the band has promised new music for the reunion. We have something to look forward to then.
For you LCD diehards, here’s Sunday night’s setlist, maybe you’ll be lucky enough to catch another show, otherwise you can make a playlist of the set:
‘Daft Punk Is Playing At My House’

‘You Wanted A Hit’
