Is it really such a hassle to be in a perennially hip and critically acclaimed rock band? Apparently so. Just last week The White Stripes announced that they are calling it quits. Now LCD Soundsystem have posted a message on their official website declaring their imminent retirement from the live circuit.

“good people of earth,” begins the message, “lcd soundsystem are playing madison square garden on april 2nd, and it will be our last show ever. we are retiring from the game. gettin’ out. movin’ on. but for just one more night, we will be playing with friends and family for nearly 3 hours–playing stuff we’ve never played before and going out with a bang. and we’d like you to be there. if you would, we’d love it if people all came in white. or black. or black and white. and come ready to have fun, please. and come early, as the festivities will be opened by our favorites, liquid liquid. yes: liquid liquid. if it’s a funeral, let’s have the best funeral ever!!!”

You can check out the LCD website for ticket info.

Will you be attending this funeral party? Or do you have a favorite memory of seeing James Murphy and crew? Let us know!
