LCD Soundsystem announce 5-night residency to open Brooklyn Steel
Next month, concert promoter The Bowery Presents opens its latest venue, Brooklyn Steel — and the concert hall announced Tuesday that revered New York dance-rockers LCD Soundsystem will play five consecutive concerts to kick off the space’s programming. Scheduled to stretch from April 6 to April 11 — the band will take Sunday, April 9, off — LCD Soundsystem’s Brooklyn dates go on sale this Thursday.
The upcoming shows mark LCD Soundsystem’s first New York gigs since headlining the city’s Panorama Festival in July 2016. The Brooklyn Steel gigs come just over a year after the band played two shows at Manhattan’s Webster Hall in March 2016, marking their return to the stage after a five-year hiatus.
The 1,800-person capacity Brooklyn Steel is located in Brooklyn’s East Williamsburg neighborhood and will host bands including The Decemberists, PJ Harvey, Pixies, Two Door Cinema Club, Chairlift, and Real Estate in its opening months.
In addition to their Brooklyn Steel concerts, LCD Soundsystem will headline multiple festivals in 2017 including Atlanta’s Shaky Knees Festival and Chicago’s Pitchfork Music Festival. In January, frontman James Murphy hinted that the band’s fourth album will “be done soon.”
