NO-WAVE X THRESHOLD FESTIVAL
DANCE YRSELF CLEAN -- A Tribute Night to LCD Soundsystem
// The Official Threshold Festival After Party //
// Camp and Furnace -- Friday 28th March //
// £3 entry // £2 with Threshold Wristband //
This year, Threshold have given us the opportunity to host their Official Friday After Party, and so our chosen theme for the night is LCD Soundsystem.
Held in Camp & Furnace, No-Wave DJs will play music by the band, as well as artists they were influenced by, and those they have inspired, opening us up to play genres from Electronic to Punk, Hip-Hop to Indie etc.
James Murphy has been in the music industry since 1988 but it wasn't until 2002 when he started LCD Soundsystem and brought out the intense 'Losing My Edge'.
By 2005 LCD had released their self-titled album and Murphy was becoming an (indie) household name thanks to the success of 'Daft Punk is Playing at My House".
2007 saw the release of 'Sound of Silver' (including tracks like the beautiful "New York, I Love You but You're Bringing Me Down" and fan favourite "All My Friends") and after their release "This is Happening" (which gave birth to the wonderful Spike Jonze directed video for "Drunk Girls"), he decided it was time to break up the band. This was coupled with a movie "Shut Up and Play the Hits" filmed at Madison Square Garden. We will be projecting the movie, and various music videos throughout the night.
Since then Murphy is now becoming one of the most sought after producers, having already worked on albums for Yeah Yeah Yeah's and Arcade Fire - we all remember getting excited seeing his name attached to a Gorillaz/Andre 3000 track in 2012.
