Murphy repeatedly demonstrated his gratitude, telling the crowd how "proud" he is to play for them, and then saying, "I'll only get to say this once in my life so...stick around for Jay-Z." Murphy also dedicated a song to Gil Scott-Heron, who was scheduled to be playing a nearby tent. "Not only this song, but many of us in the band are also dedicated to Gil Scott-Heron."
But the real star of the show was LCD Soundsystem themselves; it was arguably the most energetic dance party on the main stage during opening night. The band demonstrated exactly why they're spoken about with such reverence as of late. Traversing the territory between Talking Heads and house music, LCD Soundsystem showcased a few solid nuggets from their upcoming release, 'This is Happening,' including the viral hit 'Drunk Girls.'
Live takes on new tracks 'I Can Change' and 'Pow Pow' were nothing short of showstoppers, even though few had ever heard the songs before. Indeed, it did seem as though most in the crowd were attending their first LCD show. It's doubtful for any of them that it'll be their last.
