You have no choice to admire the chutzpah of someone who’d hop on Stubhub and offer $1,500-a-shot tickets for a show that isn’t even technically on sale yet. And yet here we are. Whether this is serious or performance art or what we couldn’t rightly say, but let us politely suggest that you wait until tix for LCD Soundsystem’s April 2 farewell show at Madison Square Garden are actually on sale, Friday at 11 a.m., before you go selling whatever amount of plasma it would require to finance this. (The ticket-resale market is already robust, but usually within more logical bounds: Tickets for this morning’s Pitchfork presale, which lasted all of like 60 seconds apparently, topped out at a far more manageable $61.50.) Oh, and to whoever’s offering this fantastic deal: James Murphy wants to kick your ass.
Well, in any event, whatever personage is behind LCD’s official Twitter is very upset.
This seems a good a time as any to mention that Murphy was dabbling in Ultimate Fighting a while back. Just in case it comes to that.
