Thank you, LCD Soundsystem. Thank you, for not being Panda Bear. Thank you, for bringing your wits, your bad-a** beats, and your explosive melodies to a festival short on ace performances. Thank you, for giving everyone in the crowd a memorable moment with which to frame their 2010 festival experience. That one two punch of “Daft Punk is Playing at My House” and “All My Friends” was exactly what the crowd needed. Did you see them? Did you see the smiles. Did you see all that shaking? Did you see those dance trains snaking in and out of the crowd? I hope you could see all that happiness from behind the stage lights.
Thank you, LCD Soundsystem, for being awesome when we needed awesome the most.
