365 Project - Day 92 - "LCD Soundsystem"



April 02, 2011 - "LCD Soundsystem"

Tonight one of my all-time favorite bands - LCD Soundsystem - performed their very last show... ever.

And I was there!

I was there... at Madison Square Garden.

I was there... in the sold-out crowd (one of the quickest concert sell-outs, ever).

I was there... in Section 34... Row D... Seat 2 - with my wife beside me, in Seat 1.

I was there... for the nearly 4-hour-long set - which started at 9PM and ended just shy of 1AM.

I was there... for what turned out to be the single-greatest concert experience I have ever had!

I was there... for the happiness... and the sadness, and tears.

I was there... to say "Thank You!" and "Goodbye".
