LCD Soundsystem's Pat Mahoney Coming to Bardot Miami on May 16
Pat Mahoney with LCD buddy James Murphy.
As a unit, LCD Soundsystem is no more, and the chances of James Murphy reuniting the bunch are slim. He recently told Spain's Terra Networks that while he respects and appreciates the public outcry for a reunion, it's best for the group members to explore different options.
Former LCD member Al Doyle is touring with Hot Chip. Nancy Whang's working on new music while touring Europe. And Tyler Pope's in Berlin, working as a DJ.
But Pat Mahoney, he's coming to Miami.
On May 16, the former LCD Soundsystem drummer will take over the carpet at Bardot, bringing funky DFA beats backs to the Big Mango like he did a few years back.
In 2011, Mahoney came to Miami with Murphy for a night of disco dancing at Grand Central. But lately, it's Bardot that has become DFA's unofficial Miami home base.
The Midtown venue has hosted several DFA-related events, including the label's tenth-anniversary party and numerous sets by alums like Whang.
Though Mahoney's the lone DFA rep this go-around, he'll be joined by local indie dance heavies Laura (of Miami) and Patrick Walsh.
To hijack Mahoney's phrase, it's gonna be a "Future Classic."
