It seems the LCD Soundsystem reunion tour is in full swing! After reuniting on Easter Sunday for their first show in five years, the band has added two more dates: August 2nd and 3rd at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO. The group will be joined by Savages and Museum of Love, putting together two glorious nights of music for all involved.LCD just wrapped up a two night run at NYC’s Webster Hall, where the group came out in full force. The “warm-up” performances saw the band dive through a number of their older hits, including tracks like “Daft Punk Is Playing At My House,” “I Can Change” and more. While the band has said that they’re working on new music, fans only have their lethargic Christmas song as evidence of new work.Still, with performances scheduled for major festivals like Bonnaroo, Coachella, Lollapalooza, Glastonbury and more, there’s plenty of opportunities to see LCD Soundsystem at work.Check out the event poster for their newly-announced two-night Red Rocks run, and tickets can be found here. They go on sale this Friday, April 1st, at 10 AM.
On Friday night, Syracuse University alumni and fans visited Park Bar in Atlanta to enjoy drinks, music and basketball. Derrick Coleman, arguably one of SU’s greatest basketball players, was in attendance — taking photos with bar-goers and conversing with former players. Amid groups of fans and cheers, Coleman was able to step away and speak about this year’s team’s advance to the Final Four and the weekend’s festivities.The Daily Orange: What are your thoughts on Syracuse making it to the Final Four?Derrick Coleman: “You know what? For me, Syracuse making it to the Final Four is like peaks and valleys. You know, we started off playing well early on in the beginning of the season, and as we got into the Big East conference, you know what? We lost two or three games, four games in a row and then you start to question yourself: Do you belong as being one of the top teams in the country? But I thought, during the Big East tournament, we really pulled it all together, we started playing well as a team. I mean our defense was very active, we were aggressive with the basketball on the offensive end of the court, and then, you know what? Once we got to the NCAA Tournament, I just thought it just carried over and that’s why we’re here today down here in Atlanta, Ga., for the Final Four.”The D.O.: Do you have any highlights of this weekend so far?D.C.: “I mean, look, I’m just hanging out with my people [cheers]. What you don’t understand is you know what? This is always the highlight of my life, hanging out with you guys because when I’m in school, I didn’t have a chance to do this, so that’s why you see me back in Syracuse as much as you do, at all the games and whatever because I just want to show everybody around to Syracuse fans I appreciated them when I was in school, so that’s why I come and do what I do.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe D.O.: Do you think Syracuse can win it all?D.C.: “Yes, oh, without question.”The D.O.: Do you have anything else you want to say about this weekend?D.C.: “You know what? Hey guys, look, just enjoy the moment, that’s it. We gotta just take it all in and have fun and enjoy each other, connect with people that you ain’t seen in a while. But the main thing is, we’re going to go root our guys on. We can bring home a national championship.” Comments Published on April 6, 2013 at 10:10 am Contact Maddy: [email protected] Facebook Twitter Google+ Related Stories Syracuse fans, alumni gather at Atlanta restaurant to celebrate Orange’s Final Four appearanceSyracuse fans turn out to attend team’s open practiceGallery: Fans celebrate before the NCAA Tournament in Atlanta
