Hit:Moe Bar, for having the brilliant idea of screening the last LCD Soundsystem show on a projector, live from Madison Square Garden. A ton of people came, and it was a great, great time. More bars should do this.
Miss: The Internet--more specifically, buffering. If you were there, you know what I mean. Nothing says party foul like a buffering bar cutting off the music--again and again and again--when a roomful of people are trying to dance their asses off and pay tribute to a seminal event in pop history. The reoccurrence of said buffering was a total bummer each and every time, made less frustrating only by . . .
Hit: Starting to drink at 6 p.m. and continuing for four hours. Since the show was live from New York (at 9 p.m. there), things got started way early here in Seattle and kept going for the entirety of the three-hour, 45-minute concert. Again, brilliant idea, Moe Bar!
Hit: Reggie Watts. You opened for Devo last year, you appeared with Donald Glover at SXSW last month, and you jammed onstage with LCD Soundsystem at fucking Madison Square Garden. You have a lot of cool friends. (Also, hi, Arcade Fire & Daft Punk!)
Hit: Nike. You were well-represented, for about 45 minutes and 33 seconds.
Hit: "All My Friends." "Losing My Edge." "Daft Punk Is Playing at My House." "Yeah." In other words, an unforgettable contribution. Until the reunion show Goodbye, LCD Soundsystem!
