Nancy Whang (LCD Soundsystem) DJing Brooklyn Bowl On 8/20

Not gonna lie - the Fucking Nostalgic team is still pretty wistful about the end of our favorite NYC dance-punk / electronic band LCD Soundsystem. We all had a blast rocking out on the floor at their final show at Madison Square Garden, and the recent release of an unofficial LEGO-based tribute to the band's "All My Friends" music video definitely tugged at our heartstrings a little more.

But even with the end of LCD, James Murphy has been keeping very busy DJing around the world, kindasortamaybe collaborating with Reggie Watts, and getting ready to cook at fancy food festivals. Not a bad "retirement," I'd say. However, if you're looking for a more immediate, local, and FREE fix of our dance scene heroes, LCD Soundsystem keyboardist and chanteuse Nancy Whang will be over at Brooklyn Bowl next Saturday (August 20) to throw down on the decks with her own DJ set, along with a live performance by Workout.

Brooklyn Bowl is one of my favorite venues in the city and admission for this party is free if you RSVP at, so definitely make it happen. Interestingly enough, this is a couple of blocks away from where another excellent nostalgic dance-punk band, The Rapture - who just returned to Murphy's DFA Records - will be throwing down the dance party of the summer at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Gonna go ahead and assume that's not a coincidence, so be sure to make it out to Brooklyn for a classic DFA-fueled summer night.

[UPDATE: She's also DJing tomorrow night (8/12) at Union Pool. Thanks to My Free Concert for the heads up.]

And because why the hell not, check out multiple Nancies in the video for Shit Robot's "Take 'Em Up" below the jump.
