To celebrate the release of LCD Soundsystem’s latest book, titled LCD, we’re having a launch party during Art Basel Miami at Hotel Victor, soon to be Thompson Ocean Drive. The book of photography, created by Ruvan Wijesooriya, will be released on December 11th, 2012. LCD chronicles the bands’ existence in 216 pages of pure glory and honesty. James Murphy, the bands’ lead singer, says in the intro of the book: “Ruven has been getting in my face for years. He has taken several thousand pictures of LCD over the last few years, and he whittled them down to literally hundreds for this book. We were a band, and these pictures make it clear we were a band.” LCD is an honest lens that is beyond just another book of photos, showcasing interviews with members of the band and various exclusive album art.
Music for the launch party will be carefully curated by a slew of talented DJs including: Eric Duncan, Rub ‘n’ Tug, Nancy Whang, Justin Miller, Hakt and many others including very special guests.
For those who will be in Miami during Art Basel this week, you can stop by the Hotel Victor on Saturday, December 8, where there will be an LCD Soundsystem store. There, you can get the book before the official launch and even get a little keepsake for free.
