LCD Soundsystem will perform as part of the Amazon Music virtual event The LCD Soundsystem Holiday Special later this month. The career-spanning set follows a sitcom named All My Friends after the band’s 2007 song of the same name.
The LCD Soundsystem Holiday Special can be viewed both on the Amazon Music channel on Twitch and Prime Video starting at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT on December 22. Eric Wareheim (Tim & Eric) directed and stars as LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy in the sitcom. Additionally, Christine Ko portrays keyboardist Nancy Whang with Macaulay Culkin as drummer Pat Mahoney, Tony Cavalero as synth player Nick Millhiser, Cory Loykasek as multi-instrumentalist Al Doyle, Aparna Nancherla as synth player Abby Echiverri, Jon Daly as bassist Tyler Pope, Rex Lee as band manager Brian Graf, Luenell as the band’s tour manager and Eric’s puppet as synth player Korey Richey.
LCD Soundsystem’s set will include the live debut of “Christmas With Break Your Heart,” the band’s 2015 holiday single. “I’ve already conquered film, James has conquered music, but we have yet to conquer the sitcom—the HIGHEST form of art,” stated Eric Wareheim in a press release. “We’ve been working on this project for 15 years, and for this show we’re unveiling a uniquely emotional perspective of the sitcom universe for the holidays—provided by one of the greatest bands of all time and my dear friends, LCD Soundsystem. I can’t believe Amazon Music is letting us do this.”
