The Warehouse Project is finally back, and the task of unveiling the new season was handed over to another returning band of heroes as James Murphy’s LCD Soundsystem took to Store Street. Packed to capacity in anticipation of the New York disco-punks’ first Manchester gig since ending their four year hiatus, the Manchester crowd seemed bang up for a party, and LCD Soundsystem were certainly in the mood to give them one. Check out these pictures from the weekend double header, and see if they don’t get you all hot under the collar ahead of the full WHP series launching this weekend.
(A busy stage saw James Murphy's full crew reunite)
(Keyboardist Nancy Whang laid down some outrageously fat riffs on an assortment of spaceship-esque synthesisers)
(As always, Store Street was a visual spectacle with its dramatic lighting and energetic crowd)
(LCD laid down a variety of hits new and old, with crowd-pleasers aplenty thanks to the likes of "Dance Yrself Clean", "All My Friends", "Tribulations" and more.)
(Support from Hot Chip's Joe Goddard meant the night got off to a perfect start too)
Missed this one? The Warehouse Project returns this weekend as two sold-out shows usher in the full autumn and winter season. Shows curated by the likes of Floating Points, ANTS, Annie Mac, Giggs, CIRCUS, Paradise and more are still on sale.
