Relive Your Love For LCD Soundsystem (And Party For A Cool Cause)

If you find yourself still mourning the end of LCD Soundsystem, or even watching the video of the final concert on a regular basis, this is the party for you. The Kitchen, NYC's premiere nonprofit event space, is hosting their annual spring gala benefit, and the after-party will feature a DJ set by none other than James Murphy himself. He'll be spinning his upbeat electronica for the bold-faced crowd, which will include the night's honorees, Joan Jonas and Steve Reich, among other big names. Proceeds for the bash will fund The Kitchen's upcoming season, supporting innovative artists, dancers and performers. Tickets for the after-party run $75, a small price to pay for a night with some of music and art's best up-and-coming players.
For those with deeper pockets, there will also be a formal cocktail hour and dinner at 6 p.m., with individual seats starting at $500. You'll get the chance to mingle with the evening's co-chairs — the likes of Selby Drummond and Matthew Doull — and have one huge tax deduction, natch.
Where: Capitale, 130 Bowery (at Grand Street); 212-334-5500.
When: Wednesday, May 23, after-party from 9:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m.
