The DFA Records "20 Years of Bad Luck" anniversary party is this Saturday (3/26) at Knockdown Center, featuring a mix of live performances and DJ sets from DFA acts across the label's first two decades, including 2ManyDJs, Juan Maclean, Black Dice, Museum of Love, and more. DFA founder and LCD Soundsysterm frontman James Murphy just posted an update about what folks can expect, saying that they just released "the last bit of tickets" for the show. He also hinted about a surprise at the start of the night.
"so, if you want to come, you might want to get a ticket now. and if you're coming, come early and stay late," Murphy wrote at the end of his update. "i don't know how to say this without being annoying, but the very first band may be, um, an original line up 30 minute set of old people playing their oldest music as a five piece for the first time since, i don't know, 2005? 2006?"
Infer from that what you will. Tickets are still available. Doors are at 8 PM and the party goes till 4 AM.
Here is the rest of James Murphy's update.
