Photos: Special Disco Version, Black Lips at Grand Central

By | December 2nd, 2011 | 1 Comment

With YACHT at Electric Pickle, Neon Indian at Bardot, and Special Disco Version (the DJ project of LCD Soundsystem members James Murphy and Pat Mahoney) and Black Lips at Grand Central, Thursday night presented the music fiend with a dilemma. (See the Art Basel Music Guide — tonight is barely easier.) After letting a dart toss decide it, we ended up at Grand Central, where there was a wrap-around line of people who were probably hoping Nancy Whang would show up and SDV would transform into almost LCD. (Whang is in town for a DJ set at Bardot Saturday night. Again, see the Art Basel Music Guide.) That didn’t happen, but it was still a fun show. Here are our favorite 10 photos from the night. To see many more, head over to the Beached Miami Facebook page.

The Black Lips went on before James Murphy, seen in the first photo, and Pat Mahoney manned the decks.

As with every event during Art Basel Miami Beach, the show was heavily branded. Apparently, that didn’t stop Ewan McGregor* from taking a load off in the house Yaris.

James and Pat, together again.

*That wasn’t really Ewan McGregor. But we do really have more photos on our Facebook page.
