Gavin Rayna Russom and Nancy Whang will embark on a joint DJ tour as the Ladies of LCD Soundsystem this fall. The two members of the James Murphy-fronted dance outfit will play 16 dates, starting October 18th in Salt Lake City and ending roughly six weeks later in Los Angeles. Additional shows will be announced at a later date.
Russom and Whang plan to pick local performers, focusing on women and non-binary musicians, to open each of their dates. In addition, the two plan to donate $1 from each ticket to the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network (RAINN), the largest anti-sexual violence organization in the U.S.
LCD Soundsystem’s last album, American Dream, came out in September 2017, debuting at Number One on the Billboard 200 with 85,000 equivalent album units sold in its first week. In addition, second single “Tonite” later won the group a Grammy.
Whang is also in another dance music ensemble, the Juan MacLean; the group released a new single titled “What Do You Feel Free About?” in June.
