LCD Soundsystem is kicking off its reunion a few weeks early: James Murphy and co. will perform back-to-back nights at Webster Hall in New York over Easter weekend, performing its first show in nearly five years Mar. 27.

LCD has dubbed the two-night stint as a “Back From The Dead” event, after the group broke up in 2011:

The event is sponsored by Panorama, the new “Coachella East” festival taking place in New York City in July. LCD Soundsystem is among the headliners for the fest.

Speaking of Coachella, LCD Soundsystem’s big reunion was supposed to go down there on Apr. 15, and they’re still headlining of course, but the Webster shows put a slight damper on that grand return. With Guns N’ Roses also spoiling its return pre-Coachella, is the Indio fest… losing its edge?
