James Murphy Is Coming To The It'll Do Club in November.

Despite that familiar it's-better-to-burn-out-than-to-fade-away adage, few humans have actually had the resolve to walk away from a field they've dominated whilst still at the top of their game.

Michael Jordan and Jay-Z are two examples that quickly come to mind — until you remember that neither of these legends' initial retirements last very long at all.

Thus far, though, LCD Soundsystem's sold-out, April 2, 2011 retirement gig at New York's Madison Square Garden very much remains that iconic, revered band's final show. And while LCD mastermind James Murphy has kept himself busy the past two years — doing things like breaking Ad-Rock's refrigerator and producing a decidedly-LCD-sounding album for indie darlings Arcade Fire — the mastermind behind the project has yet to go back on his word and announce that he's got any plans to get his band back together to headline a big-name festival.

But that doesn't mean he's going quietly into that good night. This morning, it was announced that Murphy will man the decks at the It'll Do Club on Saturday, November 30, spinning the hits and perhaps even playing some Daft Punk for the rock kids.

Tickets will be available here on Friday, September 20 at 10 a.m., so you better bookmark that sucker ASAP.

We should note, of course, that Murphy's far from the only big name act that'll be performing at the It'll Do in the coming months: On Saturday, October 19, '80s icon Boy George will be performing a DJ set (advance tickets available here); and, on Friday, November 8, the club will play host to English electronic favorites Simian Mobile Disco (get your tickets for that one here).

And this is before we even get into our own recurring, first-Friday-of-the-month bash at the club, Pop That, which continues next month with special guest Brenmar. If it's anything like our debut run of that party from earlier this month, you'll want to come to this next one, too
