With the Splendour in the Grass juggernaut rapidly approaching, festival headliner LCD Soundsystem are packing more than giant mirror balls and vintage microphones into their Australia-bound suitcase. Coinciding with their farewell tour (This Is Happening is their latest and final record), LCD Soundsystem and DFA Records will be presenting a visual retrospective of their artwork in an exhibition titled 'That's Cool But Can You Make It More Sh*t?'

On display will be the original sketch of the now instantly recognizable lightning bolt of the DFA label's logo, a selection of DFA's commercial artwork, tour posters, invites for DFA parties around the world and more. There will also be a selection of exclusive material from LCD frontman James Murphy's personal collection.

The exhibition runs from Wednesday July 28th until Tuesday August 3rd, 11am to 6pm daily, at Tom Dunne Gallery, 11 Little Burton Street, Darlinghurst.
