A brand new DJ headlining tour is underway, starring Gavin Rayna Russom and Nancy Whang. The aim of the tour, called "Ladies of LCD Soundsystem," is to celebrate both their expansive catalog as musicians, to highlight the women's work beyond the group, and to include their career-spanning engagements in activism and inclusion.
As such, from city to city, Whang and Russom will share the stage with women and non-binary local performers. Together, as the Ladies of LCD Soundsystem, they are also partnering with PLUS1, an initiative that donates $1 of every concert ticket sale to a humanitarian concern or organization of the performers' choice. For their tour, Whang and Russom have chosen to support the crisis-relief efforts of RAINN, the nation's largest anti-sexual violence support organization, including their 24/7 National Sexual Assault Hotline.
