Who runs the world? Girls. Enter Nancy Whang and Gavin Rayna Russom — the ladies of LCD Soundsystem.

As keyboard players, vocalists, and synthesizing creatives behind the James Murphy-led (and recent Grammy Award-winning) dance outfit, international artists Whang and Russom have developed their own sonic journey outside of LCD Soundsystem and will tag-team the DJ booth on their first solo joint tour. A dollar from each ticket sale will support RAINN (Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network) and each tour stop will feature local women and non-binary artists as support.

Ladies of LCD Soundsystem will perform at 9 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 25 at Grasshopper Underground; 22757 Woodward Ave., Ferndale; 248-298-0330; thegrasshopperunderground.com; Tickets are $11.
