James Murphy DJ Set at Gulfstream Park August 20

After ending his dance-punk collective LCD Soundsystem in 2011, DFA Records founder James Murphy has probably enjoyed some much-needed relaxation for a change. He released a movie. Opened a wine bar. Did some production work.

Life is really good for James Murphy right now.

So like any good retiree, Murphy is probably getting that itch to hit the slot machines, bet on some horses, and soak in the South Florida sun. He'll be able to do just that when he gets behind the decks for the Lexus Pop-Up Concert Series Powered by Pandora on August 20 at Gulfstream Park. Yes, Gulfstream Park. As in, the casino-shopping complex in Hallandale Beach.

The odd location aside, the best part of the event is it's free. So if you want to "Dance Yrself Clean" with the DFA leader, all you have to do is claim your ticket at eventbrite.com. It's 21-and-over only, and RSVP'ing doesn't guarantee admission, so get there early. Hell, make a whole day of it — enjoy some gambling till evening, then dance to the Murphy-provided beats until night.

And if you foolishly missed LCD Soundsystem's final South Florida show in 2010 or the invite-only Art Basel Miami Beach party a few months later, this probably won't make up for that. Still, personally, we've never heard a James Murphy DJ set we didn't like.

But here's the band together for old times' sake:
