Tags: LCD Soundsystem, Shut Up And Play The Hits


It’s hard to believe that it has only been about a year and a half since indie music darlings LCD Soundsystem announced their disbandment. Quickly growing into one of the most popular bands, they suddenly called it quits, sending shockwaves across the interwebs. For their final show in their hometown of NYC, James Murphy and company arranged to have the entire extravaganza filmed. The stellar performance clocked in an nearly 4 hours, featuring special guests like Reggie Watts. Select scenes of this concert made it into a documentary, which also shadowed Murphy around both before and after the epic event.

Shut Up And Play The Hits has been receiving reviews, but up to this point has only been screened at film festivals, including both Sundance and SXSW this year.  The late Beastie Boys‘ Adam Yauch said this about it before he passed away:

“It can be pretty clear when a band starts, but perhaps less so when it ends, or how it should end. In that sense, it’s brilliant of James [Murphy] to end it in such a definitive way.”

As previously reported at the end of May, Yauch’s Oscilloscope Laboratories is distributing the movie, which makes its’ debut in local theaters in the US for one night only: tonight! Watch the trailer, then look below for locations. Check local listings for times.
