Shut Up And Play The Hits (7/31, 5:00pm)

With the release of their first album in 2005, LCD Soundsystem changed the face of dance music, combining equal parts punk, soul, and disco. Bolstered by Grammy nominations and recognition as one of the best live bands in the world, their devoted fan base steadily grew — but they shocked the music world in early 2011 when, during their tour to support their first Billboard Top 10 debut, they announced that their largest gig ever (happening at Madison Square Garden) would also be their last gig ever. With fly-on-the-wall access, co-directors Dylan Southern and Will Lovelace’s concert film captures the final 48 hours of a band in complete control of its destiny. Packed with high-energy farewell performances, and punctuated by a frank conversation on success and rock stardom between bandleader James Murphy and writer Chuck Klosterman, Shut Up And Play The Hits is “The Last Waltz for the electro-DJ-generation” (Twitch.com).
Dirs. Dylan Southern & Will Lovelace, 2011, HD presentation, 105 min.
