A documentary chronicling LCD Soundsystem’s final days surrounding their last show at Madison Square Garden last April, SHUT UP AND PLAY THE HITS, will debut at the upcoming Sundance Film Festival. The film, directed by Dylan Southern and Will Lovelace, follows LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy over a crucial 48-hour period, from the day of their final gig at Madison Square Garden to the morning after. SHUT UP AND PLAY THIS HITS premiers at Sundance on January 22. While it will no doubt be bittersweet viewing, I’m glad that the final gig by one of the great bands of the ’00s was both done with such class and filmed for the rest of us to enjoy.
