watch / shut up and play the hits trailer

for one day only, July 18, LCD Soundsystem‘s documentary Shut Up and Play the Hits will be screening in theaters across the U.S.

the documentary chronicles the events surrounding the band’s final show at Madison Square Garden on April 2011.

it was directed by Dylan Southern and Will Lovelace and is being distributed by Oscilloscope Laboratories (the distribution company of late Beastie Boy Adam Yauch).

before he died, Yauch said the following about the film: “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.”
