LCD Soundsystem ‘Final Moments’ Doc To Premiere At Sundance [Video]
The narrative film, 'Shut Up And Play The Hits,' follows the band's frontman James Murphy over a 48-hour period, culminating with the last ever performance at Madison Square Garden.
Last spring, LCD Soundsystem called it quits, going out with an unforgettable bang. The band eloquently stated: “If it’s a funeral … let’s have the best funeral ever.” And that it was, a series of instantly sold out farewell shows took place in New York City, with a final performance at Madison Square Garden (we were fortunate enough to attend). A new documentary, ‘Shut Up And Play The Hits‘ chronicles the entire magical experience. Taking the viewer into the 48-hour period leading up to the finale and the events surrounding it. We see die-hard fans singing and crying, balloons dropping, disco balls shimmering, Reggie Watts and Arcade Fire cameos, and quiet moments with frontman James Murphy.
