LCD Soundsystem is one of the best bands from the last decade. A way of conceiving and making music… the essence of DFA, the group that has influenced an entire generation (Y) and a refreshing dance concept set to shape the sounds of many bands to come.
It’s no surprise then that after their disbandment announcement in 2010 and the official post on their website more or less a year ago, a film, documentary or something in between was being made, shaped, prepared… for our joy…. Revealed last month via Pitchfork, we got to know that a full-on LCD Soundsystem concert movie centered around the band’s final show at Madison Square Garden would have a debut at this year’s Sundance Fest. as part of the out-of-competition “Spotlight” series.
“Shut up and play the hits” was directed by Dylan Southern and Will Lovelace and produced by Lucas Ochoa and Thomas Benski of Pulse Films and James Murphy. The first screening will take place Sunday 22nd @ Egyptian Theatre, but to grab some tickets you’ll have to wait until Monday 23d. More info on screening dates and venues this way.
And while we wait for the doc to cross to this side of the ocean we’ll keep dancing in ecstasy to their never-ending yeahs.
