LCD Soundsystem's 'Shut Up and Play the Hits' hits theaters one-night-only
Documentary-feature playing in six dozen movie theaters nationwide on July 18
On July 18, James Murphy and his band LCD Soundsystem will be taking the stage at Madison Square Garden once more -- on the screens at about six dozen movie theaters nationwide.
More than six months after the dance-rock band bid adieu in "Shut Up and Play the Hits" at its Sundance Film Festival premiere, Oscilloscope Laboratories is taking the documentary-feature on a one-day tour all over the country, with many tickets going on sale June 8.
"Shut Up and Play the Hits" chronicled the day-of -- and the days leading up to -- LCD Soundsystem's final show together at New York's MSG on April 2, 2011. The setlist included special guests like Arcade Fire and Reggie Watts. Dylan Southern and Will Lovelace directed the film.
Above is my interview with Murphy in January. He's since showed up for one-offs, like DJing at Creators Project fest in San Francisco, crafting a single for Converse and in "The Comedy," a film from Jagjaguwar. Read more about "The Comedy" and Murphy's contribution here.
Oscilloscope was founded by Adam "MCA" Yauch of the Beastie Boys, who passed away earlier this month.
