On April 2nd 2011, LCD Soundsystem played their final show at Madison Square Garden. LCD frontman James Murphy had made the conscious decision to disband one of the most celebrated and influential bands of its generation at the peak of its popularity. The sold out four hour extravaganza celebrated the band’s career and moved onlookers to tears.
‘Shut Up And Play The Hits’ is both a narrative film documenting this once in a life time performance – an intimate portrait of James Murphy as he navigates the lead-up to the show; the day after and the ramifications of his decision.
Directed by Dylan Southern and Will Lovelace, you can check out the trailer below and find out more at Pulsefilms.com
