As soon as LCD Soundsystem’s break-up and final shows were announced, people started freaking out. Friends we didn’t even realize were into James Murphy and co. were lamenting the end of an era. Phrases like “the most important band of the 21st century” were thrown around. And the rush to buy tickets for that last Madison Square Garden performance was nothing short of Beatlemania, ca. 1964.
So it’s sort of inevitable that the most bittersweet night in hipster history would be immortalized on film. Shut Up and Play the Hits, directed by Dylan Southern and Will Lovelace (who you might remember as the team behind Blur’s No Distance Left to Run), chronicles the MSG show and the potentially generation-defining band’s demise. Judging by the trailer, the documentary will feature ample footage from the concert, some wistful interviews, critical input from Chuck Klosterman, lots of white people hugging, and more than one adorable shot of Murphy’s French bulldog.
