LCD Soundsystem's <em>Shut Up And Play The Hits</em> Scheduled For Summer Release

One year ago today, LCD Soundsystem, hundreds of friends and thousands of fans converged on Madison Square Garden for James Murphy and co.’s farewell performance. All the while, the cameras were rolling, resulting in Shut Up And Play the Hits, a documentary that follows Murphy and the band in the days leading up to, during and after the tumultuous four-hour farewell.

Now, Oscilloscope Laboratories has announced that it has acquired the rights to the film and is planning special one-night-only releases of the film at theaters across the U.S. this summer. The film, directed by Dylan Southern and Will Lovelace, made its debut at the Sundance Film Festival this year, with an encore presentation at SXSW. For more information about the film and its impending releases, check out the film’s website and Twitter, and watch the trailer below:
