As previously reported, the LCD Soundsystem documentary Shut Up and Play the Hits would screen in select theatres across the United States this summer, with the screening being a "one-night only engagement." Now, the exact details regarding the select screenings have been announced, with the one-night event taking place on July 18th. For a full list of participating theatres head here, and for those wishing to "demand" a screening in their area, you can go here to do so.
Shut Up and Play the Hits follows the events surrounding the New York outfits' highly publicized final performance at Madison Square Garden late last April, with Dylan Southern and Will Lovelace heading the direction. The film is being diributed by the late Beastie Boys member Adam "MCA" Yauch's distribution and production company Oscilloscope Laboratories, and when asked about the film prior to his passing, this is what he had to say: "It can be pretty clear when a band starts, but perhaps less so when it ends, or how it should end. In that sense, it's brilliant of James [Murphy] to end it in such a definitive way."
The Creators Project and Oscilloscope Laboratories are also running a contest where they will send one winner to a screening of the film in New York City, along with a meet-and-greet with James Murphy himself. Head here for details, and above you can watch the official trailer for the documentary.
