Shut Up and Play the Hits

When you start a band, do you imagine how it will end? On April 2, 2011, LCD Soundsystem played its final show at Madison Square Garden. LCD frontman James Murphy had made the conscious decision to disband the band at the peak of its popularity after the biggest concert of its career. The documentary Shut Up and Play the Hits follows the days leading up to the concert, the show itself, and the aftermath/ramifications of Murphy's decision, offering a "fly-on-the-wall look at the final hours of a band completely self-conscious of its destiny," according to Wired's Beth Carter.
