LCD Soundsystem: Shut Up And Play The Hits

For music fans across the globe 2011 will be remembered as the year they said goodbye to one of the decades most most influential and iconic bands - LCD Soundsystem.
With the release of their acclaimed documentary Shut Up And Play The Hits, they allowed viewers to witness in almost-candid fashion the bands climactic ending at their last ever show at Madison Square Garden. Sold out within hours and reported live by almost every major music-media outlet online the show was a cultural milestone that marked the end of an era for a generation of cowbell enthusiasts, aging hipsters, and disco infiltrators.

So with this in mind, Now Wave has decided to pay one final tribute to James, Nancy, Pat and the gang whilst simultaneously attempting to break up the post-Christmas/pre-NYE lull by screening the accompanying concert film in full.

Coming in at almost 4 hours in length the film, which features camera work from Spike Jonze and Yorick Le Saux, sees the band play a setlist spanning their entire career and also features guest appearances from members of The Arcade Fire, Hot Chip, Soulwax, The Jaun Mclean, Shit Robot and comedian Reggie Watts as the group take on an eclectic range of covers including tracks by Daft Punk, Alan Vega, and Harry Nilsson.

Attendees can be sure to leave the popcorn at home as this will be an all-standing, or rather all-dancing affair, as we make use of Gorilla's complete staging setup - including the full PA, smoke and lighting facilities in an attempt to recreate the party atmosphere of an LCD Soundsystem concert.
