LCD Soundsystem closed out their career by playing five-NYC shows, the last of which was at Madison Square Garden (on 4/2/2011). A documentary of not only the show but the prep FOR the show called Shut Up and Play the Hits, directed by Dylan Southern and Will Lovelace, made its debut at Sundance earlier this year and has only shown at a handful of festivals. On July 18, the documentary will be shown at theaters throughout the US. You’ll be able to see it here in Chicago but ONLY at the Music Box. At the moment there appears to be just one, 7:30PM showing, which goes on sale on June 8 at noon CST. Maybe they’ll add a few more? All dates are listed below.

The film is being distributed by Oscilloscope Laboratories, a production/distribution company owned by late Beastie Adam Yauch. Oscilloscope and the Creators Project are running a contest which includes a trip to NYC, two nights at the swanky Ace Hotel, and a meet and greet with James Murphy (I feel a bit too much like a travel agent). Details on how to enter to win all of that great stuff are over at BrooklynVegan.

As mentioned, Soundsystem members James Murphy and Pat Mahoney are headed to Chicago to DJ the Wavefront Festival. Though they are billed separately, the two have been known to DJ together. Festival passes are still available.
