LCD Soundsystem Shares Clip From Biopic

On July 18, Shut Up And Play The Hits, a documentary about New York’s beloved electro party band LCD Soundsystem will open for one night only in theaters around the country. (Check out a list of participating cinemas here). 

But if you need a little something to tide you over—something other than listening to the band’s albums on repeat for days at a time—today’s your lucky day. A clip from the film has found its way online, thanks to, and shows the band playing fan favorite “Dance Yrself Clean,” from last year’s album This Is Happening, at Manhattan’s Madison Square Garden. It was, in fact, the band’s final show, which also serves as a linchpin for the (totally awesome, we’ve seen it) movie. 

The release of the film brings up all sorts of burning questions about what LCD frontman and mastermind James Murphy will do with himself now that the group has been dismantled. One possibility: barista.

After the film’s screening at Sundance, Murphy—who spends a lot of time in the film making coffee—told New York Magazine, “"For my birthday, my girlfriend got me a training course with the world champion. That’s what I’m going to do when I get back to London.”  

Murphy also revealed that he was planning to develop his own blend of java, but wouldn’t go into detail.

"I can’t talk about that because I’m still in negotiations," he said. "I love that we’re here and talking about a film, but I’m like, ‘I can’t really talk about the coffee.’”
