Popular festival offering Shut Up and Play the Hits quite accurately captured the agony and the ecstasy of LCD Soundsystem’s final show as a collective, and while filming a concert and putting it on the big screen for consumption might have lessened its inherent impact on viewers, the doc was quite warmly received. The film played at both Sundance and SXSW (at the former fest, our own Allison Loring called it “a moving rock-doc” “not only takes you inside Madison Square Garden for an up close seat at the band’s final show, [but] really shows the feelings that would accompany making the decision to end such a big part of your life and looking towards what will happen next”), and the buzz at both festivals was that the film has to be seen on the big screen with a big sound system to back it up.

In short – it will rock your face off, and it’s damn hard to do that at home, even with the best equipment money can buy (and who can afford that?).

Fortunately, Oscilloscope (the film’s distributor), agrees, and will release the film in theaters for a special one night only engagement on Wednesday, July 18th. You can check out a full list of theaters playing the film after the break, and you can always Demand It on its official page over at Oscilloscope.
