The Chemical Brothers Concert Film "Don't Think" Premiering On January 26

As an absolute sucker for films focused on enduring and awesome electronic acts ('sup Daft Punk's Interstella 5555), I'm psyched to share that the new concert film from The Chemical Brothers, Don't Think, will be hitting theatres in 2012. Lucky fans in 20 cities worldwide will get an advance screening of the film on January 26 and can pick up tickets for the screenings over here.

The movie is a fully immersive documentary on the British electronic duo's performance at Japan's Fujirock Festival from late July, and the site describes it thusly:

You blink awake and find yourself halfway up the side of a Japanese mountain. It’s night time, right at the sticky middle point of summer. You’re in an opening in a darkened wood surrounded by – say – 50,000 other revelers, each of them frenzied; delirious from an all-encompassing psychedelia that seems to be emanating from a stage somewhere in the near distance. Above you, lights swoop and strafe across armies of marching toy robots and galloping deconstructed horses; paint balls explode in front of borderline psychotic clowns. You’re in the thick of it, consumed by the spectacle, absorbed into the crowd, surrendering to the noise and the visuals. Stunned by the jaw-dropping intensity of what you’re witnessing, just one thought flashes through your febrile mind. 

Don’t Think. Just let it flow.

Sounds fucking awesome. But don't just take their word for it - check out the trailer and maybe bring a pacifier or something. I also posted the video for "Star Guitar" below because I felt like it.
