LCD Soundsystem Documentary To Premiere At Sundance 2012, James DJing BK Bazaar On December 15

We've made no secret of our love for recently-defunct dance heroes LCD Soundsystem, and have been watching for updates on the release of the DVD documenting their final show at Madison Square Garden with a pretty laser-like focus.

Well it looks like we'll want to start checking out plane ticket prices, as Sundance has announced that it will be premiering said documentary at its 2012 Festival next month. Entitled SHUT UP AND PLAY THE HITS, the documentary will cover not only the show itself but the entire 48 hours surrounding it, including what I assume must have been a MASSIVE post-show hangover for frontman James Murphy the next morning. PFork notes that the admittedly hilarious title of the doc came from Arcade Fire frontguy Win Butler (who showed up at the MSG show to rock through "North American Scum"), and that Murphy also has a featured role in another Sundance-premiering flick called The Comedy along with  Tim & Eric Awesome Show Great Job's Tim Heidecker... whose new movie Tim & Eric's Billion Dollar Movie will also premiere at Sundance.

Yeah that's a lot of awesome to pack into one sentence, and it'll be a great Sundance for anyone who can go. If you're in NYC and want to see Murphy even sooner, however, he's got a headlining DJ set at the Brooklyn Night Bazaar on December 15, so go get tickets to that right now.
