Saw this tonight, for its one-night theatrical release, and of course, I thought it was fucking phenomenal. Part documentary, part concert film, part celebratory wake. The intermittent scenes from Chuck Klosterman’s interview with James prior to the final show are insightful and thought-provoking, and show the man really wrestling his decision to end the band. And my god, the music. Every song is a climax. 

See it when you can. It won’t disappoint (except, you know, for the sad realization that oh yeah, you just watched the funeral pyre for one of the best bands of its generation).

LCD Soundsystem  |  ”Dance Yrself Clean”

Via Pitchfork:

In a new unofficial video for This Is Happening opener “Dance Yrself Clean”, Kermit the Frog teams up with Animal, Miss Piggy, and a baby version of “Sesame Street” import the Cookie Monster to play the song for a surprised and delighted crowd in the British seaside town of Brighton. Think U2’s classic "Where the Streets Have No Name" video, except with Muppets. And LCD Soundsystem music. The clip was directed by Javier Douglas.  After watching all nine minutes of this video, you will inevitably like “Dance Yrself Clean” more than you already did. Which is saying something.

FFFFFFUUUUU-

FFFFFFUUUUU-
