A diverse array of stars came out July 17 for the Los Angeles bow of Oscilloscope’s “Shut Up and Play the Hits,” which examines the end of dance-punk band LCD Soundsystem. Though it was a relaxed red carpet affair at Arclight Cinemas in Hollywood — “Whoa, it’s so mellow! Love it,” chirped a pleased Elijah Wood — the special screening hosted everyone from Wood to Moby to Spike Jonze, who left the screening grinning.
The pic chronicles the band’s very last, epic four-hour show at Madison Square Garden, but Danny Masterson, a “big fan” of the band, still has hope they’ll return.
“You know they’re gonna play another show sometime,” the thesp said. “Just seeing how much they love it.”
