Here’s an exclusive clip from the upcoming LCD Soundsystem documentary Shut Up And Play The Hits, chronicling the band’s final show at Madison Square Garden.

With more than 300 hours of film shot during the 2010 Vans Warped Tour, this documents the true stories of modern rock and roll from every possible angle: the kids playing parking lots to get signed; the veteran stage manager whose life was saved by the tour; the musicians who cross over to the mainstream while on the road; this is Cinema Vèritè story-telling at its finest.
Swissted.com is an ongoing project by NYC graphic designer Mike Joyce. Combining love of punk rock and Swiss modernism, which have nothing to do with one another, he redesigns vintage punk, hardcore and indie show flyers into typographic posters. Each is sized to the standard Swiss kiosk dimensions of 35.5 inches wide by 50 inches high and set in Berthold Akzidenz Grotesk. All of these shows happened.
