Already taking this thread a bit off topic but for the second season of Fred Armisen and Bill Hader's show Documentary Now they're doing a Stop Making Sense parody and filming a live show in CA that's open to the public.

It's not on that site, but I watched "Shut Up and Play the Hits" on Vice last week. I'd never seen it, because of course I'd never heard of LCD Soundsystem until the appeared on the lineup. I really enjoyed watching it. My fave music documentaries are "Muscle Shoals" and "Twenty Feet from Stardom"
New Oasis film Supersonic is very well done. Lots of documentaries (even Ron Howard's excellent "Eight Days a Week") seem to skim the surface and just tell the story of the band. Supersonic is more patient though and dives deeper into the 3 year period where they rose to prominence and includes amazing footage and access to tell the story from many perspectives. Probably doesn't hurt that I knew more about their music and the tabloid stuff than the real story of their existence and rise to fame but I'm grateful for having gained that knowledge from watching the film.
Organized Noize on Netflix is great. Its a 2 hour documentary about Organized Noize (Rico Wade, Sleepy Brown, Ray Murray) and the first hour is almost exclusively featuring Outkast and the whole Dungeon Mob/Goodie Mob. I found out they produced Waterfalls by TLC in this documentary Then obviously Daft Punk Unchained is dope as well.
