Attend this film + music event: Alloy Orchestra's "Wild and Weird" @ the Somerville Theatre

Filmstudie (1926)

Now that you all know how cool silent movies can be after watching the Oscar Best Picture nominee The Artist (if you haven't yet seen it, you must), take it up another notch by experiencing the Alloy Orchestra's "Wild and Weird,"  a compilation of classic silent shorts accompanied by the legendary ensemble performing their own original soundtracks. The selections range from the Dadaist Filmstudie (1926) by Hans Richter to the hallucinatory Dreams of a Rarebit Fiend (1906) by Edwin S. Porter. As you probably already deduced after watching Hugo, those early filmmakers were some freaky dudes. It takes place on Saturday, February 4 @ 8 pm at the Somerville Theatre, 55 Davis Square, Somerville | $25 | 617.625.4088 or
