Tonight we went out to see one of our favorite groups--The Alloy Orchestra.
They are a group of musicians that compose and perform music for silent movies.
I learned about these guys on NPR about fifteen years ago. They combine one of my favorite things, movies, with another favorite--live performance.
We have seen many of their performances, and I enjoy bringing Michael to them when we can. He saw his first silent movie with a musical performance by The Alloy Orchestra (it was The Black Pirate). Tonight, however, was more of an adult movie. It was called The Last Command. I was very impressed by this film, which is noted for being the first movie given a best actor academy award. One of the reasons I love going to these performances is that I find hidden classics.
I love silent movies and enjoyed the evening.
