 And I’m _____. During a Silent Music Revival event a classic silent short film is projected while a local band plays music to act as the live soundtrack.

As an added twist the band does not see the film prior the event, and therefore creates an improvised score. On Sunday, January 15th, Silent Music Revival presents Now You Tell One, with musical score by Nick Coward and the Last Battle. The event will take place at Gallery 5, 200 West Marshall Street, and 8:00 PM. For more information, visit
