I love it when people perform live soundtracks for silent films, which is why I love that one of PIFA's events is just that. At the Kimmel Center on April 29, you can check out Le Voyage dans la Lune (a 1902 French film that the Smashing Pumpkins's “Tonight Tonight” video was based on) and Buster Keaton's Sherlock Jr. Music is courtesy of Martha Graham Cracker and "the kids of Independent Rock," which I assume is an organization that teaches music to children and not just a group of random kids birthed from alternative musicians. Although, I suppose, those things do not need to be mutually exclusive.
