    Discovery Green and Houston Public Radio present Houston Public Radio Silent Film Concerts. At the Anheuser-Busch Stage and Fondren Performance Space. Houston Public Radio presents a series of silent film screenings accompanied by live music. Back by popular demand, classic silent films get a new twist thanks to Texas’ best indie classical musicians.

    Friday, November 4 at 7:30pm: The Cameraman  After becoming infatuated with a pretty office worker for MGM Newsreels, Buster Keaton trades in his tintype operation for a movie camera and sets out to impress the girl (and MGM) with his work. Bee Vs. Moth, a multiple-genre, weirdo instrumental rock band from Austin, Texas performs a live original soundtrack for the film.

    Here the great stone-face plays a young man who tries to impress a girl by becoming a newsreel cameraman. Of course, nothing goes right. He forgets to load the camera or he does it wrong or he's in the wrong place at the wrong time. In short, everything gets screwed up, and nobody screws everything up more entertainingly than the great Keaton.

    Brass-laden Bee Vs. Moth's "multiple-genre, weirdo instrumental” is just right for this anarchic laugh riot. The group recently presented their music for the film last spring at SXSW.
