A Smoke reunion of sorts...

Hubcap City is teaming up with former Smoke cellist Brian Halloran to perform an impromptu soundtrack to Carl Dreyer's silent film, The Passion of Joan of Arc at Opal Gallery in L5P on Sat., July 25.

There is a striking resemblance between Melle Falconetti, the actress who plays Joan d'Arc in the film, and Smoke's enigmatic frontman Benjamin shortly before he died, so it doesn't take much thought to figure out why HC gravitated toward this project.

With Bill Taft, Will Fratesi and Halloran all performing together, I think it's safe to say that this is the closest thing to a Smoke reunion we're ever going to see. I also hear that they've exhumed some old Smoke songs for the show as well.

The show is free and the music/film starts at sundown. Bring lawn chairs.
