Louise Brooks at Glastonbury Music Festival

On Saturday June 28th, The Dodge Brothers & Neil Brand become the first band to accompany a silent film at the famous Glastonbury Festival in England. The long running festival, which draws more than 100,00 people, is one of the biggest musical events in the world. On this year's schedule are Jack White, Lily Allen, Metallica, Caro Emerald, Yoko Ono, Arcade Fire, Robert Plant, Bryan Ferry, tUnE-yArDs, and many others.

The film The Dodge Brothers will accompany is Beggars of Life (1928), starring Louise Brooks. I guess that means Louise Brooks is the first silent film star to "play" Glastonbury. This is a trailer of what they'll do...
