A Silent Film is an alternative band who hails from the other side of the pond and have been at it since 2005. Why they're only playing the tiny Constellation Room (inside the larger Observatory) is anybody's guess and we'll leave it to you to figure out. Their sound is a piano-heavy rock not unlike Coldplay, but without so much sappy lethargic sentiment. Singer Robert Stevenson's voice hearkens to a simpler time (the '80s) and calls to mind the greats of New Wave, or perhaps just Brandon Flowers of the Killers. Check 'em out.
