The Walker Art Center is once again hosting three nights of Music & Movies in Loring Park and wrapping up the series with a unique event on its own grounds, this time around with Brute Heart composing and performing an original score during a screening of the silent film The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. Other bands on the bill this year include an additional pair of local acts — recent Domino Records signees Night Moves and folk-rock band Rogue Valley — plus Zimbabwean Afropop artist Oliver “Tuku” Mtukudzi.

DJs from 89.3 The Current will also be on hand to spin tracks each night. Here’s the full schedule of bands and films, which were selected around the theme of “dreams and nightmares” to coincide with the Walker’s Midnight Party exhibit:
