Smart Bets: Ben Lovett premiers Black Curtain

More than a year after a weekend-long film shoot at the Masonic Temple wrapped on Ben Lovett's Black Curtain, the music video/short film is set to screen during a night of live music performances at Isis. A preview of the lush, dramatic video reveals a slick, professional work of art. But it's also rife with mystery, dark magic and a stunt or two. A local cast and crew of 200 volunteers (and co-star cabaret performer Mandy Lauderdale) deliver chills and nuanced emotion in the Edwardian-themed eight-minute narrative. The Saturday, June 8 premiere includes a performance by contortionist Yanni, behind-the-scenes footage, original artwork and photography from the production. The John Henrys close the evening. 7 p.m., free. Photo by Nate Dorn
