The Sound of Jarmusch + Down by Law

It’s hard to imagine a film by Jim Jarmusch in which music doesn’t have a role to play. Eye on Sound: POP! pays tribute to the scores and soundtracks of Jarmusch's films with a live show by a specially formed band. Followed by: Down by Law, featuring Tom Waits, John Lurie and Roberto Benigni.
