One of the Walker Art Center’s most popular programs, the Summer Music & Movies series will return just in time to have a little fun with time. The movies selected in this year’s newly announced lineup -- happening Mondays in August in Loring Park -- all have to do with watching the clock in one form or fashion, which is a tie-in with the Walker’s upcoming exhibit “Christian Marclay: The Clock.”

A punk-inspired visual artist who has collaborated with members of Sonic Youth and John Zorn, Marclay himself will be involved with the music on the last night of the series when it moves to the Walker’s Open Field. Local art-punk band the Cloak Ox will kick off the series, and another homegrown talent, Minneapolis rapper Greg Grease, will perform the second week with his new Afro-electronic band ZuluZuluu. Chicago-reared husband/wife Americana duo the Handsome Family is lined up for the third week. Here’s the full schedule:
