About the Invincible Czars:
The Invincible Czars make quirky, bold music for lovers of everything in the “other” category. Inspired by comics, sci-fi, fantasy & horror stories, cartoons, comedians, and classical composers, they’re eclectic, dynamic and always have a cinematic flair.
In 1998, guitarist Josh Robins started recording musical themes into his four-track recorder that sounded more like bits of movie scores than indie rock songs. He needed more than the usual guitar, bass, and drums to realize these budding rock symphonies; he taught himself to read music, began writing pieces for instruments he couldn’t play, and eventually assembled the first line-up of The Invincible Czars.
Since those early days, The Invincible Czars have evolved from a novel act in Austin’s Red River scene to a reverse classical-crossover powerhouse playing all over the US, blending influences as disparate as Tchaikovsky and Van Halen.
Whether they’re playing a rock show in a club, a live silent film soundtrack in a theater, or a holiday event in a park, The Invincible Czars are always entertaining and out of the ordinary. Their musicianship is complemented with humor, magic tricks, fun and wacky wardrobe, and occasional minor acrobatics.
About the films:
NOSFERATU (F.W. Murnau, 1922 / G) In this highly influential silent horror film (and quite possibly the most important vampire film of the era), the mysterious Count Orlok (Max Schreck) summons Thomas Hutter (Gustav von Wangenheim) to his remote Transylvanian castle in the mountains. The eerie Orlok seeks to buy a house near Hutter and his wife, Ellen (Greta Schroeder). After Orlok reveals his vampire nature, Hutter struggles to escape the castle, knowing that Ellen is in grave danger. Meanwhile Orlok’s servant, Knock (Alexander Granach), prepares for his master to arrive at his new home.
“NOSFERATU is the seminal moment for horror cinema.” (Total Film)
“So this is it: ground zero, the birth of horror cinema.” (Time Out)
DR. JEKYLL & MR. HYDE (John S. Robertson, 1920 / G) Scientist Dr. Henry Jekyll (John Barrymore – yes, Drew’s grandfather!) is intelligent and diligent, but also uptight and extremely serious about his work. When his friend, Sir George Carew (Brandon Hurst), takes him to a show featuring the sensual Miss Gina (Nita Naldi), an aroused Jekyll sets out on a quest to separate man’s saintly and sinful sides. His experiments succeed, and his evil alter ego, Mr. Hyde, is created. As the doctor uncontrollably alternates between Jekyll and Hyde, danger looms.
