Nosferatu Centennial Tour with Invincible Czars


Nosferatu is one of the most revered films in cinema history, and we're bringing our updated soundtrack back for the centennial in 2022!. It is most certainly the most important horror film of the silent era and one of the first vampire movies — though it was almost completely lost when Bram Stoker's widow sued the filmmakers for copyright infringement and most of the prints of the movie were destroyed. Fans, theaters, and media have praised our soundtrack for making the near-century-old movie “actually scary” for modern-day audiences since we debuted it in 2015. We have performed it more than any other film in our catalog - over 100 times - across the US and Canada. Using a mix of acoustic and electric instruments helped. Violin, glockenspiel, organ, flute, bass clarinet, voices and vocals, music box, loops, electric guitar, bass, piano, and percussion all play prominent roles in the score and are a sight to behold when performed live by only four or five players! Nosferatu tells the story of Hutter and Ellen, a couple from the village of Wisborg. Hutter travels to Transylvania to sell a piece of property in Wisborg to Count Orlok. Hutter stays in Orlok’s castle only to learn that the Count is a vampire. Orlok purchases a house next to Hutter’s, locks Hutter in the castle, and travels to Wisborg. On the way, he manages to possess Hutter’s employer and Ellen and strike the village with an outbreak of the plague. Hutter rushes home to stop him before it’s too late. We encourage fans and attendees to dress for the Halloween season at these shows - even when it's not close to Halloween.

The Invincible Czars

Austin's Invincible Czars have made their mark by creating exceptionally original music: songs and instrumental pieces that are like four-to-five minute mini-symphonies chock full of memorable melodies, meticulous arrangements, dynamics, and humor. Their music fuses riff rock, classical/symphonic music, heavy metal, loungey grooves, odd meters, klezmer, country shuffles, punk rock and circusy polka. They draw from influences as disparate as Slint and Igor Stravinsky, Van Halen and Louis Armstrong, and The Melvins and Ween. The band applies the DIY attitude of post-punk groups like NoMeansNo and Fugazi to their musical explorations, resulting in a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.

In the past few years, they have also become known and lauded for their arrangements of classical works such as Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite and Mussorgsky's "A Night on Bald Mountain." They have also re-scored the Russian silent film Aelita, Queen of Mars and performed it live for Austin's Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas in July 2007 with guest vibraphonist Sarah Norris of Bee vs. Moth. Future silent film collaborations with the Alamo Drafthouse are in the works.
