The Invincible Czars make hard-to-categorize music for lovers of everything in the "other" category. They've evolved from a rag-tag art-rock group on Austin’s Red River scene to a reverse classical-crossover powerhouse playing clubs, theaters and universities all over the US. Their unique instrumentation, ambitious projects and variety of styles & influences attracts fans of Frank Zappa, Brave Combo, Faith No More and Danny Elfman. Musicianship, humor and experimentation abound. They also have a sweet wardrobe collection. Their whimsical, Austin-tacious version of Tchaikovsky's "Nutcracker Suite" became a Central Texas holiday tradition when it debuted on KUT FM in 2004. Since then, they've played nearly every major holiday event in the state. Lately, the band has been focused on its silent film work. They began scoring/accompanying silent films live at the original Alamo Drafthouse in the 00s. Touring coast to coast in the US and portions of Canada during 2016-17, they’ve come to be known as THE silent film accompaniment group from Texas featuring their own soundtracks to silent movies "Nosferatu," "Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde," and five others. In 2017 they had a weekly residency at the Alamo Ritz in Austin and were featured performers at the Seattle International Film Festival. Photo by Suzi Spies, Josh Robins.
