The Czars of Awesome

Posted by on Jul 3, 2014

There is beauty in chaos. There is brilliance in absurdity. And when you least expect it, some of the most disparate sounds combine to create something bigger and broader than their individual parts. All of this, and more, is why The Invincible Czars are an Austin Music Minute favorite. There’s no category that they’ll conveniently fit into. You just have to listen to it to believe it.

The Czars have created some of the most original and ambitious musical pieces you’ll ever experience, covering such a broad range of styles and tastes that it’s almost unbelievable – classical, rock, country, polka, metal, punk and all odds and ends in between. And that’s only the surface. Dig deeper and you’ll discover mind-blowing musical arrangements and an extraordinary sense of melody that makes it all work so well.

All summer long, The Invincible Czars have a residency at The Carousel Lounge, 1110 E. 52nd St., on Thursday nights. Tonight is a special occasion; they’re asking fans to come see the show and be part of the video shoot for “Greyhound,” composed by Graham Reynolds and arranged by Czars guitarist Josh Robins. It looks like a wild and wonderful evening – and it’s free. No cover at the door. Go fourth and conquer, Czars and Czarinas. Recommended.
