Invincible Czars, Golden Arm Trio Christmas Show
If you are into frenzied, turn-of-the-20th-century riot-inducing Eastern European classical music with a twist, and if you like your Christmas tunes in the same format, this one is a no-brainer. Graham Reynolds' Golden Arm Trio (who recently scored Richard Linklater's A Scanner Darkly) is an Austin institution, brewing an odd potpourri of surrealist carnival jazz, percussive piano romps, and inside-out visceral takes on the classical idiom. The Invincible Czars are from the same camp, but with an odd polka-noir bent. They will be performing their own take on Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker, which they have done for three years now.
