Austin’s Invincible Czars—a high-spirited, 6-piece band that combines nightclub sensibility with nuanced composition and performance— announces the record-release festivities for their upcoming album 1812 Overture: “Olde Fashioned Independence Day Indoor Picnic & 1812 Overture Record Release & Concert”.
1812 Overture is the band’s fourth full-length album, modernizing and Austin-izing Tchaikovsky’s most bombastic work, which will be celebrated with old timey fanfare on July 1, 2012 at the Scottish Rite Theater.
The Olde Fashioned Independence Day Indoor Picnic will be a family-friendly event celebrating not only the 1812 Overture album release, but also the band’s affinity for culture in retrospect. The Sunday afternoon event will feature themed food and beverage, roaming performers, old-fashioned entertainment, classic cartoon shorts and oddities from the Museum of Natural and Artificial Ephemerata, et al. Guests are also invited to bring their own picnic blankets to the event.
