Max Schreck plays the title role in "Nosferatu."

Spooky Screening

Cornell Cinema will host a 100th-anniversary screening of F.W. Murnau’s legendary 1922 silent film “Nosferatu,” with an original score performed live by the Austin, Texas-based band The Invincible Czars.

“The first cinematic version of Bram Stoker’s ‘Dracula’ is still acclaimed as one of the most powerful films ever made. Murnau’s haunting masterpiece stars Max Shreck as the cursed count, and while all of the elements familiar from later Dracula movies are present—the fangs, the blood, the haunted castle—Murnau’s film is free of the cliches and melodrama. Instead, it offers a stark vision of the struggle between purity and evil, the living and the dead.

Invincible Czars.jpeg
Invincible Czars

“This special centenary screening of the film will be accompanied by the Austin-based The Invincible Czars performing their original score that incorporates parts of Bela Bartok's ‘Six Roumanian Folk Dances’ and utilizes looping, samples, and effects-laden vocals. The music is written for four players and includes electric guitar, bass, violin, keyboard, music box, synthesizer, bass clarinet, flute, glockenspiel, bass guitar, and all manner of percussion.”

Flyin’ Fingers

Pierre Bensusan returns to Trumansburg to showcase his dazzling guitar style. Described by the L.A. Times as "one of the most unique and brilliant acoustic guitar veterans in the world music scene today," Bensusan’s name “became synonymous with contemporary acoustic guitar genius, long before the terms New Age, New Acoustic Music, or World Music were invented. He has the ability to make a single guitar sound like an entire band as he brings the audience on a mesmerizing musical journey. And yet, Bensusan is more than what any musician or music lover expects from a guitarist. He is a composer as well as a bilingual and a brave improvisational vocalist, melding whistles and resonant low notes with something like his own scat technique.” Find out more here.

Cypress Hill.jpeg
Cypress Hill

Insane in the Brain

Legendary hiphop group Cypress Hill returns to central New York. “Three decades ago, B-Real, Sen Dog, and DJ Muggs sparked a trip that left popular culture stoned, stunned, and staggering in anticipation for more. Naming themselves after a local street in Los Angeles, Cypress Hill burst on the scene in ‘91 with the release of their self-titled debut album. Singles ‘How I Could Just Kill a Man’ and ‘The Phuncky Feel One’ became underground hits and the group’s pro-marijuana stance earned them many fans among the alt-rock community. Cypress Hill followed their debut with Black Sunday in the summer of ‘93, which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top 200, garnered three GRAMMY® Award nominations, and went 3X Platinum in the U.S. As a result, Cypress Hill became the first rap group to have two albums in the top 10 of the Billboard 200 charts at the same time and are the first Latino-American hip-hop group to achieve platinum and multi-platinum success.”

Jonathan Richman

Richman Returns

Jonathan Richman makes a welcome return to Ithaca, performing for the first time in a theater setting. One of rock’s most-beloved cult figures, Richman made his mark in the Modern Lovers in the early 1970s, and has since gone on to release a string of solo albums that showcase his inimitable lyrical and vocal style. He’ll be, as always, by drummer Tommy Larkins, for the show. Richman notes: “The music we’re doing now works well in quiet places like theaters and performing art centers. We still don’t use a program or a set list so we don’t know what we’ll do until we do it. Please do not expect old songs. Many singers my age do a retrospective; this show is not like that. It’s mostly stuff made up in the last 3 and 4 years. Some of the songs presented might be in different languages; this is not to be esoteric or clever, it’s because the different languages help me express different feelings sometimes. One last thing, my idea of a good show has nothing to do with applause. It’s about if all the songs I sang that night were ones that I felt.” Hear some of his music here!

Trauma Cat.jpeg

Cat Scratch Fever

Syracuse’s Trauma Cat will make its Ithaca debut at the Range, hot on the heels of releasing its latest album, “The Truth Doesn’t Live Here.” Self-described as “America’s sorriest ‘power’ trio” – at “once a superlative and a self-own befitting of the strange, tongue-in-cheek musicians at the group’s core,” Trauma Cat is “equal parts band and absurdist performance art troupe.” Co-fronted by guitarist Ralph Kojig and bassist Roman Pando with drummer Rutger DiBoyere, Trauma Cat’s sound “is the bastard child of Cake and Tool, or a modern American answer to XTC — a collage of art rock and progressive rock with shades of post-punk, shoegaze, and powerpop. Lyrically, Kojig’s and Pando’s songs often reflect on religion, death, and the internet.”
