About the film:
One of the silent era’s most influential masterpieces, Nosferatu’s eerie, gothic feel — and a chilling performance from Max Schreck as the vampire — set the template for the horror films that followed.
In this highly influential silent horror film, the mysterious Count Orlok (Max Schreck) summons Thomas Hutter (Gustav von Wangenheim) to his remote Transylvanian castle in the mountains. The eerie Orlok seeks to buy a house near Hutter and his wife, Ellen (Greta Schroeder). After Orlok reveals his vampire nature, Hutter struggles to escape the castle, knowing that Ellen is in grave danger. Meanwhile Orlok’s servant, Knock (Alexander Granach), prepares for his master to arrive at his new home.

“Brian Haas paints with his fingers. In a flurry, his joyful digits add color to 88 black and white keys. He plays with the assured abandon of an artist in complete control of his craft.” – Keyboard Magazine
Mike Dillon – How many artists can claim being praised a “punk rock provocateur,” “jazz vibraphone visionary” and “percussion virtuoso” in the same sentence? There’s only one: Mike Dillon. Whether through his affiliation with artists like Les Claypool, Brave Combo and Ani DiFranco, collaborations such as Garage A Trois, The Dead Kenny Gs and Critters Buggin or bands he’s fronted, including Billy Goat and Hairy Apes BMX, the Texas-native has set his own standard for 25 years now.
“When jazz hits you in the face with a stack of bricks, Mike Dillon is there…twisting chaos into order before turning it back on itself again.” –Splinters & Candy
James Singleton – Bassist/composer/bandleader James Singleton has been a top-tier musician in New Orleans for forty years playing in the bands of Professor Longhair, Dr. John and James Booker. He has also collaborated with international artists ranging from Joe Henderson to Dizzy Gillespie, Lightnin Hopkins to Linda Rondstadt. Currently he spends most of his energy composing, playing, and touring with his great friends in NOLATET and numerous other projects.
