Country Brunchin’ gets down to our Spaghetti Western roots with the original Django and  Morricone Youth doing the live Pre-show performance.

Considered one of the most violent films of its time, Sergio Corbucci’s Django is all about revenge and being the ultimate bad-ass. Django, played by the striking Franco Nero, ominously carries a coffin behind his horse as he saves a woman named Maria from bandits, seeks revenge for his wife’s murder, and steals gold from a Mexican fort. The film is worth seeing alone for the cemetery gunfight scene involving Django using the cross of a deceased friend as a trigger substitute for his totally smashed hands.

Side note: check for Nero’s cameo in Django Unchained.

Morricone Youth is a New York City septet formed in 1999 dedicated to performing and recording old film and television soundtrack and library production music.
