Video: Devil Music does "Dr. Jekyll," tours Europe


VIDEO: Devil Music, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (excerpt)

Boston's own DIY-art-punk group turned film-accompanists Devil Music started out playing basements, but since they began touring the silent-film circuit four years ago, they've taken to hitting big-time cultural institutions from Washington DC's John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts to the Museum of Fine Arts. Their next big step: a full-fledged European tour next month behind their brand-new score for the 1920 version of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, starring John Barrymore. DM leader Jonah Rapino is especially jazzed for the UK dates, since the film was shot in London, and he expects most denizens have never seen the rarely-screened reels. Regular Devil Music drummer Tim Nylander can't make the dates, but filling in is veteran percussionist Dan D'Errico, whom Phoenix readers will know as part of the fabled intellectual-party-music crew Beat Reasearch, where he performs as Kid Did alongside the award-winning DJ Flack and DJ C. D'Errico's also well known in Boston's world-music scene as the drummer in the BatukAxé and Samba Tremeterra Brazilian music groups. Here's the schedule; and look for a local performance of Jekyll and Hyde June 21 at the historic Regent Theatre in Arlington.
