Richard Weiss has been making music and architecture in Austin for 30 years. He played 5 SXSW showcases, was an Austin Music Award’s Best Pop Band winner, fronts Austin’s premier Hedwig and the Angry Inch tribute band (The Sideways Grimace) and plays perfect albums live front-to-back (Van Halen, Radiohead, R.E.M.) with the band Recovering.
When he puts on his glasses, Weiss is the architect for Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, Kerbey Lane Cafe, the Collings Guitar Factory, the bathrooms at the Saxon Pub, and a multitude of projects that contribute to the fantastic fabric of our fair city.
In 2020, Richard started writing an album to celebrate his 50th year, and as time regressed, those songs became a different kind of project: a Superhero Musical. Welcome to 2020 combines monologues and music to chronicle the year that wasn’t. Our hero, STARKITECT, must battle forces of nature, forces of evil, and even his own psyche in order to save the…Day? The Year? The Future? Welcome to 2020!
