After selling out the North Door in November with “Yakona,” Okkervil River keyboardist Justin Sherburn and his group Montopolis are back again with a new show, “The Return of Draw Egan: An Ennio Morricone Tribute.”

This silent western film has been rewritten Mystery Science Theater-style, replacing the old dialogue cards with an updated version that is gut-bustingly hilarious. Sherburn’s rock ‘n’ roll chamber orchestra will accompany the film, playing excerpts from Ennio Morricone’s classic spaghetti western soundtracks.

6 p.m. Sunday and March 8. $12. The North Door, 502 Brushy St. Facebook event.
