Alas, it appears the Steampunk social season will be concentrated in the New York City area this weekend, but for good reason! The Anachronism, Steampunk's iconic east coast venue, is presenting an outstanding event this Sunday, the 4th of December, from 3pm to midnight... as their official flyer states...
STEAMPUNK ANACHRONISM IV: DINOSAURS
Sunday, December 4th, 2011
3:00 PM to 12:00 AM at Webster Hall
125 East 11th Street, New York, NY
Tickets: $15 (door)
New York City’s most welcoming and overwhelmingly eclectic Steampunk event returns for a third engagement! We invite you to experience an as-yet, little-explored Steampunk crossover: dinosaurs. These thunder-lizards have captured the imagination of Verne, Wells, Doyle, and other prolific writers. But they have been unfortunately and inexplicably absent from most events – until now.
The Anachronism is an incredibly friendly event for people who like interesting music, Renfaires, geeky things, or other fun weirdness. Our launching point is mad Victorian fantasy - but we're open to anyone! Dress as you’d like, and just have fun.
Each Anachronism hosts about a dozen different performers, of various musical styles. Our headliners, Frenchy and the Punk (formerly The Gypsy Nomads), fuse live guitar looping, cheeky ballads, old-world inspired melodies, and tribal-march-style drum instrumentals – transporting the audience to a world of humor, theatricality, and bohemian spirit. Psyche Corporation is a musical experience combining art, fashion, dance, and science, within the framework of an imagined technomythological world. Their music spans genres – a recent song mixed tribal singing with classic piano while embedding the DNA of a deadly polio virus into its percussion. In keeping with our Jurassic themes, You Bred Raptors? will be making their Anachronism debut. Born somewhere between the Neolithic Era and the Industrial Revolution, this band of merry gentleman minstrel through the NYC subways with the Music Under New York Program. Local performer Danny Blu offers his dark, danceable and irresistibly sexy music. Baroque and Hungry covers more classical folk-rock. More performers are soon to be confirmed, but we aim to provide a variety of entertainment. The Anachronism offers something for everyone!
Amazing! Whimsical! Fun for all! Whether you love Steampunk or simply love grand good times, The Anachronism promises a lovely afternoon and evening of entertainments, shows, networking, running around like mad, sitting in one place and watching the world go by, drinking unusual absinthe cocktails, and generally enjoying a mad little fantasy world, surrounded by interesting and cool people. And raptors.
