ANNOUNCING FLORIDA’S FIRST STEAMPUNK CONVENTION
The first of a three-part convention series is scheduled at Daytona Beach
The Florida Steampunk Society will sponsor and host Florida’s first all-Steampunk convention April 13-15, 2012 in Daytona Beach.
Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction based on a Victorian vision of a future run by steam power and clockwork, where fantastical machines inspired by the likes of Jules Verne and H.G. Wells are commonplace. The literature has inspired an entire subculture and fashion, as well as an emerging musical scene.
Florida Steampunk Exhibition East will be a gathering of world-class and internationally-recognized artists, including the quintessential Steampunk band, Abney Park, the raucous and infectious sing-along stylings of the Bawdy Boys, and the unbridled energy of the one-of-a-kind performance artist, Perego LIVE!
Aside from performances, exhibition attendees will be invited to shop at the Merchant’s Grand Bizarre for Steampunk crafts, gear and more, attend breakout workshops on DIY gear, hear keynote speakers and authors, and enjoy the musicians, magicians, and mischief makers who will be wandering the hallways.
Other highlights include demonstrations by Airship Isabella, readings at the High Tea hosted by highly-acclaimed author O.M. Grey, the time-traveling Steampunk musical musings by Florida band, The Cog is Dead, and performances by Cupcake Burlesque.
Ticket and hotel information can be found at the Eventbrite website.
