Steampunkery at The Columbia City Theater

Local musical steampunk purveyors, Abney Park, will play an all ages show Aug. 9 at The Columbia City Theater, 4916 Rainier Avenue South, Seattle. Tickets (on sale soon) will be $15 for the 21 and over crowd (full bar in effect), $7 for teenagers, and free for pre-teens. The show will include aerialists, fire breathers, a fashion show, and Steampunk artists and vendors. Abney Park will shoot a concert length DVD at the show.

Captain Robert says the venue has everything "we always dream about having for a show," including Victoriana: chandeliers, curtains, and a grand piano. Ladies and gents, the last Abney Park show in town at the Seattle Steampunk Soiree was, indeed, a smashing affair.

Steamcon, need we say, will be
Oct. 23-25, at the Seattle Airport Marriott. Special guests include Tim Powers, author of The Anubis Gates, winner of the 1983 Philip K. Dick Award and artist Paul Guinan, check out his history of Victorian era robots, and musicians Abney Park.
