The Steampunk 12th Night

The Capitol Steam’s bimonthly salon falls very close to the Twelfth Night on the calendar. So put on your steampunk finest or your foolery wears and join us for another fine celebration.
Entertainment will be provided by steampunk DJ Van Helsteam along with special guest performances by Mistress Temperance Lovecraft and David Schneider of Pirates and Wenches will be doing guitar-singing Traditional music. Make sure to visit with our special guest, The Krampus portrayed by Mary Haderach of Mary’s Monstrosities. Steam Tactical Gear will also be returning so this is your chance to get those items you loved at the last event. And Candice Wilmore will be onsite with her camera.

So what was Twelfth Night? Well, in many ways, Twelfth Night and related Twelve Days customs were an annual catharsis of the community’s social tensions, frustrations and anxieties. The public dancing, drinking and street foolery all openly and profusely mocked established authority and normal social controls. It was a time for letting loose.

$5 admission at the door
As always, steampunk attire is suggested but not mandatory.
