SteamPunk Night at The Shelter – Tuesday October 19th

Published

Three bands in one night!

If you have never heard of SteamPunk or Alternative History, you must come out and see this! The costumes are fantastic!

You will be able to see these three bands tomorrow night:

Bitter Ruin are an explosive, theatrical acoustic duo with grasping lyrics filthy with energy and anger. Renowned for their intense and dramatic live performances, their audiences are mesmerized by Georgia’s vicious, complex vocals and are left desperate to hear more of Ben’s brutal vocal attack and cutting, jagged acoustic guitar. The dashing duo have been stirring things up in the UK music cauldron for the last two years, adding spice and new flavour to the gumbo of electronica, indie, acousti-pop and grime…so tuck right in as they’re not going to stop till you’ve gobbled your fill and you’re bellies are gorged.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Extraordinary Contraptions, musical darlings of Atlanta’s steampunk cultural hub, keep wowing crowds with their musical mastery, genre-defining anachronism, scientific-romance shenanigans and blatant refusal to take themselves or steampunk too seriously. Ranging from silly love songs through dark, seething explorations of power to their characters’ own epically orchestrated tales of victorian-influenced sci-fi, this quartet of aural anachronisms cranks the temporal bi-resonator to eleven for romance, music and science!  Equally renowned for their unplugged performances, their acoustic instruments are rumored to go to twelve!

 


Thimblerig Circus is made up of the last thee surviving members of the famous Moldavian circus of the same name. Having traveled from Moldavia to The America, Thimblerig is excited to share with The Americans everything there is to know about Moldavian tradition, particularly traditions involving juggling, fire-eating, and putting nails where nails shouldn’t go. They call Atlanta, Georgia their home-away-from-miserable-home, and can be seen performing all around in venues great and small!

Encore with Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call

With a link as inextricable as one the Final Fantasy series shares with its soundtracks, it’s no large wonder that the series ended up with a rhythm game spinoff in the form of 2012’s Theatrhythm Final Fantasy. After its critical and financial success, we were finally gifted to a sequel in the newly released Theathrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call. And although Square-Enix could have easily gotten away with making Curtain Call nothing more than a glorified expansion pack — after all, the original Theatrhythm shipped with about 70 songs on the cartridge, while its sequel boasts over 200, sans DLC — some rather significant changes were made to ensure that it improves on some of the original game’s flaws.
