Is steampunk a musical genre? Decide for yourself. The following is an announcement from ALTV for a Wellington event on 20th November 2010:
Don’t miss the first ALTV event in Wellington!
GENRES: 80s, electro, goth, indie, industrial, steampunk, synthpop
The events committee of the Wellington chapter of the Antipodean League of Temporal Voyagers are pleased to announce the inauguration of a new event in this fair city. Rogue will provide an introduction to the Leagues terpsichorean activities and promises an intimate, comfortable experience with cocktail specials and a particularly alternative and danceable soundtrack. If you are in or near Wellington, enjoy musical genres such as electro, 80s, synthpop, futurepop, industrial, goth, EBM and steampunk (though of course whether this actually exists as a musical genre is a matter of some debate), and would value an opportunity to shake out your steamy, goth and industrial finery, please consider joining us for the inaugural Rogue on November 20th, 2010. Entry is a mere $5. Those brave souls who survived All Hallows Eves harrowing Steampunks vs Zombies (www.steampunkvzombies.com) encounter might like to share their tales and display their sartorial and armourial splendour. We would certainly value the opportunity to raise a glass in your honour!
@Bodega, 101 Ghuznee St. 9pm. $5
