June 8-10 The Brass Screw Confederacy~ Port Townsend WA
“Join us somewhere between 1891 and a time that yet may be for the Brass Screw Confederacy, a celebration of creative genius, weird science, good friends, and a big metal prop.
On June 8th a body of steampunks, Neo-Victorians, and sympathizers shall meet in the Victorian seaport of Port Townsend to celebrate humanity’s progress towards a more convivial world that embraces esoteric apparel, exotic equipment, and fantastical imaginations unconfined by trifles like physics and decorum. The Brass Screw Confederacy shall draw upon the assembled to discover to what mad heights in future events.”
Featuring performances by:
The Crow Quill Night Owls “a band that plays jug band, jazz, and string band music of the 1920′s and 1930′s. they were formed in 2007 by guitarist Kit “Stymee” Stovepipe and tenor banjoist Windy City Alex. they’ve since added Baylin Adahere on washtub bass. the group fluctuates from a duo to a six person band and often features members of other bands in similar genres.”

Girl Genius live ætherspeak broad cast “For the last few years, Studio Foglio has been performing Girl Genius “radio dramas” live at Science Fiction conventions and events in the Seattle area. These are done in the style of old-time radio productions, with all of us standing around the microphone doing our lines in front of an appreciative crowd. Recordings of these productions have been elusive until now, but some have actually been captured for posterity and you can now hear the results via the magic of podcasting!”
