If you happen to find yourself in San Francisco tomorrow, Friday February 5th, I must recommend an event which is sure to excite: Wonderland: A Tim Burton Ball at the DNA Lounge. A month before the release of Alice in Wonderland, this event promises to be one worth dressing up for and attending.
But perhaps the fact that this is Tim Burton ball isn’t enough for you. If you’re asking why I’m showing you an event clearly hosted by Goths, then let me highlight the evening’s main Performance: Abney Park!
This band is trailblazing the concept Steampunk music. They’ve got a fantastic sound, and they are entirely dedicated to the Steampunk subculture. Here’s a sample video of one of my favorite songs by them, Airship Pirate. Plus, you can take a look at their Steampunk influenced recording studio, which is nothing short of decadent.
Awesome. Don’t miss the chance to see these guys live!
A bit more about the ball: Tickets are available to pre-order for $16 at the DNA Lounge’s website if the pre-order stock hasn’t sold out. Otherwise, it’s $18 dollars at the door in a Tim Burton character costume, and $20 without a costume. Dancing lessons are just 5 dollars and include instruction into the Polka and the Jitterbug, which starts at 7:30 and goes until 9:30. This event is for all ages and lasts until 3 in the morning.
For those of you on Facebook, the event has its own page there as well. Check it out here.
As I am in Dallas, Texas, I fear I will not able to make the event, but for those who do, I’d love to hear about how it was!
