The Aeronauts have a very brief Dragon*Con profile (what’s the deal with that y’all), so I’ll just quote it all here: “The Aeronauts were formed on an idea of creative a fun visual performance that equals their musical performance. Since formed in Nashville in ’08, they’ve grown in number of members, costumes, balloons, allies, and an even bigger number of fans. They want everyone to join in their adventure across the world and join in the fight against the boring!” I haven’t even Googled them yet, but I’m pretty sure they’re going to fall into the “Steampunk band” category.
Here’s a link to their Facebook page and yes, it does look like they are Steampunk, but I am loving the picture of them in normal clothes THANK YOU FOR NOT PUTTING YOURSELVES IN A BOX (and I totally love that one of the guys is in what looks like a paisley-print sarong).
I love costumes, and I love balloons, and adventures are pretty great too, so let us see if I will like their music:
That’s the song they wrote for Steampunk Boba Fett. I like it a lot but I’d like to more if they weren’t wearing Steampunk clothes. LET THE NASHVILLE BLUES/ROCK STAND ON ITS OWN MAN. LET IT STAND.
That’s the only other video of them that I could easily find–I also like that they have a female bassist.
Ungh, so many “Steampunk” bands y’all. Talking points:
–Steampunk band from Nashville…
–…Since they are from Nashville they have a good musical sound…
–…but they are still Steampunk…
–…but, hey, female bassist!
Eh, one thumb up. I wouldn’t seek them out, but if I stumbled into one of their sets I might stick around for a few songs.
