I saw the Extraordinary Contraptions at my first Dragon*Con, when they serenaded those of us who were waiting in line to get into the Time Traveler’s Ball on Friday night.
SO STEAMPUNK am I right? The lead singer (WHOSE NAME IS SEPHORA, LIKE THE MAKEUP STORE, AMAZING/RIDICULOUS) is playing some sort of like combination of a piano and a recorder. Check out their Dragon*Con profile, they use phrases like “Dimension-spanning stories of steam and strife” and “aural anachronisms.” You probably know them from their “I’m on a Blimp” music video that, once, played four times in a row on Dragon*Con TV. FOUR TIMES IN A ROW:
So, The Extraordinary Contraptions are Atlanta-based, so props to Dragon*Con for supporting the local talent. Here is some more of their Steampunky music:
Is it just me, or are there a ton of Steampunk bands this year?
Anyways, talking points:
–Atlanta-based Steampunk band
—Lead singer named SEPHORA who plays a piano-recorder
–On a blimp.
One thumb up. They get points for nostalgic reasons!
