16 Days to Dragon*Con: Band Profile, The Extraordinary Contraptions

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!
