Chrononaut: San Diego's First Steampunk Club Night

UPDATE! Pictures of the evening are now up! You can see them at Jerry's photosite and at RattMice's photos. Thank you for coming. We had a fantastic night.

Machina Fatalis is pleased to announce its most ambitious project to date. Our goal for nearly a year has been to create a uniquely steampunk club experience based on the precedent set by the Davenport sister’s Clockwork Ball and the musical influence of the Sepiachord group. Chrononaut is a club at which the gothic side of steampunk music is balanced by the whimsy of Dr Steel and Mr. B the Gentleman Rhymer and all is guided by the mash-up of old and new that is the soul of steampunk.
Now it is here.Opening night: Friday June 5th at
The 8teen Center
3925 Ohio St, San Diego, CA 92104

The club is open from 7:00 pm to 11:00 pm

More information is available on the Chrononaut myspace page. We hope to have nights in July and August also, but that depends entirely on advance sales for June.

Croquet Noir 2!

It was silly. It was fun. We have to do it again! Please join us on Friday, the 24th of April at 10:00 in the evening for a rousing round of croquet. We will meet in Heritage Park on the lawn at the far end of the park, adjacent The McConaughey House (map here). As there is no seating in this area, lawn blankets are encouraged. Feel free to bring small flashlights, black lights, comestibles and potables. Alcohol under 20% is allowed for those of age. As this is a county park, there is no closing hour. However, this is an urban location near homes, so please use manners as befit gentlemen and ladies. Steampunk, neo-Victorian, dark cabaret, or generally anachronistic clothing enthusiastically welcomed at this event. Please contact us via this blog or our email should you have any questions. Be there or my wife will beat me with a croquet mallet. What? You think I’m joking? Look at this picture. She’s dangerous!
