Chrononaut presents Automatons and Alchemical Aberrations

Mad science and steampunk go hand in hand, and there is no more quintessential mad science activity than the blurring of the boundaries between the human and the artificial. With this in mind we present a grand exhibition celebrating the publication of a wondrous book penned by Dexter Palmer, The Dream of Perpetual Motion, telling the tale of prisoner aboard an airship crewed entirely by a clockwork creatures and a disembodied voice. We shall be giving away copies of the novel and posters.

Of course this is Chrononaut and no one expects you to sit about reading! Our headlining entertainment is a long overdue appearance by Colonel P. A. Walter I’s remarkable mechanical creations; the musical singing comedic troupe known collectively as Steam Powered Giraffe. They are either the most sophisticated fusion of steam and artificial intelligence technology produced in the late Victorian era or one of the most original musical and theatrical acts to be associated with the steampunk movement. You decide.

Opening for the mechanicals musicale are Elective Surgery, San Diego’s Repo! The Genetic Opera shadowcast who will demonstrate their art with a scene from the only musical film ever made about the horrors of overpriced internal organs.

Once again, we shall be exhibiting silent films featuring artificial creatures both horrible and fascinating. Our vendors have been working hard in their labs to bring you their own marvelous creations, and we will have music chosen by our own madman, Professor Greyshade.

Join us, Thursday, March 11th from 7 pm to 11 pm. Entry is $8 and is all ages, at Queen Bee's 3925 Ohio Street, San Diego, CA 92104  Chrononaut Club
