Jules Verne Fest tonight!
Well, this should be interesting... I've resisted augmenting the stagecraft aspect of the Steampunk version of C.O.G. for pretty its entire existence, hoping to avoid backbreaking exercises in last minute A/V spaghetti, networking, etc., but this time I simply couldn't resist.
Jules Verne is as Steampunk as it gets, and of course his contemporary Georges Méliès made the original science fiction film, 'Voyage to the Moon'... so what I've done for tonight's appearance is dusted off some of the best Georges Méliès films (or rather, stabilized, deflickered, and denoised them) and will be showing them while we perform at the Old Mint - one of our most prestigious appearances ever! We'll also be introducing our new trumpet player Jenevieve. Should be a fun evening! I hope it is well attended and appreciated...
