The Clockwork Vaudeville’s Carnivale Delirium II – This Friday!
A year ago this Friday, we here at Steampunk Chicago, decided to take a chance and produce the biggest show we’ve put together to date. We brought in talent such as The Squidling Brothers, The Show Devils, Hayley Jane and local Chicago brass band Environmental Encroachment for a show that became truly something to remember.
A year later, we’ve returned to do it again! This time we wanted to work more of a vaudeville angle, and thus we’ve booked Portland’s own Vagabond Opera to headline! On top of that we’ll also be featuring Veronique Chevalier of Los Angeles, Eerie Twilight of DC, the Dead Man’s Carnival of Milwaukee and local acts Candy Town, White City Rippers, Lula Houp Garou and our own Lords & Ladies DJs! To top it off we’ll have Glitter Guts to do photos and even a mustache contest with Jeremy of Do312.com and Ken of WeirdChicago.com!
The show promises to be a steampunk circus vaudeville extravaganza in the truest sense. As always, many in the crowd will be dressed in their steampunk finest, as being part of the show is always part of the fun! But don’t fear if you can’t think what to wear, we by no means is it require it, come as you are is the first rule of our events!

Theatre Bizarre – The Initiation – This Saturday!
One of the midwest’s great secrets, Theatre Bizarre (I believe now well over ten years running) a costume masquerade unlike any other, returns! Though they have, unfortunately, not yet been able to return to their own space on Detroit’s north side. They have taken over, and are poised to transform the Masonic Lodge of Detroit into something truly out of this world.
The gargantuan production features hours upon hours of every type of classic entertainment you can imagine. From wandering brass bands to circus sideshow feats to burlesque to DJs to… just about everything! What’s even more exciting than this? The Lords & Ladies DJs are performing!
Though what will probably actually excite you are some of the acts, including our friends, The Squidling Brothers, Hayley Jane and Mary Fuego. There will also be Nine Pound Hammer, DEADBOLT, Jawbone, Black Jack and the Carnies, Weird Sisters Circus and SO Much more!
The show is 21+, costumes are MANDATORY (yup) tickets are $65 – but well worth it!
Hope to see you Friday AND Saturday! This is a weekend not to be missed!
