Just in time for Halloween, this monster-packed event of Old One proportions features all 3 of steampunk's brightest stars -- Abney Park, Vernian Process & Unextraordinary Gentlemen -- on stage together for the first time!
Due to a profound belief that all must perish, C'thulhu does not discriminate based on longevity in years. (Which is to say, this event is ALL AGES). Buy your presale tickets ($18-23) now: http://www.dnalounge.com/calendar/2010/10.html#08.
With a Lovecraftian themed vignette by Shadow Circus, DJs MzSamantha, Femme Mystique and Skip! And... ***THIS JUST IN*** Unwoman will be sitting in with both Abney Park and Vernian Process! Also, this will be Vernian Process' record release party and their first show with the full new line-up.
C'thulhu themed costume contest prizes from Steve Jackson Games! Including Best Lovecraftian Costume (Male/Female), Best C'thulhu Themed Costume, and Best Non-Lovecraftian Monster (Male/Female) - this IS a Monster Mash after all!
The Old Ones, jealous of our past events (http://www.youtube.com/swinggoth), have sent plague*, fire**, and blizzard*** to stop us. So, this time we're inviting them.
"Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn!"
"Ia! Ia! Cthulhu fhtagn!"
"Cthulhu R'lyeh fhtagn!"
Only we have the cajones to hold C'thulhu's Balls... that is to say... You should come: http://www.dnalounge.com/calendar/2010/10.html#08
* Swing Goth's 2nd Anniversary was held the week that fear of SARS spread rampant across the country and whether out of hubris or chutzpah, we opened with Squirrel Nut Zippers' LaGrippa (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vEQYtmo3oiI)
** Our second large event, The Bowie Ball, had to be postponed because 30 foot flames erupted from underground (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8NZ3vkqkwaw)
*** The New York City edition of The Tim Burton Ball turned out to be on the eve of the "4th worst snow storm in New York history" (http://boyculture.typepad.com/boy_culture/2010/02/4th-worst-snow-storm-in-nyc-history.html)
