Dieselpunks will not fall!

I need your help. Dieselpunks could be closed by Halloween, but you can keep it alive!

Since launching Dieselpunks in 2009 as a safe haven and inspiration for diesel and steampunk artists, we’ve become one of the largest and most active punk communities in the world. And now, over five years later, we’re going to be forced to close this community unless you can help.

The cost of covering our hosting and music licensing fees for 2014-2015 has exceeded what my paycheck can support. The solution is to raise the funds via Kickstarter.

Dieselpunks

Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

Hello everyone.  I'm Jonathan Grimm and I first heard of this site at last yearts Steampunk Worlds Fair where I was part of the staff.  I must admit I was overly glad to meet others who enjoyed the theme of steampunmk whilst not into the "neo-vic" scene too much.  To me the 1910's-1940's just had a certain appeal which has yet to be captured again. 

Ive always enjoyed big band and swing moreso than anyone else in my age catagory, kind feel as if I was born 80 years too late but I can't do much about that

 

Basically if Steampunk is the state where I'm from, Dieselpunk is the street I live on.

Glad to see you around, Mr. Grimm!

Will you be working at next year's SPWF?
That i will be. We have already began the planning meetings. Actually I was thinking of organizing a Dieselpunk meet up or a Dieselpunk party during it. Any ideas or suggestions?

lots of music and maybe someone who can teach the more inept of us a simple dance of the era :)

Swing dance, even basic moves, is incredibly hard to teach a large group in less than an hour. The instructors at Swing Goth do show a few steps during their events, but it's usually in one ear and out the other after the music stops.

I'm in touch with Whisper about the World's Fair, so we'll see what comes of it.
Thanks for the kind words. :-)

If you want Swing Goth to make an appearance, let me know and we'll try to work it out.

Best,
Brian

I did mention it to the Steampunks World's Fair people.

Maybe we should invest in ear corks! :-)

"There! That's how you do the Lindy Hop. I'm just going to put these corks in now to keep it from falling out of your heads. Okay, great! Get dancing! I SAID YOU CAN DANCE NOW. Oh boy... it's gonna be a long night."
