Hot music, plus a little vaudevillian hokum from Billy Murray and some good old-fashioned song-belting from Sophie Tucker.

Jazz Age Style's 1920s festival in Northeast Philadelphia will be on Saturday from 11:00am - 5:00pm. We've assembled a great show for everyone.

I never really thought that this fantastic site would go away, but I was a bit worried about it... weren't you, friends? But an "angel" (in the showbiz sense of the word) appeared at the last moment, and now all is well once again.
I got a couple of messages asking me where the Picks could be found if Dieselpunks vanished into the digital Great Beyond. Well, you can always find it with your favorite search engine, just by typing in "Pilsner's Picks." However, now you won't…
I've recently ran across a nice mobile game Redcon , that depicts war between the Empire and Traitors in a rather dieselpunk fashion.
Basically, you command the Fortress with several gas-mask wielding grunts, fine-tuning its weapons and facilities to meet misson demands and targetting relevant parts of…Continue
