Bonsoir e bienvenue a'Cabaret, mon Amis! Today we visit romantic Paris, France, for a sample of the new Parisian sound of Bal Musette.
It's the Record Cabaret's first visit abroad  and away from our US home, and while the long, rocking journey in the belly of a steamer was not the best of experiences for our new band, it was well worth it from the second we saw the French…Continue

Yet another American musical innovation? Bully! It's Jass Music, the newest sound to emerge from the south!
Welcome again, my friendly (and growing) listenership! Today the Record Cabaret visits the Jewel of the Delta, New Orleans, Louisiana, where a whole new sound is emerging, the sound of Jass. My friends in Chicago may have heard this new sound from the…Continue
Hello again, fans at home listening from your phonographs! Today the Record Cabaret is on a small little stretch of 28th Street in New York City between 5th and 6th avenues. The locals call it Tin Pan Alley.
It may not look like much, but this little stretch of road is home to a handful of publishers which are in this narrator's humble opinion, at the cutting edge of American…Continue

According to Steven Miller, Disney's Merchandise Communications Manager, we will be seeing official steampunk inspired Disney gear in 2013.
The designs for "The Mechanical Kingdom" were created by Disney Design Group artist Mike Sullivan in late 2009. Since then, his initial sketches…Continue
All good things must come to an end but not indefinitely. Although we suspended regular publication of the Gatehouse Gazette last year, we didn’t want 2012 to go by without at least one installment of the dieselpunk and steampunk magazine. So I proudly present our thickest issue to date: a 1940s themed special edition of the Gatehouse Gazette.
The magazine has a survey of…Continue
A fun project I've been working on with my fellow college alumni, Eric Freitas. If you don't know the Clockwork of Eric Freitas, you should check it out. Super impressive, laborious and beautiful aesthetic which often gets categorized under steampunk. So, at the end of this month Eric has a few time pieces headed to NYC in…Continue

Back in the 80's, Goth and Industrial were two separate genres, with two separate styles. They had different rhythms, different aesthetics and ostensibly nothing in common. Yet, somewhere, sometime, someone brought them together and created a Goth/Industrial club. The denizens were perhaps only united by their disdain for "normal society" and the materialistic and…Continue

Probably the best steam-powered car ever. Luxurious. Fast. Fuel-efficient. Terribly expensive. Extremely rare.
The Doble steamers of the 1920's were almost miracles of precision, workmanship, performance, reliability and power. They simply ran away from the best of the competition -- Cadillac's, Lincoln's, Packard's, Piercs-Arrows, Rolls Royce, or what have you.
As for durability and…Continue

Today, something modern for a change.
Modern, but not too hot, rather lukewarm - last year's news. I wonder why our German friends (and we've got some!) didn't bother to tell us about this loco when it was hot. Well, it's better later than never.Continue
Across the street from Value Village on 11th Avenue, tucked away next to Barca Lounge, is the newly opened steampunk themed restaurant known as Grim's. The restaurant offers both an ample menu for lunch and dinner, as well as a full bar for those who are so inclined.
One of the restaurant's most interesting aspects is the décor, which is fashioned after the sci-fi subculture of steampunk. The aesthetic tendencies of this subculture are fashioned after the industrialism of…

Behind the Grey Matter of The Grey Griffins
In the world of YA (Young Adult) fiction these days, you can't swing a sparkley vampire around without hitting some barely hidden teen erotica that would make any parent blush if they actually read it. Thankfully, Jon S Lewis and his Teen Titans of steampunk, The Grey Griffins can pull us out of…Continue
