The Refugees of Steampunk Music Extravaganza is an international gathering of Steampunk artists that will provide the seasoned convention-goer and the casual music-lover alike the chance to see some of the greatest Steampunk entertainment the world has to offer. The style and atmosphere of Roxy and Dukes’ stage is the perfect compliment to this wonderful line-up of performers!
A Halo Called Fred’s Geverand aka Adam Dickinson, the man behind the show explains, “The show grew out of a gathering of Steampunk performers who found themselves without a performance venue for the weekend when the Steampunk World’s Fair was unexpectedly cancelled. Immediately after the cancellation, several of the bands got together to ensure that the time and effort spent practicing had not been in vain, and put together this concert.”
Planned for Sunday afternoon, at a time when people would be checking out of the Piscataway Radisson who had previously booked for either the Steampunk World’s fair or the newly and independently formed COGS expo which has grown up in its place. This is the perfect event for the weekend steampunk looking for a grand finale to a Steampunk weekend, or to the casual music lover looking for a fun afternoon of music!
