Full Steam Ahead

Steampunk’s mashup of anachronism and science fiction throws a wrench in the cogs of throwaway culture

By Ethan Gilsdorf
Steampunk has been part of the cultural conversation for the past several years, as DIY-ers have embraced a handwrought, Steam Age aesthetic over high-tech gloss. Both a pop culture genre and an artistic movement, steampunk has its roots in 19th- and early-20th- century science fiction like Jules Verne's Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea and H.G. Wells' The Time Machine. Its fans reimagine the Industrial Revolution mashed-up with modern technology such as the computer. Dressing the part calls for corsets and lace-up boots for women, top hats and frock coats for men. Accessories include goggles, leather aviator caps and the occasional ray gun. And there's a hint of Sid Vicious and Mad Max in there, too.

Musical Buffet

By Patricia Sauthoff [ Fri Jun 4 2010 2:07 PM ]

I love it when people do what they love, not for fame or fortune, but just because it makes them happy. When what they love can be shared, it's even better.

This weekend Santa Fe musician rosS Hamlin (yes, he likes to capitalize his name funny, he's a quirky dude) launches a brand new music venue in the Fe with a festival of sound.

A little history: About a year ago Santa Fe's only independent record store had to shutter part of its business due to the death of the owner. Fortunately, the musical instrument part of the biz stayed around. That left a void for vinyl junkies but allowed Hamlin to take over part of the now empty building for his own purposes--to rock.

Now, just a few months after Hamlin got the wacky idea in his head, Little Wing is leaping from the nest. If you find yourself up north, please stop in. I plan to bounce in and out of of the fest all weekend and will kick myself if I miss J.A. Deane (an electronic music wizard), my pal Cole Wilson (a guy with a banjo strung with Christmas lights) and I Heart Metal (the not-so-secret musical alter ego of the Santa Fe Reporter's music critic Alex DeVore). There's a full set list here and the fun begins tonight at 5 p.m. and 2 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday.
