Third Thursday: Steampunk Extravaganza

Via Wikipedia

Everyone knows someone who is at least a little preoccupied with the aesthetic that is steampunk. You know ... basically like someone's wearing a cotton gin as a headpiece. It's a style and subculture that has seen its fair share of admirers, and said group of folks will be convening at the Third Thursday: Steampunk Extravaganza at the Albuquerque Museum (2000 Mountain NW) on May 21 from 5pm to 8:30pm. As the description for the event says, it's time to “put on your Victorian finest,” and partake in a night of steampunk music, videos and an assortment of performances. It's also hosted by the Albuquerque Steampunk Society, so you know you'll get your money's worth. Not that you have to worry about that because the event is completely free. It's also in conjunction with the Red Gadgets exhibit at the museum, so you get art, music and cool clothing for nothing. Don't you just love this friggin city?!
