Chill Out Time Again
News just breaking that the "Steampunks In Springtime" event which was destined to be staged by The Cornish Steampunks this weekend is off. Not sure if that is due to the impending bad weather forecast for The South West or other reasons. A sad loss all the same.
The cancellation leaves BB with the long drive for just the one show now. This is on Friday night in Ilfracombe.
An excellent opportunity though to catch BB playing with the delights of Lord Montague Jaques Fromage and his "Steampunk Funk Bizarre" in a UK one off.
The show is at "The Chill Bar" on Fore Street in the centre of town and gets under way at 8pm.
Next weekend BB are back in Derbyshire for a gig at The George and Dragon, Bridge Street in Belper on Friday the 17th.
That kicks off a busy weekend, with Saturday constituting another jaunt to The South West for "The Frome Steampunk Extravaganza".
This is a new event being staged at The Cheese and Grain in Frome's town centre, a building built in 1874, with the original use as a cheese and grain exchange.
The event hosts a daytime market running from 10am until 3pm. There will also be no less than four Steampunk authors on hand during the day and a tea duelling contest.
At 6.30pm the emphasis moves to the stage and a great line up with BB, the "chap hop" of Professor Elemental, the punkier overtones of The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing and the mellower mood of Sunday Driver along with The Dulcie Demure Burlesque Show and Muriel Lavender, Burlesque style poetrix.
