InvadersIf you’re into the “Burning Man” scene then Cincinnati has Koipound: Invader/Invaded for you.

Join the Pound for a re-do of a favorite event! Dress as your favorite invader/ Invaded, bring a boffer weapon and prepare for a grudge match! Matches will take place outside in the Courtyard and be refereed for safety. Extra Boffer weapons might be available for use.

As usual please bring your own cup to drink from. The KoiPound does not typically keep cups on hand, they become garbage if disposable or something we have to deal with if not disposable.The Bar will be on site! Remember it is a gift bar. Bring a bottle to share with the bar or a case of beer. We always need Mixers and Ice, snacks are welcome too!

VOLTAIRE

In Carbondale, Illinois, the Southern Illinois Steampunk Society are hosting Aurelio Voltaire.

Aurelio Voltaire is often described as a modern day renaissance man. He is a singer/ performer, creator of comic books, animation and toys. An internationally touring musician, he is at the fore front of the Gothic, Steampunk and Dark Cabaret genres headlining some of the biggest horror, sci-fi and comic book conventions as well as Gothic and Steampunk festivals for nearly two decades.

His music can best be described as a collection of murder ballads, tongue-in-cheek exercises in the macabre, with just enough bawdy songs about Star Trek and Star Wars to keep a convention audience rolling in the aisles. Many know him for his songs “Brains!” and “Land of the Dead” from the Cartoon Network show The Grim Adventures of Billy And Mandy.

Voltaire’s live shows, whether solo or with his skeletal orchestra, are full of stories and games. Many describe his shows as sitting around a fire while an old friend regales you with tales, presuming that old friend drinks a liter of rum a night, dates zombie prostitutes and wrestles Krakens.

For 18+ Door open at 7:30pm. Q&A: 8:00pm. 30 minute intermission. Show: 9:30pm
