Steampunks Invade Goth Night!

Centroid DockIt has often been said that Steampunk consists mainly of Goths who have discovered brown, and if you are in the Cincinnati area tomorrow night we invite you to join Airship Centroid’s event at Darkotica. Thursday night’s Darkotica at the nightclub The Dock is Cincinnati’s most prominent goth venue and actually played an important part in the formation of the League of Cincinnati Steampunks and thus the Symposium itself.

On July 3, 2008, Darkotica was the location of what might have been the very first Steampunk meetup in Cincinnati. In search of fellow Steampunks, I had scoured MySpace (yes, the days of MySpace) and arranged to meet a few at Darkotica. I recall clearly the major moment of meeting Guy Dillon and Tina Black in which Guy anticlimactically (but characteristic of his charming sarcasm) introduced me to Tina as “some guy from the internet.” Months later in October 2008 we formed the League of Cincinnati Steampunks, then in April 2012 we opened the Steampunk Empire Symposium, and now here we are, all great friends and six weeks away from year three of the Symposium.

The Steampunk Empire Symposium will be running a table at tomorrow’s Steampunk invasion of Darkotica, and we invite you come over and hang out for a while with “some guy from the internet” 🙂
