The Velveteen Band loves playing in:
- Las Vegas
- Comic Book Conventions
- Free Events
- All Ages Shows
…and this one checks all of those boxes!
AND!! It’s at the Clark County Library, which is sort of incredible. We don’t have to be quiet there! They have two theaters. Does your library have two theaters? Just look at this theater!
We love comic books as much as the regular kind, and we love that this library is using comics to promote literacy. It’s fantastic to be a part of that.
It’s a short day, and we’re closing it out in the main theater from 3pm-4:30.
If that’s too early for you, we’re also playing at the afterparty:
The afterparty is also free, though you do have to be 21+ to get in.
If you saw us in the con, but your friends didn’t, you’ll have a few hours between shows to convince them to come out.
Anyway, here’s some links for you:
We’ll get a video up for you soon. Like us on Facebook or subscribe to our blog here to make sure you’re the first to see it.
Oxnard SteampunkFest posted their entertainment schedule!
We’ll be playing the main stage at 5:30pm, right after 50 Sticks of Dynamite!
Also, don’t miss Cirque Des Betes on the side stage! They’re amazing. (Noon and 2pm for them)
Here’s the official entertainment schedule for Sunday.
We’re on the main stage again at 2:30, after Opal Aura.
Don’t miss Abby and the Myth there, either. Abby’s an old friend of ours. Make her feel welcome! They’re on at noon.
And here’s a list of the vendors who’re gonna be there.
(The names aren’t terribly descriptive, and descriptions won’t do them justice; you really need to walk through each booth and see their work. My point in sharing this is simply that there’s a lot to see.)
That’s all we’ve got for right now. See you tomorrow!
Oxnard SteampunkFest was a huge surprise last year. As a first-year event, we didn’t expect much, but it turned out to be one of the best events we’ve ever played at. We’re so excited about its return this weekend — the team has cranked everything to eleven!
Here’s a sample of who else you’ll see there…
Special judges for the costume contest:
That’s not even getting into the 45 different vendor booths, or the creative work put forth by other attendees! Here’s a taste of that from last year:
Anyway, we hope you can make it. You’ll find a ton of info here!
