The Edwardian Ball

(the San Fran One) will feature:

Abney Park, Rasputina,
Jill Tracy, The Ghosts Project, Kinentic Steam Works,
Dark Garden, City Circus, Vima Dance, Rosin Coven, Vau De Vire Society,
Cirque Berzerk, Miz Margo, Delachaux, Agent Ribbons, Fou Fou Ha,
and a millioin billion other acts that are too small on this flyier for me to read!

Abney Park will be playing Friday Night with Rasputina.
It should be pretty over-the-top amazing, so go get tickets!

*sniff sniff* Is that a challenge I smell? There IS a toy store near by, you know...I'm the kind of doofus that would actually show up with a package of rings... *Robert starts worrying about the safety of his spikey hair* ;)

80's rubber bangles. Any $ store or Claire's. Would be very fun to watch/judge/score.

Abney Park/Rasputina is the primary playlist on my Ipod. *Grins* Too bad I'm on the wrong side of the pond for this....

I'll be there! Already have my weekend pass. What a lineup. You guys, Rasputina, Vau De Vire, Fou Ha Ha! I'm excited. :)

I bought mine on Saturday. It's worth the trip the weekend after school starts, especially since I missed Rasputina the last time they played SF... in the middle of the week. (I live 275 miles north of SF, a 6-hour drive through the forests.)

Will there be a redo on the airship venture? Seems otherwise would be a waste of a fine cigarette girl's display-tray-turned-keyboard-carrier.


As a veep o' marketing, I know your free ride would make for bargain PR, considering a one-time 6x3 ad buried inside the San Jose Mercury News runs for $5,400, yet the most they could charge your crew to ride is $2000 (4 @ couples rate + 1).

Meanwhile they'd be getting a music video in the deal, permanent coverage on YouTube and AbneyPark.com, and prime access to a targeted, airship-eager, affluent demographic (hello, $teampunkers drop hundreds on etsy shops). Plus, it's another opportunity for free press/TV news coverage and a press release for AV...a bonus since your planned ride didn't happen on the Eureka's maiden voyage, so it's a good hook on its own during an otherwise dry news spell.

(But screw that charging yours fans a higher ticket rate to come along, like they tried to pull the last time. Duh, we can read their web site too ya know.)

I hope to be there to see you off, Cap'n!

Do you think my kinetic airship team could find an angle that we could promote them at places like Burning Man as well as to the Emerald Triangle crowd at the kinetic race in Humboldt?

If you think you can make a case, you should wrote a proposal and run it past their Director of Marketing, Thomas Narozonick.

But I don't believe they fly out of the Bay Area though. The Zep NT requires a unique mooring set up and ground crew, none of whom wear neon furry leg warmers. :-)

Thanks for the contact info.

I know they only fly in the Bay Area, but one of my unstated assumptions is that people up here might be likelier to book an Airship Ventures flight on their next trip to SF if they knew more about AV.

Although we already have some major sponsors for machining, bike parts, and our workspace, we could also promote AV quite prominently.

For that matter, I would be very interested in promoting Abney Park, too. We'd love to play their music on the sculpture during the race (because we're all fans) and could probably raise money by auctioning off (donated) autographed CDs, T-shirts, etc. although I haven't gotten around to e-mailing them about that last part.

Holy Shit! I feel a road trip.

That's....... NOT FAIR!
I mean, I live in bloody Denmark *grrrrrrr*

One day I'll drill a tunnel from my part of Earth to yours, ehh...
