Steam Powered Giraffe Scheduled Autograph Sessions

Every event is different. But Scheduled Autograph Sessions are usually pretty similar! Chances are- if you see a line and some sort of table, these helpful rules apply

We’re excited you want to see the band, and believe us, they are too!
But autograph lines have a tendency to get very long and we want to make sure everyone gets an opportunity to meet the band and get their stuff signed!

You can help us help you by keeping the following things in mind:

-No photos
There’s only so much time to make sure everyone gets to see the band. As you can see, the tables are cumbersome and staging photos at this time bogs down the line progression!
The band doesn’t mind taking photos, but only during a designated photo op or when they aren’t currently doing an event.

-No hugs
Nobody likes playing favorites. And its not fair that other people in line won’t get hugs because we run out of time! The band does love hugs though, just catch them at a different time!

Remember to consider your fellow SPG lover behind you. The band makes every effort during an event to meet the fans, but sometimes we only have a little time!

We thank you for taking the time to meet us and for your patience and generosity!

Concert is 10pm on Saturday the 18th, in the Midway Grand Tent immediately following the “Centennial Exhibition Ball!”
When the World’s Fair started, there were many great Steampunk conventions, but few festivals. The Steampunk World’s Fair were one of the first Steampunk festivals in the world and they remain one of very few festivals – and, perhaps, the best.
What might make this one the best?  It’s not simply the fact that they are, arguably, the largest event of this kind – but they are filling two hotels with an unbelievable amount of entertainment! Both the Radisson and the Embassy Suites in Piscataway New Jersey.

Get SPG To New Jersey!

You can now track the progress with this widget. Spread the word!


The fans have spoken. I can’t count the e-mails- but once we received a monetary donation from the fans pushing for an east coast performance, we felt we needed to make it happen sooner rather than later.

That’s the power of The Cavalcadium I expect!

May 17-19th, 2013 in Piscataway, New Jersey is the Steampunk World’s Fair convention. We’ve been wanting to attend for the past few years, but the organizers didn’t have the funds to fly us out there and perform.

The ten grand we raised to launch our 2-Cent Show Tour was made good use of getting us to Dearborn, Michigan and is buffering out the costs for our future shows in Texas, Colorado, Tuscon, and (hopefully) San Jose.

Keep in mind this money was used for touring alone, and didn’t fund paying all our guys. The majority of us don’t even have other jobs, and most merchandise sales and Engineer-eteer donations go towards makeup, gear, costumes, and other business expenses. That’s currently how we can do what we do- because of the active role the fans take in making sure the company stays afloat!

It’s expensive to do what we do, which is why we’re unable to play many smaller venues outside of California. By the time you get the cost of the airline trip accounted for and hotel stay, you’re looking at well over a few grand just to get us out there- let alone rent the equipment necessary for us to play.

So we’re going to try something here. We’re going to let the fans decide where we play next. You guys wanted New Jersey, so we’ll see if there’s enough interest. The last World’s Fair had roughly 4,000 attendees. If everyone just tossed in a dollar…we’d make it no problem!

But we need to raise roughly 2 grand to make this happen.

If the attendees don’t want us there- we won’t be wasting anyone’s time or money.

But if you want to see us live in concert- here’s your chance, east coast fans! We’ve got a lot of time to make this happen, so I’m fairly confident we can raise the funds.

If you donate, please note- if for some reason we don’t raise enough or raise over our goal- the donations will be used to fund other opportunities on the east coast in the future!

Take care everyone, and thank-you for being so damn awesome!
Crossing our fingers!

Love,
Bunny Bennett
