Absinthe Heroes comes to The Steampunk World’s Fair!

absinthe heroes 2015Jeff Mach, creator of The Geeky Kink Event, is Kickstarting his darkly humorous rock opera, “Absinthe Heroes” – and it’s coming to our other event, The Steampunk World’s Fair!
The Kickstarter is now live! You can find it at:


Absinthe Heroes is a propulsive, darkly humorous rock opera which both satirizes and celebrates the weird, wondrous world which is Steampunk. It’s got a gorgeous score by renowned Steampunk headliner Psyche Corporation, whose work has enthralled audiences all over the world. Absinthe Heroes has been described as “a riotous blending of the ridiculous and the sublime”; “mad science in theatrical form”, and “A Steampunk rollercoaster”.

Now, Absinthe Heroes is not inherently a lavish show. It can be done – and has been done – with production values as simple as a couple of goggles, a ray gun, and one Large And Mysterious Switch. But… Steampunk is capable of such glorious pomp and puffery, such dizzying heights of the divinely over-the-top pageantry! This is how we want Absinthe Heroes to spring to life. Harnessing the creative services of Circuit 6, which happens to grace the SPWF stages, and with the generosity of friends, family, and fellow Absinthe-lovers, we can make Absinthe Heroes an iconic piece of Steampunk history.

You can get tickets for $33 via the Kickstarter when it launches at 7 PM on November 15!
When the Kickstarter ends in December, tickets will be available through this website for $42.
