SPG Show Near Comic Con!

San Diego's original singing robot comedy act is winding up for a new show Thursday, July 22nd. The week of Comic Con!

The quartet of quirky robots are joined by one-man-band Michael Reed of The Smart Brothers as they weave a laugh-out-loud colorful performance imbued with pantomime illusion and folk inspired songs.

Opening for the robots are the local Harry Potter band Rumbledore,
which will be followed by a live art showdown by SPG members Jon Sprague and Christopher Bennett, as they race to paint portraits of lucky raffle winners.

There will be prizes to win via Raffle, Steam Powered Giraffe merchandise for sale, and a tournament of the SPG Card Game.


6:30 PM: Steam Powered Giraffe: The Card Game Tournament
Doors open at 6:30 PM for TCG tournament. If you are participating make sure to arrive on time!

7:30 PM: Rumbledore
8:15 PM: LIVE Art Battle
9:00 PM: Steam Powered Giraffe

Also, if you don't already know, we recently launched our Official Steam Powered Giraffe Fan Club, The Cavalcadium. It features some interesting lore behind the world of Steam Powered Giraffe and other fun things. Feel free to sign up for the forums, as well as submit a Cavalcadium Member application!

We have quite a few free Balboa Park shows this month, so there are plenty of opportunities to see the singing musical automatons perform!

The Cavalcadium!

Kazooks! We're happy to announce the unveiling of SPG's official fan club, The Cavalcadium of Peter Walter, which took place at FACEMELTAPALOOZA April 30th.
Peter Walter, the current caretaker of the steam powered robots, has created a community for fans to meet, be creative, and help promote SPG.
The website has a fully functioning forum with a built in chat system, promotional material for you to use, and a budding Lore section exploring the intricacies of the SPG universe.

Stop on by and register on the forums.
And if you want to join the fan club, click the 'Join' button at the top to submit your application!

May means Vegas for the robots, and you'll find them performing at the First Friday Art Festival May 7th somewhere in the gigantic span of twenty blocks with over 100 performers! The festivities last from 6 PM - 10 PM. We also have several Free Balboa Park performances this month, including one on Mother's Day!

FACEMELTAPALOOZA was a wonderful success with the use of better audio equipment, the first live performance of Not Alone, and SPG's new song, Fabricated Blue. We'd like to thank all who attended and donated. The results can be seen on the Airplane Fund Meter. We'd like to encourage you to donate if you haven't. Every cent counts, and if you have a proposal for a paid show or gig for us, that's even better, as work is always preferred. Thank you so much for all the support so far! Have a wonderful May!
