WOO! OH YEAH! February Shows!

It's almost here singing robot aficionados! Our grand Clockwork Vaudeville show opens February 19th at the North Park Theatre in San Diego and you're not going to want to miss it! When best laid plans with a time machine go awry, the robots and their improbable cast of performers try and make their way back to the present in time for the show itself! Joining the robots on stage are a cavalcade of daring acrobats, dizzying jugglers, cunning contortionists, aerobatic aerialists, and a world famous knife thrower! The show is all-ages and you can click here for more information.

We also have a show February 12th at The Queen Bee's Art and Cultural Center, where we'll be playing with Abney Park and The Tragic Tantrum. It's entitled "A Night of Spectacular Amusements" and it's jam-packed with tons of steam punk entertainment, art, and...amusements! 

For all of you patrons looking for our acoustic shows at Balboa Park, you're in luck! We have one final Balboa Park show for the month of January where we'll be promoting our upcoming shows and busking for your hard earned dollar. Mark your calendars for January 30th and head on down from 2pm to 5pm for some toe tapping robot tunes.

Steam Powered Giraffe has a ton of shows in the upcoming months and we can't wait to unleash them upon all of you like a flood of molten hot liquid rock candy bursting forth from the confines of a decaying and failing concrete and peppermint stick dam! Stay tuned to our e-newsletters, website, Facebook page, and Twitter for all the latest SPG news!

Robots and Comedic Acrobats/Dancers!

The Platt Brothers are three real-life brothers whose comedic dance and acrobatics have taken them from local San Diego stages to tours across the US, and internationally broadcast television such as America's Got Talent, and the Chabad Telethon. Their self-titled show earned them "Best Live Comedy" in 2009, and "Best Family Entertainment" in 2010 by San Diego's A-List. You might already know this, but Steam Powered Giraffe took third place for "Best Live Comedy" in San Diego's A-List in 2009 and 2010 respectively, so it's only natural that The Platt Brothers would want to join forces with the robots and invite them to perform with them.

In their new show, Seven Days of Awesome, The Platt Brothers are joined by some of their most talented and entertaining friends to create a week of unique and unforgettable shows. From an Emmy award-winning storyteller to musical robots (that's us, Steam Powered Giraffe), every night features new and different performers alongside the hilarious and energetic Platt Brothers.

It's a year's worth of unforgettable entertainment, super-concentrated into Seven Days of Awesome! Steam Powered Giraffe will be performing with The Platt Brothers on Wednesday January 19th, so when you buy your tickets, make sure you purchase them for January 19th!

If you're really in the mood for entertainment, bring your ticket from either their Monday January 17th or their Tuesday January 18th show to our show, and you'll receive a special Steam Powered Giraffe Cavalcadium Robot Giraffe Button!

We've got a few Balboa Park shows this month, and we'll definitely be advertising, plugging, and raising awareness for The Platt Brothers show, so be sure to head on down, listen to some catchy robotic tunes and grab a flier for the show!

Next month sees the robots performing with Abney Park in one show and with circus performers in another. We've got a constant stream of San Diego shows for you musical robot enthusiasts out there, so stay tuned to our website, e-newsletter, Facebook, and Twitter for all the latest and greatest SPG news!
