Explaining to the uninitiated what Steampunk is can be difficult especially if theyve never played a Final Fantasy video game or watched anime. Basically, this fantasy subgenre is an alternate universe where steam engines power the machinery of the future and people dress like they were born in the 1800s. Throw in some spiky-haired effeminate brats with giant swords and youll get the idea.
Now, the promoters of Club X-Its infamous Electrolust night bring Steampunk alive the only way they know how. Steampunkd is an all out goth rave that combines technology, Victorian costumes, and lots of kinky sex. Youll be enamored by Electrolusts multiple dance floors and DJs, all while you admire the latex addicts and fetish freaks dressing to impress. Dont want to spill the adult version to your office co-workers when they ask What the hell is Steampunk? Stick with the safe geek answer.
The party goes from 9 p.m. to 4 a.m tonight and the first Friday of every month. Tickets cost $20 at the door, but you can pre-purchase them for half the cost. 18+ are welcome to watch, 21+ to swallow. Find Club X-It at 219 N. 21st Ave. in Hollywood. Visit myspace.com/electrolusthollywood or call 954-822-6350.
First Friday of every month, 9 p.m. Starts: Aug. 7. Continues through Dec. 31, 2009
