Wickedfaire: Princeton, NJ, February 20-22, 2015

The world’s largest alternative (Steampunk-friendly!) indoor Renaissance Faire. (This show is for ages 16 and up)

After the box office closes, it’s time to beat away the day’s chaos with a fun, uninhibited group activity. Get in the groove and feel a sense of harmony as you reboot to the rhythm!

Bring your drum and join your host, Icebox! No past circle experience–or ability to keep a beat–necessary. Come for ten minutes or two hours. Spectators and dancers welcome!
In the Deulling Corridor Friday at 10:30 and Saturday at 11:00 (next to the Radisson Pool)

(And if you are a lucky early arrival – Drum Circle Thursday at 10:30 in the Radisson Courtyard!)

Behind Closed Doors: Victorian Sexuality

A late addition to our already jam-packed schedule!!

SNF21WOMVIC_280_622629aFriday, 10:00 PM-10:45  Pm
Centennial Room, Embassy Suites

Think the Victorians were repressed and proudly prude? Think again! While there may have been those chaste home-makers who covered the ‘limbs’ of their tables, there were just as many having the sort of sex lives to rival anything on HBO. Sit down with a USA Today bestselling, and award winning author (Kate Cross aka Kathryn Smith aka Kady Cross aka Kate Locke) and chat about those *naughty* Victorians. We’ll also look at art, prose and a ‘gadget’ from the period! Open discussion encouraged, questions welcome. kate

This will be followed 11:3o PM-12:15 AM with an Author Reading and Q&A session with author Kady Cross (aka Kathryn Smith aka Kady Cross aka Kate Locke)!



Tribecastan-hiresEven though there’s no easy way to describe the distinctive sound of TriBeCaStan, it hasn’t prevented people from trying! The Washington Post, for example, describes Tribecastan as sounding like “an international jazz and folk festival unto itself, fusing Balkan, Middle Eastern, Indian, Latin American, and African musical elements to bold and dazzling effect.” TimeOut New York tries it this way: “Downtown-loft improv with the odd trace of Appalachian blues? Yep. Cinematic fusion jazz filtered through a North African lens? Ditto. Multiculti urban folk music steeped in Balkan, Cajun, klezmer, Gypsy and classical Indian flavors? Absolutely.” This alchemy of genres is the perfect fit for a Steampunk fair!
