Chrononaut Presents A Jule Festival

Tis the season of winter and celebration the fine folks of Chrononaut invite you to join us this Thursday to Queen Bee's for the return of Chrononaut, San Diego's premier Steampunk club night.

The Jule is a strange celebration. It's origins are Roman, Germanic, and Judeo-Christian all at once. Its purpose however is trans-cultural and interfaith: It's cold. We're sad. Let's make it better with a party. So from the steppes of Russia to the green hills of Ireland and beyond, it is celebrated by Christian, Pagan, and Jew in various ways. The Chrononaut way of course is a grand steampunk mash-up!

Highlighting the evening is a steampunk restyling of Tschakovsky's Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies as performed by Tasha Dabek. The night also features seasonal silent short films and of course J. S. Greyshade selecting music.

No Jule Festival could be complete without a gift exchange. Please bring a wrapped gift with an approximate value of five dollars or less to the club. It may be new, gently used, or even broken if the parts are really good and brassy. Among the gifts will be tickets to Les Voyages Extraordinaires at Queen Bees on February 12th, an Evening featuring the infamous musical airship pirates Abney Park. You must bring a gift for the exchange to have a chance to take home these tickets.
