The Extraordinary Contraptions set to kick-off Atlanta's TIME LORD PARTY II on June 12th at The Masquerade

The near sold-out TIME LORD PARTY crowd loved these guys last year so much we asked them back for an encore performance! But take note, they take the stage at 9:30pm so GET THERE EARLY!

The Extraordinary Contraptions were formed in the Summer of 2007 by four geeks with an interest in epic storytelling and more musical chops than are usually allowed in a rock band. After some experimentation, they came home to the Atlanta steampunk scene where they developed their musical ideas into an all-encompassing storytelling form.

The Extraordinary Contraptions combine any and everything their creativity fancies in the service of spinning their yarns of scientific romance and gaslight fantasy. Three albums and an unexpected drummer later, the Contraptions are hitting their stride as they set their sights on bigger, more ambitious artistic endeavors. Become a fan of theirs via Facebook.com/theextraordinarycontraptions

TIME LORD PARTY II producer Markster Con is excited to announce that this unique group will be taking the stage at 9:30pm (with doors opening at 9pm) so make sure to arrive early and be sure and stick around after their set as we'll have more entertainment and wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey dance music to keep your TARDIS seeking bodies moving till 3am with DJ Seraph and DJP. (NOTE: set-time at 9:30pm)

Advanced tickets still available via http://mcp.xorbia.com — please join the Facebook event page by clicking HERE.
