A supergroup made up of Denver musicians with an annually rotating lineup, genre, name, and theme. Created for the purpose of playing the various events and conventions that are always happening around the Denver Metro Area. This year the band is called Clockwork Flamingo, and is a Steampunk themed Hair Metal band!
Clockwork Flamingo is made up of veteran Denver musicians Rivet D. Rivet (Necro Construct, Plasmacrash) on Vocals, the twin guitar attack of Sam “Sr. Swish” Sabbagh (Shanghai Sally) and Chaotic Weevil (Plasmacrash), Doodle (Plasmacrash) on Bass, and Jesse Walter (ex. Sarcophagus) on Drums.
Costuming is one of the aspects of Denver post-punk band, Dangerous Nonsense’s radical aesthetic, as every detail in their act refers to something in the world that they’d call “dangerous nonsense.” Their theatrics and unique and amazingly cohesive approach to their music will take you on a wild journey. Seeing them perform is more of an event than a concert.

He calls himself a piano rocker, but he’s really just kind of a goofball. Matthew has been playing the piano since age 5, discovered electronic music at 12, and made this stuff his career in 1999. Since then he’s played at the Grand Ole Opry, been quoted in Rolling Stone, and made a name for himself in new media circles. He’s been able to play piano rock full-time since 2007 and since then he’s never looked back.
People tell him that they’re fans because he writes some funny stuff, some emotionally charged stuff, and tends to experiment with his sound a lot. He’ll take their word for it, but you can find out for yourself by listening to the samples or buying an album. All we know is that he likes to get on stage and have a good time, getting the crowd involved whenever possible.
Keldari Station is a two piece live electronic space dub musical group. They use a combination of synthesizers, drum machines, effects, and samplers to make their music.
Their musical influences range from dub reggae to experimental electronic music to sixties psychedelic rock. Probably larger than their musical influences however, are the literary and movie/television influences. Keldari Station are science fiction addicts. Song titles such as “the Neutral Zone” and “Tardis’ Wake” or “Holodeck Vacation” are evidence to this obsession.
So if you listen closely for the subsonic bass of a synthesizer powered UFO/time machine, you may also learn the answer to the question “WHERE in the universe is Keldari Station”?

Rachel grew up in North Dallas, Texas. With the sarcastic humor of her father and clever, quick wit from her mother, she is trying to carve out her notch in the Denver/Boulder comedy scene. Lover of video games, sci-fi movies and TV shows of that persuasion, she enjoys being a fan of things and stuff and junk (generally). Her nerdcred runs all the way back to the early 80’s, so you can imagine the damage that wars and treks of stars and Nintendo may have done to her brain. Though catching her on video may be like trying to get bigfoot for an interview, you can catch any proof on her YouTube channel.
Hailing from Tokyo, Japan, Strange Artifact is a steampunk musical unit consisting of vocalist MaRy and bassist/composer 130JET. After forming in 2010, the duo took to the stage wearing steampunk-inspired outfits in an effort to introduce the subculture to Japanese audiences who, though familiar with the style through the works of Hayao Miyazaki and other famous Japanese artists, were unfamiliar with steampunk as a genre.
After performing at the internationally-renown Tokyo Design Festa as well as events hosted by underground subculture promoter Artism, Strange Artifact gained international attention through a crowdfunding campaign to support their debut album, The Antikythera Mechanism. In support of their first release, the band made first journey overseas to perform at the Steampunk World’s Fair in New Jersey.
Since then, Strange Artifact have also gained attention in Japan through their Poorman’s Gold Label, consisting of hand-made steampunk accessories. In addition to gracing the cover of Japan’s biggest English-language weekly Metropolis Magazine, the duo have appeared in the Steampunk Oriental Laboratory series of mooks as well as Artism Magazine.
MaRy and 130JET are both looking forward to their second trip to the US and can’t wait to meet the region’s steampunk enthusiasts, as well as share the stage with all of the talented performers that are appearing at AnomalyCon. See you in Denver!
