Some Steampunk news



Fellow Steampunks! I am so sorry to have been absent for such a period of time. As you can see I am now the subject of a Steampunk cartoon, playing the character known as Chaz Von Steam. It's been a wild ride the last two years with you, the fans, and all of the new friends I have made traveling abroad. Steamy Tech, Lost Boys Ragz, and Butterfly Frillies Corsets have come on board as sponsors of the Poplock Holmes live show. Matt Burke has joined me as DJ Wattson along side Aaron Bakker playing Shoveley McGee on lead shovel. What's next? Well, one song has been finished for the next album https://youtu.be/UIprwgY2ZeM and the search for the remaining wild beats is on. Stay tuned for new adventures, new music and new fun coming soon!!!!

New Music Video in progress.


     They say the cobblers kids go barefoot, true is the same of an artist working on a project for him/herself. Even though video production is my main bag, I haven't shot very many Poplock Holmes music videos. Well that is going to change! Here is a snap from a recent shoot at the home studio.



In the interim, here is a video I directed for the beautiful Unwoman - https://vimeo.com/119364706

Wild Wild West con 3


Steampunk cons get better every year. More wonderful people come out to play and bring with them wonderfully creative costumes and props. This year the Wild Wild West con put on in Tucson, Arizona was by far the most immersive and jolly good time I have had in years. Mixing what I love most about Sci Fi, historical re-enactment, a working film set and of course great entertainment. The Cog is Dead, Nathaniel Johnstone, Dino Staats, Steam Powered Giraffe and of course, the mad Professor Elemental were all incredible as always. I had the privilege to introduce Professor Elemental perform his set and we had a great conversation about classic hip hop, our influences and the future of Chap Hop. Brian Kessinger is super nice guy and he was always surrounded by lovely models, making his small respite in the courthouse a blessed sanctuary after preparing our stage outside. Speaking of which, we owned the blue wagon stage this year. Joined by a shovel wielding musician by the name of Shoveley McGee, we raised the bar, or lowered it, by including a Shovel turned into slide guitar in to our Chap Hop sets. We debuted the newest track Carousel and did a fun secret show at the Carousel in the park with the riders who were kicked off the Carousel in San Diego for which the song was written... So meta. So now it's 2014 and we are mid stream to a new album, playing a bunch of shows and looking forward to meeting new fans and sharing tales of joy!
 If you haven't been to a Steampunk event, stop what you are doing and find out where the nearest event is, hop on the train and get on it. 


Thank you Joshua Reed for the photo session and thank you Diana Givens for having us at the 3rd annual Wild Wild West con 3.

Steampunk Jam session


     I'm lumped into Chap Hop by default, but I like to think of my music as novelty music for Steampunks. Here is some music jammed in the hallway with Nathan Johnstone and Unwoman

And a gratuitous shot of the best fans ever Jeff and Lisa Vaca.
