Airship piracy is an attractive option

VeenOperaHouse.jpg

I did mention Abney Park* played the Opera House last week? Images from the event are starting to appear on Flickr; here** and here, for example. Also featured was some local steamfashion (hat tip to Ragged Robin). I will not comment too closely on the above image. While I have been assured I am currently in violation of no temporal restraining orders it is best not to push one's luck in these matters lest a vortex open and the nice gentlemen arrive with the Odic generators and the butterfly nets and the taking away for assisting with inquiries. There are only so many times a soul can escape Bedlam without making a nuisance of oneself.

* I do not believe I have ever mentioned Abney Park Cemetery at the Flea. It is about two minutes further along the Number 73 bus route from my Islington home; close and consequently was a frequent dog walking destination. There are some Quaker connections besides. The last I saw the place it was in some disrepair... the first time I saw the place I managed to put a foot wrong and straight into some poor soul's not quite final resting place. Not an experience to be repeated. But I digress.
** Joe Szilvagyi is clearly a genius. These images are stunning.

I'm still kicking myself for not finding an excuse to escape to TO for the night...

I am sorry to report it was the best live performance I have seen in ages.
