31 Weeks until Symposium 2019

Posted on Posted in Symposium Update

There are 31 WEEKS until the Symposium . . . and here are a few new things!

Are you ready to Electro Swing?!

DJ Verminoid will be joining the International Steampunk Symposium this March to move your feet to the beat of Electro Swing!

Electro Swing is a music genre that combines the influence of vintage or modern swing and jazz mixed with house, hip hop, and EDM. Its music create a modern and dance-floor focused sound that is more readily accessible to the modern ear, but that also retains the energetic excitement of live brass and early swing recordings.

“The Professor of Pulse”, Louisville, Kentucky native DJ Verminoid is a member of the Speakeasy Electroswing network, and spearheads Electro Swing Louisville, the only recurring Electro Swing event in Louisville history. He has organized and performed at parties of multiple genres around Louisville, Lexington and Cincinnati, and has shared a stage with many regional and national DJs like Vourteque, Glitch Gatsby, Doctor Q, Sideshow, Stephen29, Count Grozny, Sodom, DJ Sketch, DJ Mudd and Silikon, and has done tons of regular work with Shawna the Dead, the Kalashnikov Clowns, Market for Mischief, and many other Louisville area promoters and performers from the Burlesque, Drag and Vaudeville scene.
