L.A. Edwardian Ball on Sunday (19 February 2012)

Our delightful San Francisco-based hosts won’t be making music at the Music Box this year, but in less than a month, Rosin Coven and Vau de Vire Society were able to resurrect the Los Angeles version. So get up in your steampunk goth glory and get to the ball at the Belasco Theater on 19 February 2012 (Sunday).

What should make this event even more dear to your smog-filled lungs and road-rage run hearts is that our hosts lost loads of money when the owners of the Music Box were “evicted and have effectively vanished.” Imagine that! The ball was, accorking to Justin Katz and Mike Gaines, one of 15 pre-booked and pre-paid events.

It took more than smelling salts to revive this night of dance, theater, shopping and music. According to Katz and Gaines, “We had an outpouring of support and suggestions for new venues – fortunately LA is full of beautiful, historic theaters, many of which could be perfect for our event. Some of the staff (not owners!) at The Music Box had good relationships with The Belasco Theater and were able to help us get in there on short notice.”

Of course, there are some residual problems due to the sudden change of date and location. Don’t most of us keep our dance cards filled? Katz and Gaines admitted, “We have lost some momentum and the entire situation is a bit confusing, but with the incredible lineup of performers and artists, and with so many friends and family supporting us in LA, we feel like we can more than make up for it with an incredible event. We can’t bring everyone from SF with us, but that’s the case no matter what… it’s the nature of taking the show on the road! In SF we have more than 120 cast/crew involved in the show.  For our Los Angeles, Belasco Theater adventure we’re bringing more than 50 amazingly talent SF artists with us… for a one night show, it’s not too much of a compromise we’d say!”

After such a rude Los Angeles speed bump in their plans, don’t we want to make Rosin Coven and Vau de Vire Society feel welcome? How are they feeling about us? “Cautiously optimistic.  This is a great event and we believe people will come around and still contribute to the unique experience we offer, regardless of the confusion!
Feeling Fantastic!  Our LA family and friends have rallied around efforts to overcome The Music Box shortfall and we feel immensely blessed to be offered such a beautiful venue in The Belasco Theater…it’s a perfectly fitting venue to house the grand spectacle that is The Edwardian Ball.”

Love to dress up? Then break out your finery. It is impossible to be overdressed and no one is so snobby they won’t allow the everyday wearing individuals a chance to mingle. After all, who knows what is under that shirt and tie–Mr. Humdrum or Mr. I’m mulling over murder in typical Edward Gorey fashion.
