One year ago we opened our doors to you and most importantly you came. You came dressed to the 9s and became part of our monthly event. You saw and experienced the fantastic roster of award winning and incredible preformers, bands, artists and fashion designers. Without you we would be nothing and thus we now celebrate our one year anniversary by tossing the biggest and best party ever just for you, our beloved guests.
As always, the whole evening has been formulated like a fine elixir to amuse, tantalize and amaze you.
We are honored to have the exclusive release event for G. D. Falksen's debut novel “Blood In The Skies”, a fast-paced steampunk adventure story set in a world of excitement, danger, and aviation. Join Wing Commander Steele of the Commonwealth Air Force as she battles mysterious assassins and bloodthirsty pirates bent on delivering a doomsday weapon into the hands of a madman. Coming this summer from Wildside Press. Penned by G. D. Falksen fantastic illustrations by Jeni Hellum and other artist. We are lucky to offer you not only the first glance at this great book but also be privileged to hear a reading by the author done in a classic radioland performance style, a treat not to be missed.
With such incredible music acts as "This Way to the Egress!", whose debut album is out soon; and the immortal and world famous Voltaire, who will serenade you of the wonders of being Evil while masterfuly playing his guitar. You know these performers' talent and music, and now is your chance to see them at Dorian's Parlor.
We are honored and very fortunate to have fashion designer Anthony Canney, head of the design house The House of Canney, where the trends from history never looked so fresh.
