* The Clockwork Cabaret, and Davenport & Winkleperry: Steampunk-run Radio & Cafe


Yes, Virginia, there really is a show devoted exclusively to that elusive ODD-itory genre known as "Steampunk Music."

To paraphrase some of the verbiage from their website says:

"The Clockwork Cabaret is a weekly radio show hosted by the darling Davenport sisters, Emmett & Klaude, on WCOM 103.5 FM-LP in Chapel Hill/Carrboro, NC, every Monday at 11pm. And, you can call in to the show via the telephone at 919.929.9601.

The sisters play the "Music o' Gears" for Steampunk ears, an anachronistic style of music that will make you long for the days gone by. A wide assortment of jazz, blues, goth, folk, swing, gypsy punk, dark cabaret, classical and other related genres."

(I might add that they have even had the excellent taste to play "Vampire Surprise," by MADemoiselle Veronique on their Halloween Programme, entitled "Episode 92: Screaming Banshees of Halloween (aka It’s Spooktacular)."

What's more, in addition to the aforementioned wireless transmission, there is also a family business involved, Davenport & Winkleperry: Purveyors of Fine Art, Coffee, Tea & What-not

Imagine a space filled with art, coffee, books, live music and an in-house seamstress. Impossible? Located in quaint downtown Pittsboro, North Carolina, Davenport & Winkleperry, is a gallery and coffeehouse that offers all those extraordinary things along with other amusing oddities for your purchase, most with a hint of the Victorian aesthetic.

Address: 18A East Salisbury Street, Pittsboro, NC 27312
