Night Watch Paradox Concert
Night Watch Paradox is musically, lyrically and visually evocative and brings the sights and sounds of a world where steam-powered airships roam the skies and time travel is a recreational activity. A place where both men and women are equally capable, strong, intelligent and frequently mysterious. Imagine a talented collective of musicians, composers, and artists who bring these visions to life in a unique steampunk-inspired performance.
Night Watch Paradox lyrics pay homage to 19th Century Baltimore history, all while offering their own twists or alternative versions. Such examples are “The Admiral Fell” a song about a steam-powered airship that helps defeat the British Navy in the War of 1812, “Mobtown Riot” which tells the story of the Pratt Street Riots of 1861, and “Henry Clemm” which speculates about the mysterious death of Edgar Allen Poe’s young cousin.
The music itself draws from a wide variety of styles including rock, jazz, Americana, Appalachian, and Klezmer. With a lineup of electric and acoustic guitars, bass, drums, ukulele, flute, accordion, cello, and both female and male vocalists, Night Watch Paradox can easily evoke the proper mood from somber to frenzied exuberance. Tap your toes, clap and sing along!
Whether you are fully initiated in the steampunk genre or are a complete novice to the concept, Night Watch Paradox is guaranteed to provide an evening of memorable entertainment and fun. If you play your cards right, you may have experienced a “more cowbell” moment.
