2D6 in Concert – Strap on your spats and lace ‘em tight to prepare for high-energy nerd-themed hip-hop with a lot of hyphenates!
The Beat, Dropped: Video Game Soundtracks – Come and hear us pontificate about video game soundtracks you haven’t been thinking about this year, and some that stay with us.
Filk for Techies – From “The Green Hills of Earth” by Robert Heinlein to Randall Munroe’s xkcd, techies have written jokes, poems, songs, and cartoons. Sing along with the “Open-PGP Polka”. If thirsty, learn pi to 15 digits. Bring us your favorite OLD funny, or just bring your NEUtrons, no extra charge.
Filking – Stay up and watch the bards come out! Friday and Saturday nights are given over to the music lovers. Join the circle… as a listener or a participant. This late-night event will last as long as there are people still singing.
How NOT to Host an Open Mic – Hostess Rachel Weisserman shares stories from events that should not be replicated and shares her lessons learned to help you hold the best jam session, open mic, or musical get together you can!
Howard Scrimgeour in Concert – Join master of the bodharan, Howard Scrimgeour, for an hour of song, story, and drumming.
Open Mic Session – Take your turn at the microphone on Friday and Saturday night, as Rachel Weisserman MCs evenings of open mic performances. Share your songs, poetry, or story-telling with us.
Performing for Introverts – You don’t have to be an raging extrovert to have fun performing in front of an audience. If you’re naturally a reserved person, this panel will help you find your inner ham… and help you enjoy it!
Songwriting Workshop – Learn how to set your story to music! This workshop will teach you the basics of what makes a good song and help you develop the skills to create one.
Tom Smith in Concert – Come listen to one of our favorite bards, and let him regale you with music in every genre EXCEPT boring.
