Electronica Fest: Saturday Sep 5

http://www.nem-electronicafest.com/, featuring a whole slew of Balimore/DC local artists and electronic-music instrument makers. (For instance, http://www.ciat-lonbarde.net/) It’s going to be good.

And for HacDC’s part, we’re putting on a build-your-own-simple-synth workshop. If you made it to the space last Thursday, you have a good idea of how it goes (and probably saw a variable resistor made out of grape soda and a pencil!). If not, come help out anyway, and we’ll show you the ropes. It’s a very basic setup, but there’s tons of room for creativity.

For the workshop crowd: gates open at 10am in Lithincum MD, which means our caravan needs to leave HacDC at 8:30am. If you’re able to drive, we have a few folks who need rides, so please swing by the space.

It’ll be a fun day, a good opportunity for community outreach, and volunteers get in free. Can’t beat that with a stick! See you all bright and early tomorrow morning.

And as if electronica-fest weren’t enough, if you’ve still got any residual electro-music hankerings, the Sonic Circuits pre-season opens up at Pyramid Atlantic later Saturday night. http://dc-soniccircuits.org/ for info. If you came to the Dave Vosh synth-toys demo/lecture at HacDC, you’ll note that he’s playing his real rig tomorrow night.
