CANCELLED Tri = Third. Via = Way. Should we be suspicious?

Now needing to work late tonight - since no other attendees, I declare this event CANCELLED (waves scepter). Next week for sure.

Hello Seattle!

Hello Seattle! This is my first visit but I don't really know the area at all. I will be in town Aug 30th-Sept 4th and I'd love to meet some other MeFis, maybe whilst drinking some good beers or eating some good (vegetarian friendly) food in the process. Edit: after some discussion I had chosen Highline, but they added a show to their calendar on Sat 9/2 so that option is out. Let's meet up instead at The Stumbling Monk for some board games and beers at 8pm. I am also going to check out Plum Vegan Bistro before for dinner then walk over if anyone would like to join! (1429 12th Ave at 6:30ish).

Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator Training, Setup, and Gaming

I'd like to bring together a casual group to occasionally play Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator at my home (and possibly other venues). Since there's a learning curve to playing this cooperative spaceship bridge crew game, be prepared for some collaborative setup, burn-in, and waiting. But it's fun anyway! Come join me/us!

Sonascope—telling tales in Indianapolis

I’ll be performing a piece for spoken word and electronics on Sunday, 6 August 2017 at 2:30 PM as part of the 13th Annual Electro-Music Festival running from Friday, 4 August to Sunday, 6 August, 2017 at the Irving Theater in Indianapolis, Indiana [directions]. The entire weekend is a long-form celebration of electronic, electro-acoustic, and experimental music that runs the alphabetic gamut from the abrasively new to the zestfully soothing, with a three-day bill jam-packed with amazing musicians I’ve had the pleasure to work with and otherwise revel in for several years now. I’m bringing my combination of left-field storytelling and digital atmospherics to the party, and I get to spend the rest of the time enjoying and educating myself in how it’s done. It's a real bargain for anyone interested in music on/off the beaten path.
