What is Science Hack Day?

Science Hack Day is a two-day-all-night event where anyone excited about making weird, silly or serious things with science comes together in the same physical space to see what they can prototype within 24 consecutive hours. Designers, developers, scientists and anyone who is excited about making things with science are welcome to attend – no experience in science or hacking is necessary, just an insatiable curiosity.

What do you get when you combine two sisters with a cat keyboard, nerdy lyrics, serious musical chops, and 30 cities?

Their next stop: July 19 at the Doug Fir with Danielle Ate the Sandwich, Barbara Holm, and Lucia Fasano! Doors open at 7:30 pm for a 8:00 show. 21+. Tickets are $10-12.

Tesla Deathray Survivors Anonymous (or, "TDSA" -- pronounced "Bamf!") is a support group for those who have suffered harm at the business end of a handheld electrical resonant transformer.


As it happens, it is also a band.  All music is written and performed by Willem Picklestotter (AKA Ben Fisher, a Portland, OR based comic book author and attorney).

How to Make a Musical Thriller

Take one unjustly imprisoned barber, now free and hell-bent on revenge. Blend in a diabolically entrepreneurial meat-pie vendor. Add one each of lecherous old judge, handsome young sailor, and beautiful daughter of the barber. Marinate with musical sophistication, then bake at a high emotional temperature for 2 ½ hours and stand back! Sung in English with projected English texts.
