I changed the event listing on the Noisebridge main page, and also changed the wiki page for the event.  I made it more spiffy.  And then I contacted Laughing Squid -- hopefully they'll post it on their website.https://www.noisebridge.net/wiki/Art Best,Mitch.

It feels like limiting the length of the event is a good thing.  You can do whatever you want, but consolidating all of the awesome into a few hours is a sure way to host the event, while leaving the space available for regular use (classes, etc.) for those who just want to hack in peace.

So far, people are down to start demoing

so now that weve agreed on the date, whats the time slot? i like the idea of 1:00pm to 1:00am w/food & drinks till 4:00pm auction, music @ 6:00pm till whenever (1:00am) but that would require serious personnel.

It is welcome; just need to figure out how much space/time/anything else you'll need.

The 4 of us would like to perform. We'd need a space with some cleared floor, perhaps a conference room.

Other musicians and noise makers welcome to join in for a 2nd set.
Some word whether this is welcome and/or possible would be welcome,--

James & everyone else:

We are direly in need of a flyer. I will design one. (It'd be easier if I

could use a computer w/ Photoshop or other image design program, I

recently lost my Macbook & have no backup). James can you & everyone else

reading this please send me info for all bands/performers/other events or

item of interest that are confirmed for the 30th? (And is that the

definite, finalized date?) That needs to be on the flyer. If I get it

today I can probably have a draft flyer to show you (James) & whomever

else we're meeting with at 6pm Tuesday (before the general meeting @ NB).
