Noisebridge 10 Year Anniversary Exhibition and Ball (saved for future reference)
Noisebridge has existed as a community of hackers for 10 years and has been providing cyber infrastructure for 9 years! During that time we've been example of good (and not so good) ways to be a Hackerspace, but we keep learning and hacking on.
- To celebrate, we're going to have a EXHIBITION weekend packed with as much, of what we have learned and worked on together, as possible; and will accentuate it in the middle with a big TIME TRAVEL themed BALL and fundraiser.
- The Exhibition will be September 9th and 10th.
- The TIME TRAVEL BALL will be the evening of September 9th.
- Please see the Schedule below for details
You are invited!
- All events are open to the public and donation based (no one turned away for lack of funds). You are invited to attend this Exhibition and Ball and celebrate with us. We’ll be setting up Noisebridge Hackerspace to display projects, have panels and presentations, share our stories, host classes and workshops, play games, play music, and party.
You can participate!
- All are also encouraged to participate, educate, and volunteer to make this event even more special. Bring friends, bring your projects, bring your skills, bring your plans, bring ideas you want to share.

Live Performances by:
Suyash Joshi aka Techillusionist - Technology and Magic combined and performed in new and exciting ways. Suyash Joshi is San Francisco based creative technologist who enjoys hacking on advance technology - IOT, VR, AR, Drones etc to create illusions and magical affects in his performances. He will be presenting a mix of old and new magic show for hackers and makers at the 10th ball evening.
LoveTech connects artists and communities around engaging experiences, leveraging fresh talent and cutting-edge innovation to expand the dimensions of human expression. We feature established artists pushing the boundaries of what’s possible, as well as emerging artists exploring new spaces in interactive media. RICH DDT is a live electronic music producer/performer, interactive installation designer, and event organizer who is passionately repurposing the latest technology to create an awe-inspiring, open and supportive environment for human connection.
History notes only a handful of artists who successfully pushed the limits - both with their music and with the design of their musical instruments. What Bach was to the keyboard and Hendrix was to the guitar, Moldover is to the controller. Disillusioned with “press play DJs”, Moldover fans eagerly welcome electronic music’s return to virtuosity, improvisation, and emotional authenticity. Dig deeper into Moldover’s world and you’ll uncover a subversive cultural icon who is jolting new life into physical media with “Playable Packaging”, sparking beautiful collaborations with his custom “Jamboxes”, and drawing wave after wave of followers with an open-source approach to sharing his methods and madness.
Imagining a sonic world that diverged from our own in 1991, Doctor Striker shreds and roars over heavy beats, guitar riffs, bass lines, and synth hooks. He brings the classical and punk worlds together with training and discipline to electronic pop to create a political, personal and incisively optimistic brand of music.
