The classroom was well equipped with 3D printers, soldering irons, spare electronics free for the hacking, computers, and large tables for working on. We taught our Contact Mic Workshop to a small, enthusiastic group of hackers. After everyone had finished their microphones, it was time to rock.
We set up our band equipment in the warehouse area. The hackers gathered 'round as we sang songs of Bourbon and Alien Conspiracy. Having sufficiently rocked the hackerspace, it was time to pack up, and get ready for a gig across town (at Quarter's Rock and Roll Palace). When we returned to the car, we noticed we had a flat tire. A few weeks earlier, we had jokingly remarked that the best place to have car trouble would be a hackerspace. The hackers were glad to help, and brought us tools to facilitate the tire change. a few minutes later, we were on the road, with our 33rd hackerspace under our belt.
