A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away ...
Ok, three years ago in a coffee shop not far from here, Pumping Station: One was just a dream in the heads of a bunch of DIYers who had no idea what they were in for. Come celebrate our 3 year anniversary!
Date: April 14
Time: 7pm - Demos and Reception; 10pm - Circuit bent music

Come check out the awesome hackerspace we've built and some of the cool projects we've made there, including:
