events that remind me of robots

first, i have to tell you this is for NYC. i dunno about robot things going on elsewhere. but if there’s an event that reminds you of robots and you’d like me to post it, please send it on and i will post it. oh, one more thing: POST IT!

Thursday, March 11, 2010 @8pm: dorkbotnyc is hosting “You’re Playing it Wrong” at the 92Y Tribeca.

a selection of historical and contemporary short videos and live performances featuring inappropriate, inadvisable and occasionally disastrous creative musical mayhem.

Friday, March 12, 2010 @7pm: Nerd Nite at the Galapagos Art Space. (via Flavorpill) Special note: this apparently follows Speed Dating for Fellas & Gals.

Nerd Nite; It’s Like the Discovery Channel with Beer. First, Kate Jones talks about Pi. It’s not just a non-terminating irrational number; it’s a way of life. Second, Paco from Math For American discusses, Mathematicians: Behind the Music. Go behind the scenes of the mathematician subculture. Finally, Ames Grawert makes The Legal Case for Gay Marriage. Grawert, a self-described “big city lawyer” (admission pending…) will make the argument, sure to be controversial in Brooklyn, that an honest reading of the Equal Protection Clause, history, and existing precedent would require state and federal authorities to recognize same-sex marriage rights.

Following speed dating and nerd nite, My Robot Friend, Alex Moulton & KINGDOM perform.

Alex Moulton will debut TRON:Suite – a reimagining of the score to the classic 1982 film, mixed live from rare synthesizer music of the early 80s and projected in widescreen glory.

Saturday, March 13, Graphic Heroes, Magic Monsters: Japanese Prints by Utagawa Kuniyoshi from the Arthur R. Miller Collection, at the Japan Society.

Tuesday, March 16 @8pm, The Asteroids Galaxy Tour performs at the Bowery Ballroom.

The Asteroids Galaxy Tour are musicians on a mission… dedicated to turning pop technicolour, making funk get down with folk and mixing old soul with psychedelia and spaced-out beats.

mark your calendars.
