Science On Tap | 7:00 PM
Science on Tap is a science lecture series where you can sit back, enjoy a pint, and laugh while you learn. Listen to experts talk about the science in your neighborhood and around the world. You don’t have to be a science geek to have fun—all you need is a thirst for knowledge! more >>>
This Week in Science (TWIS) is a weekly web and radio talk-show presenting a humorous, often opinionated, and irreverent look at the week in science and technology. In each show, the hosts, Dr. Kiki Sanford (a neuroscientist), Justin Jackson (a car-salesman turned geneticist), and Blair Bazdarich (the zoologist), discuss the latest in cutting-edge science news on topics such as: genetic engineering, stem cells, human evolution, climate change, space exploration, neuroscience, microbiology, and show favorites – Countdown to World Robot Domination and Blair’s Animal Corner. more >>>
The PDX Broadsides have been playing music together since 2011. Accidentally formed as an a capella pirate shanty group, they soon branched out into their own original compositions. The Broadsides love things, and as a result many of their songs are about the things they love. Turns out those things are basically nerdy. They have been fortunate enough to be able to operate on only the money they make as a band, which is a pretty amazing concept.

The PDX Broadsides have played all around the West Coast at venues large and small. They’ve done conventions including OryCon (as musical guest of honor), GeekGirlCon, Rose City Comic Con, and GameStorm, or you may have seen them play in shows with The Doubleclicks, Marian Call, or Chamber Band.

Introducing the band:

Christian has been a comics journalist, a judge for the 2014 Eisner Awards, and a tech support engineer. He plays drums, listens to David Bowie, and acts as a pirate in PDXYAR, but is very bad at video games.

Jessica is a PhD student in biology with over 12 years of scientific research specializing in pregnancy, cervical cancer, and other women’s issues. When she’s not in the lab, she’s the fire-dancing, cannon-exploding shantymistress Greta of PDXYAR and the proud Caffeinatrix merchant of Black Blood of the Earth coffee to Portland residents. Skol!

Hollyanna is the author of the first and second edition of the Moon Portland guidebook. She is also a representative of the Alter Egos Society, a costume and prop fabrication organization, and a performer with the live music and fire dance troupe Fire Kraken. more >>>
