It’s a two-fer!

Not only does the May Swap Meet mark our two-year anniversary, but it also doubles as event co-host Sean’s retirement party. Yep, it’s goodbye working week, hello golf course (and poverty!).


About Swap Meet:
Swap Meet is a monthly gathering where you can come with your favorite music files and trade them with other physical human people. Then, holler along with the dulcet tones of handcrafted MIDI karaoke. It’s like the Internet, but with people and beer.


Some questions you might have and some answers we might have:

"Do I need to have an iPod to come?"
No. Many people come with hard drives, flash drives, or other alternate file storage devices/media.

"Must I swap files at all?"
No. You don’t have to swap to sing.

"Wait — must I sing?"
No. You don’t have to sing to swap. Indeed, you don’t have to sing or swap and you can still be powerfully entertained by the singing and the whatnot. (But beware the power of MIDI karaoke. Maybe you didn’t intend to sing Phil Collins…)


Please note:
According to recent legal decisions, inducing anyone to use physical space for the purpose of sharing music may render the space-time continuum illegal. Use the space-time continuum at your own risk.


Make Swap Meet your friend:
