DAVIS, CA – April 22nd 2018 – The Davis Makerspace presents an “Earth Day” repair cafe at its space in the Tim Spencer Alley, see: www.davismakerspace.org/about/location, on Sunday April 22nd from 11am to 8pm. A repair cafe is where people get together to help each other repair or improve an item you are having issues with. Our volunteers will provide help, while you research (lmgtfy, ifiit, youtube), and repair your item, with available tools and parts. The DMS has a selection of power and traditional hand tools, electronics tools, 3d printers, and a few other things. If you bring a 3d model software fle, such as an .stl fle, you should be able to print it either at or after the event. At past events we’ve seen things like, vacuums (conventional and robotic), portable air conditioning units, lamps, electronic pistol targets, computers, outdoor electrical cords, and arc welders. Repairing is a sustainable and conscious act that provides the benefits of education, environmental stewardship, and self reliance. With a little work you too, can do your part. Repairing things with others can be fun.

Gutenberg! The Musical! Is a two-man musical spoof about a pair of aspiring playwrights hoping to fulfill their Broadway dreams. The characters Bud and Doug sing all the songs and play all the roles in an attempt to pitch their questionable historical epic with manic enthusiasm to one of the producers in attendance. This story of 2 men, 1 piano, a bunch of hats, and a dream was developed by playwrights Scott Brown and Anthony King through the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre and was the first Off-Broadway transfer for the acclaimed UCBT company.
