Hearts Collective presents Mad Science March for Science after party April 22nd

On April 22nd, local creative group Hearts Collective returns with Mad Science, its most ambitious event yet. Expect eclectic, high energy music that keeps you dancing…and keeps you guessing.
Hearts Collective presents Mad Science, the unofficial March for Science after party

On April 22nd, local creative group Hearts Collective returns with Mad Science, its most ambitious event yet. Mad Science, located at A.I., is an innovative multimedia production designed to celebrate science and all those marching on its behalf. Up-and-coming D.C. DJs Fort Fairmont and Distrikt & Circle bring the local flavor in a wide variety of styles, with acclaimed producer Subset capping the night. Expect eclectic, high energy music that keeps you dancing…and keeps you guessing.

Mad Science aims to celebrate science by electrifying all of the senses. An unbelievable light show and full time VJ to integrate with the musical performances. An immersive virtual reality experience on the HTC Vive and body painting by D.C. Creators enhance the visual spectacle. A curated collection of specialty science and science fiction themed cocktails stimulate the taste buds and the imagination. At Mad Science, no sense is excluded from the fun.

Hearts Collective is an artistic community striving to promote collaborative group events, broaden musical horizons, and explore the intersection of art and technology. Veterans of Tropicalia, Backbar, and Flash, they are excited to be partnering with A.I. to put on this event. Dedicated to showcasing emergent technology, exploring the boundaries of electronic music, and creating unforgettable nights, Hearts Collective is proud to bring you Mad Science.

Looking for moss

This is a random question, but I remember reading something from the forum about a DC resident looking for moss to transplant to their yard. I think this was in the past 12 months, although I’ve searched both the forums and the blog, and can’t seem to find the post. I would also like to acquire some moss to transplant into my shaded, muddy, tiny backyard. Any leads on where I can get some? Should I just try to gather a small bit the next time I’m in the woods?

Renewing a license while under contract on a home

PoPvillers,

I need to renew my license at the end of the month but am currently under contract to purchase a home with a closing date set for the end of next month.

Can/should I attempt to renew the license at the DMV with my (potentially) new address? Or might there be a way to get a temporary license while I’m in limbo between homes?

Any advice or past examples would be greatly appreciated!

Noise at 14th and R NW?

Is anyone else tracking the consistent noise coming from the intersection of 14th and R NW? I live in one of the apartments facing the alley behind Sette Osteria and can hear the faint drone of what appears to be an HVAC system. I am having difficulty pinpointing exactly where the noise is coming from, however it seems to be originating from either the Northern Exchange building or The Aston. I’ve tried locating the management company for the Northern Exchange building with no success. Does anyone have any recommendations as to how to end this noise? It sounds like a dying car alarm that is constantly going off and I’m slowly losing my mind. I’ve already tried the DCRA route, but I know that will go absolutely nowhere. Any suggestions are most welcome!

Locksmith Recommendations

Does anyone have a recommendation for a locksmith? I’m buying a house in Trinidad and want to get it re-keyed after I close. I tried searching old posts but all I found was one from 2010. Thanks!

Missing King's Crown

The king’s crown I purchased for my 21st birthday in 2009 made it through the better part of my 20s, but after wearing it to a party on March 10th, I lost it and have been unsuccessful in finding it.

I’m reaching for help.

I lost the crown somewhere in the Park View/Petworth area. It may have been at a party on Irving, it may have been at DC Reynolds, it may have been on the street or in an Uber. Really, it could be anywhere.

It’s a dumb crown, honestly. It’s fake as hell, but it’s still pretty glamorous. It’s gold and has colored jewels in it. It’s kind of heavy considering how cheap it probably was to make. One other detail: it’s made for a huge head. My head is gigantic, and I bet most people can’t even wear it.

Anyway, I’ve worn it to many events over the years, and have found many opportunities when it’s come in handy. I love it so much. It was well worth the $30 I spent on it, and I will offer that as a reward to whoever found it. Otherwise, I’m going to have to buy a new crown with way less sentimental value.

If you have the crown or know where it is, please contact me.

Looking for shared metalworking space.

Hi Popville-

Since moving from Milwaukee, I’ve struggled to find an affordable shop space for metalwork – mostly making furniture and sculpture – some old bicycle stuff. It’s one thing I do miss. Love everything else about living in DC.

I wonder if there are other people in the same position in the District. I’ve looked into the maker spaces, but long for something a little bit more focused and with easier access. I’d love to find a few people willing to go in on a shared space, shared equipment and a little bit of spirit for collaborative or community projects. I’d be willing to devote time and resources to get the ball rolling if others are into it. Of course, if something already exists, I’d really appreciate any leads.

Thank You!
