Recently some people at the Electric Maid, a community based art and music space located in the Takoma area of Washington, DC (located just over the state line from the adjacent Takoma Park, Maryland), have started a series of music jam sessions on the first and last Saturdays of the month from 4-6 p.m. The idea is that anyone with a musical instrument—no matter what level he/she is currently playing at—is invited to come and join in. Even if one doesn’t bring a musical instrument, there will be extras provided for that person to join in.

I was invited to this event recently and I was asked to shoot some video of some of the jam sessions and post it on YouTube. Here’s the result.

One of the people in the video, Phil Shapiro, has his own YouTube channel and Twitter where he talks about all kinds of issues, especially about open source software.
