Sydney Padua:The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage

Wednesday, May 20, 2015 - 3:30pm

Ada Lovelace and Charles Babbage were two real and somewhat eccentric Victorians who conceived of the foundations for modern computing. Tonight on Inquiry we talk with SYDNEY PADUA, animator, special effects artists, comics writer and artist about her wonderful steam punk re-imagining of these geniuses THE THRILLING ADVENTURES OF LOVELACE AND BABBAGE: THE (MOSTLY) TRUE STORY OF THE FIRST COMPUTER. This is a book like no other: part thrilling fiction, part actual history and all wonderfully drawn and written. Bonus: Tune in and learn all about the cheese mite theory of the universe!


Blues, Swing, Rockabilly . . . and the occasional Tango. They’re BIG . . . for a little band. That’s what they’ve been told by disc jockeys, journalists, aficionados (and their management). Maybe it’s their music. Maybe it’s the water. Maybe it’s their imagination. But we don’t think so. Their credo — “Free your mind . . . your ass will follow.”

They are Jason Eisenberg (guitar/vocals), Emilie Faucher (vocals/percussion), Jodie Rachman (vocals/percussion), Al Garay (bass), Jon Golden (drums), and Jeff Box (harmonica).

British guitarist Jeff Purchon, who has played with some of rock’s greats, will be performing with his band — some of the area’s top musicians. They’ll be diving into some blues, rock and soul favorites. They will get you up on your feet and having a good time!
