If you’re a typophile with a musical bent, watch out for “The Beignets” — a randomly created Dixie/Blues duo providing an impromptu musical background during various TypeCon events. Feel like joining in? Bring your instrument along. Jim “Knuckles” Wasco (piano) and Steve “Fat Lip” Matteson (trumpet) would love to have you pull up a chair and jam. And tips or donations will be donated to SOTA.

And remember kids, lead type and tin ears don’t mix.
