This weekend, Trophy Bikes owner Mike McGettigan’s nostalgic technology showcase will be back on display.
As part of DesignPhiladelphia this Saturday afternoon, owners of old equipment, like typewriters, cassette tape records, boom boxes and hi-fi cabinets will gather at Fergie’s Pub to show off their dated gear at Tape ‘N Type.
The event will feature a speed typing competition, and the chance to swap mixtapes, with a slew of prizes. RSVP here.
Last December, McGettigan launched his Type-in event at 30th St. Station, similar in scope. The new event calls back to the charm of audio equipment before compact discs and digital downloads.
Below, NewsWorks covers the Type-in.
