GeekPicNic, a new international technology festival, will take place at Jerusalem’s Sacher Park April 25 to April 27. The festival, which was inaugurated a couple of years ago in Saint Petersburg, Russia, and is coming to Israel for the first time is a futuristic feast for the entire family – robots, virtual reality, stunning shows and unimaginable wonders of technology. Yet, listening to the story of cyborg drummer Jason Barnes of Atlanta, Georgia, who will participate in the festival, one realizes it is still all about us.
In January 2012, at the age of 22, Barnes was electrocuted in a workplace accident and as a result lost his right arm. By this time he had already played drums for seven years.
