Dan Kaufman of CrankMyChain is at it again. The biking videographer, musician, songwriter, transportation activist (he in Salem right now rallying against the CRC project), talk-show host, and general renaissance man is set to debut his latest project tomorrow night: Open Bike Night.
The idea, says Dan, is an event that's part poetry slam, part jam session, part film screening, and part social hour where a love (or curiosity) for bicycles is the common thread. Dan has been a part of the local bike scene for years, covering events from his Disco Trike and often broadcasting live to the web from the streets. He'll bring that same technology to Open Bike Night as the entire event will be broadcast live to the CrankMyChain YouTube channel.
