Paul Freedman (aka Fossil Fool) will be providing musical entertainment at Maker Faire via human-powered bike-stage!

In case you’re not up, Fossil Fool is a bike rapper –

A bike rapper is like a regular rapper, but instead of showing up in a car and rapping about cars, I show up on bike, and rap about bikes. My bike is a Soul Cycle, which means I bring my own amplification with me. When the moment is right, I reach behind me into one of the Soul Cycle’s pockets, pull out a wireless microphone, and start flowing to the music. It takes me no time to set up, and no time to tear down.
