Stay tuned for more Hadron the Collider news coming up in the next few weeks!
The Alt Post Anti-Folk Acoustic Rock Podcast Science band, Hadron the Collider, performs at Brooklyn’s The Way Station on Saturday, September 24, 9 PM.
You should come.
Born on Valentine’s Day, 1911, Dutch-American physician Willem J. Kolff headed the team that invented and tested the first artificial heart. The fake heart was put into a dog in December of 1957.
90 minutes later, the dog died.
But 30 years after that, in 1982, the very first artificial heart was implanted into a human being!
How fitting it is that a man born on Valentine’s Day, a day soaked in commercial superficiality and over-rippened for hackneyed cynicism, would be the same man that would invent an artificial heart, a device that has prolonged life of thousands, given each the ability to continue to love their family and friends just a little bit longer.
Hadron the Collider salutes Willem Kolff.
Come celebrate the artificial heart-maker, Willem J. Kolff, and the retaking of Valentine’s Day as a Day o’ Love, with Hadron the Collider at the Trash Bar on February 14th at 8 PM.
There will be music.
There will be drink.
There will be love.
