I have no idea which year this was. Even Wikipedia only lists the Hotkeyz as being on the market in the year “19xx.” Still, the fact that Wikipedia has a list of keytars is pretty amazing.
Anyway, if you’re anywhere near Columbus this weekend, you should come out to Independents’ Day 2010. There will be all sorts of awesome local art, craft, music, small business, and food stuff. I’ll be there with posters, buttons, bookmarks, and comics. Come say hi!
