Have you tried contacting the Santa Clara City library? I know they have after hours events open to the public.

The Music Data Hackathon is being organized by Data Science London on a subset of the EMI Million Interview Dataset. This is a rich, newly released collection of market research on the tastes and listening habits of music fans all over the world (and it gave us an excuse to put a pretty girl on the front page, which Marketing assures me will drive participation) .  The Data will be made available 24 hours prior to the start of the comp (Friday, 1pm London time; Submissions open Saturday 1pm London time). There is also a Visualization Track, hosted on the Kaggle Prospect interface, for the data artists among you.
