A WWDC-week tradition since 2012, the annual James Dempsey and the Breakpoints show is back once again for 2024!

We’re gearing up for a show during WWDC week that you will not want to miss. We’ve been working hard putting together an amazing evening of mingling, music, and laughs to benefit Techtonica.

Our musical band of nerds, geeks, and community luminaries come together from around the world to perform LIVE near WWDC. The show is a full concert of humorous, original, programming-oriented songs, including favorites from our iTunes chart-topping, #5 Billboard comedy album Backtrace.
