I’ve got a big PAX update for you today. First of all don’t forget this is the last week to get the early bird pre registration discount. Until March 31st you can get a three day pass for $40.
We’ve also updated the PAX site with this year’s band lineup. The concerts at PAX are always incredible and we’ve added some awesome new bands to the mix for 2007.
Frontalot is coming back for his fourth straight year. Penny Arcade’s rapper laureate and the face of Nerdcore hiphop.
Back for their third straight year at the show. The Neskimos have never failed to kick ass with their rock interpretations of old school game themes.
These guys have been with us since the beginning and they always put on an amazing show. They’ve also challenged us to ping pong match which tells me they have a death wish.
Here comes a new challenger!
This will be their first year at PAX but you’ve probably heard their tracks on Harmonix games like Guitar Hero, Amplitude, Frequency, and Karaoke revolution.
Folk rock about zombies and writing code? Oh yeah, this guy belongs at PAX.
I’m super excited to have these guys at our show this year. Please just go to their Myspace page and listen to Bossa De Link. That track will make you an instant fan.
I also talked to my friend Brad this morning. He’s the guy that runs the PAX theatre for us each year. He just finished a walkthrough of the new space at the Washington State convention center. We’ve got tons more space this year which means more lights more screens more everything. He told me that this year’s concerts are going to be “sickening”.
This is why we call PAX a game festival rather than a convention.
