    JoCo and Paul and Storm are so full of win I can't even describe it. The JoCo show last year alone was worth the trip to PAX last year.

    I'm going to be a voice of distention and say I'm not thrilled that Freezepop is coming back but The OneUps got the shaft. I'm not particularly fond of Freezepop and there's a very good reason synth-pop died in the 80's (it only barely survived because it turned into House in the 90's). They're not very good live and their music is played really loud to cover that fact. This is coming from someone who was no more than four feet from any given member during their set last year.

    Personaly, and this is just me, I would trade Freezepop to have The OneUps back this year. On that note, i would like to express my enthuisasim that Paul & Storm are joining us this year.

    It's important to remember that a considerable amount of work goes into lining up bands, and that PA is now planning concerts for PAX East. So remember to bring up these negative points when they ask for feedback! (Because you're probably not going to be able to change the lineup for PAX 09)

  • nmolendanmolenda Registered User

    True, but there's always the possibility of adding a fresh local act to the bill, yea?

  • BigRedBigRed Seattle, WARegistered User regular

    Doubtful for PAX09.
    The only thing that anybody can do is offer suggestions for following PAX'es. Keep in mind they are just suggestions. PA ultimately decides on the bands.

    ok so can we expect more band announcements for this year?
    No offense, but so far this is a pretty weak band lineup IMO...

    I mean it's not terrible, but I'm not excited about any of the bands that are coming with the possible exception of MC frontalot and paul & storm.

    None of these bands are my type of music. Would be awsome to see a DJ type guy like Mike Relm though...
    Anamanaguchi sounds interesting too. I'm not familiar with their music but the previews on the PAX site sound awsome!

    No one disagreed, the point that was being made is that all the bands have been selected for PAX Prime ('09, at least), even if not every single one has been announced (which is what I believe is being said by the two Enforcers who have replied, unless I read something wrong.)

    Can we get some support to get The Megas at a future PAX? They've got one album out right now and are working on their second album, which will be based on Mega Man 3, which is due out by the end of 2009.

    Last year's PAX I only knew the lyrics to re your brains, but I loved the whole set and was hooked straight away. When I saw him in January, I knew the lyrics to [tiny]nearly[/tiny] every song.

    Anamanaguchi can lick my dinosauric balls. They suck, and I'm amazed that they got invited back this year. Last year, I heard them and walked out of the concert never to return. Encore?

    I totally dig Anamanaguchi and Freezepop...just not a big fan of them live. Granted, I did stay through all of Anamanaguchi's set--and just the first couple of songs for Freezepop...and then went back to the hotel to dowlo...purchase them from iTunes! :oops:

    Freezepop seemed to think they should play what felt like every song they knew. They played for far too long, and made the headliner set that night less great than it should have been, because I was too damned tired.

    More than any band ever, PAX should feature Blind Guardian based on the simple fact that they're epic beyond epic. Besides, they were just recently in a game.

    [Enforcers] are the fucking best.

    Meh, they play every year. And the One Ups are way cooler in my opinion. Showed up at my hotel room in '07 for the failed Sealab at Sealab Party: Part Deux. Thanks LuBu, and your silly sign. lol.

    Actually a lot of people showed up, but since Moe and BA/Recruit weren't there; and I was pretty nuts... I don't think anyone made it up to the hotel room. Except fucking Methos.

    Anyway, One Ups are fucking nice guys. As is Mr. Frontalot.

    Sacred 2... and dude... I would give my unborn children to see them. They love video games and are self-professed nerds... I can't imagine they would turn something like that down. Hell, they have an entire album about the Lord of the Rings.

    Well, I don't know how gamer-centric the aquabats are. But if MC Lars plays, the song This Gigantic Robot Kills (which is also the name of the new album), features MC Bat Commander and the Suburban Legends horn section. Though I'm sure they wont be there live. It's hardly even laptop rap anymore. It's iPhone rap. At the show here in Monterey with him, ytcracker, and Frontalot, the beats/videos (he projects videos on screens behind him at his shows), were played off of an iPhone.

    Am I the only one disappointed by no mention of Darkest of the Hillside Thickets yet? They totally rocked my socks, and is the album I listen to the most that I bought at PAX last year.

    Yeah, no, I totally agree. OMG. I totally loved the Darkest of the Hillside Thickets at PAX last year. They just totally ruled. :> I was really hoping to see them again this year.....

    So far I'm not to sad about the Line up. Yeah, I have to agree, I didn't like Anamanaguchi either. I found they really didnt mesh well with each other, and they rather annoyed me at the panel. So I'm not going to be to happy with them....

    However, I do enjoy freezepop since I love techno, and JoCo is one of the most AMAZING people out there. I saw Paul and Storm at the JoCo concert back in Jan, and I'm rather stoked to see them here as well. They are way entertaining. :>

    I dunno where else to post this to grab the attention of the PAX founders, but I thought maybe this is a good place to start.

    I know there are a lot of MC Chris fans out there eager to see him preform somewhere remotely close the NW, and why not at the best nerd following of all?? PAX!!


    The last time he preformed at PAX was in 2005 and it has been too long!

    Penny Arcade and MC Chris need to make up, kiss and bless us with a sweet sweet love child at PAX '09, if not PAX '10!
