Friday Night (in no particular order)
MC Frontalot
Bit Brigade
The Videogame Pianist

Saturday Night (in no particular order)
Super Guitar Bros
Triforce Quartet
The OneUps

Who are you most looking forward to seeing? Personally I'm super thrilled that The OneUps are FINALLY coming back after having not played a PAX since 2008. I've made friends with those guys over the years (as well as Bit Brigade, Super Guitar Bros and Triforce Quartet) thanks to MAGFest, but it makes me so happy to see them all here.

    I'm rather sad 7bit Hero isn't back at Prime. :(

    Seems solid, though. If not a little heavy on the cover bands...

    Can we get the chemicals in. 'Cause anything's better than this.

    What venue does this occur? Is there a minimum age?

    Concerts are held in our Main Theater at Benaroya Hall.

    The only requirement is a valid badge for that day.

    Excited to see Triforce Quartet again! And I'll finally get to see VG Pianist. I remember watching his blindfolded Mario Melody on Google Video. Not Youtube, Google Video.

    Good line up .But i dont like the Benaroya Hall. It is way too far. I know there is a shuttle bus to Benaroya Hall. But it does not run after the Concerts .I walk with a cane and last year it took me 40 min to walk back to the sheraton . I hope this year they run a shuttle bus after the concerts

    Hire an Uber driver! We used one last year to get back from the H.P. Pubcraft Lovecrawl, and it was only $15 with a first-time-user discount, compared to the taxi we paid to get there in the first place for $30!

    Why isn't there any concerts on Sunday?

    That's when Acquisitions Inc. is. That goes from 6 - 9, and the time it would take to turnaround the stage for concerts would leave pretty much no time for anyone to actually play anything.

    Did I typo the thread title or something? lol

    Anyway, MC Frontalot just announced a show for Monday night at El Corazon. Pretty common for him. Nobody else on the roster yet but I'll bet a couple of these other main stage acts will be on it.
    EDIT: Kirby Krackle is on the show as well, they're a good local band.

    A cheaper alternative is to take a bus - Benaroya Hall has an entrance to the underground bus tunnel, and the tunnel entrance at Convention Center Place is on 9th and Pine right across from The Paramount. So just take the elevator down there, hop on any bus, you only have to walk a couple blocks without hills. The tunnel is open until 1am Friday/Saturday, midnight Sunday, buses cost $2.50.

    Thanks for the bus guidance. I'm sure there'll be Uber surge pricing so bus options are helpful to know.
