    Considering MC Frontalot, The Minibosses, and Optimus Rhyme have been at PAX all 4 years so far, I'd expect them back again. And they better damn well get Jonathan Coulton back again, because he kicked ass last year.

    from what i hear (i have connections) basically it is like the ones last year plus 2 but not final details (yata, yata, yata......)

    on a side note,

    rock band battle of the bands?
    THE BEST TOURNAMENT POSSIBLE EVER EVER
    i think that would be the best thing possible as a guy who has the bundle, 2 drum kits, and all the songs downloaded i think we need a battle of the bands for a tournament. anyone else?

    Dunno who'd be putting it together but Rock Banding with people is one of the reasons I'm attending.

    I really do want to see Optimus Rhyme live, I've really liked them for a while, and this'll be my first PAX.

    I wonder if Jonathan Coulton is too cool for PAX these days...
    He's probably too cool to not be at PAX

    Frontalot's page has a listing for PAX, so he'll be there at least.

    It also says the Minibosses, Jonathon Coulton, Freezepop and The 1UPs will be there. But it may just be a guess. :P

    I'm just hoping that the Oneups will show up again. Love their music but unfortunately, live in Canada. PAX will probably be my only chance to see them live.

    I'm totally down with that lineup. I haven't seen any of them live but I've heard their work.

    Really?
    I mean, not to say you are wrong, but Wikipedia and their web site seem to say nothing of the sort.

    Do you know something we don't?

    That's what his Myspace says. Guess he's coming back. Hmm...

    So, it's Frontalot, MC Chris, Minibosses, Jonathon Coulton, Freezepop and the 1UPs? Sounds good.

    Wonder if there's any more surprises though.

    As a heads up, we're starting to do more of a band rotation for future years. Sadly, if we had every band back every year while still giving some fresh content a chance, the concerts would be 6 hours long a night. :)

    Yeah, I don't know why Khoo started out that sentence with "sadly". Well....except, that would be a long time to stand after a day of walking around. And maybe that wouldn't be good for people's ears. And maybe the enforcers wouldn't like it. But still; epic.

    I dunno... 6 hours is quite a long time for the video crews to keep tape in the cameras. We wouldn't want to have parts of the concert not recorded or anything!

    I've seen MC Chris 3 times and I'm still psyched to see him... especially with a crowd that appreciates him. As an opener hes a bit of a downer, the fans of the main act are never into it. I'm really glad to see Frontalot will be there. I've missed two chances to see him.

    If I didn't get the opportunity to nerd out with Mustin for a few hours again this year I would be extremely disappointed.

    As always, looking forward to the best music lineups ever assembled.
