    Also, don't give them hope that they haven't improved their act since last year. Not like that's possible. :P

    I could say the same argument for JoCo, but that's because I just don't care for him personally. And I know a ton of people who would say the same for Freezepop, but I enjoy their live show.

    And everybody just stands around at the concerts like statues and listen to the live music like it's coming from their iPod.

    So I guess it all works out.

    I figured that after their stunt last year delaying everyone's set by 30-45 mins, that we would not be seeing them this year.

    this, wholeheartedly this

    also, on the 30 minute delay, that's pretty common at every concert, ever, with the exception of small local bar sets, which don't really have any wiggle room at all.

    I have high hopes they'll do amazing, especially after dropping their new album. They would be perfect live if we could get the shit to be balanced - Too much bass and not enough Chiptune noises coming through realllllly ruined the whole balance of their songs live.

    But it still happens at the small local bar sets sometimes. We had a show that was supposed to start at 9)with our stuff at around 10:30), but the first band was 'tuning up' for an hour and then played for 45+, so the second band had to set up quick and throw three songs out and we started at like...midnight. Had to cut a few matches out and make others short. Fuckers.

    That happened to my cousin's band once. The opening band was about half an hour late because the bar owner told them the wrong time (he thought they were going on second, not first). They just kept playing. When they noticed they had five minutes left, they started a fifteen minute song. The house lights went up, the bar owner was trying to signal them to stop, but they just kept going. It was great.

    Granted it helped that they had no interest in ever playing that bar ever again.

    Their new album, Dawn Metropolis sounds much better than their live stuff from PAX08. I like chiptunes, but their set was too much noise.

    Can anyone confirm if it was the guys from Anamanaguchi mixing chiptunes in front the of the convention center? Because that stuff was awesome.

    So, this'll be my first year going to PAX... is MC Frontalot like MC Chris?

    Also... I know Freezepop, I think, but are most of these bands kind of nerdcore or whatever?

    Anamanaguchi? What the heck do these guys sing about?

    Nah, that was an unsanctioned sidewalk concert. Here's a little blurb on Destructoid about it.

    All of the bands are nerd/video game related (huge surprise). Links to their music... some are myspace/flash players, others are downloadable mp3s:
    MC Frontalot
    Jonathan Coulton
    Paul and Storm
    Freezepop
    Anamanaguchi
    Metroid Metal

    LOL good point. I went to see Dragonforce and there was this opening band that did Metal songs about Mario and Sonic (like Rock me sexy Robotnik) and I was just curious if it was something similar.

    I suppose I should have expected as much lol. I'll check out the links. Thanks :)

    That didn't happen until the final round of the Omegathon. There was no puppet action during the concerts. Although a like minded group of people have tentative plans for something similar this year.

    My bad. Didn't realize that.

    :lol: Wow... I might just have to join in on the fun ^^. Thanks for the heads up . No way I'll be able to make my own though... I'm not artistically inclined at all.

    Thanks for the link, I enjoyed watching them last year but they weren't very vocal and I couldn't track any information down.

    Well... hopefully Anamanaguchi is better this year, anyway. I plan on giving them another chance.

    I'm looking forward to Anamanaguchi for sure. Dawn Metropolis rocks.

    Also, rather the bands list is final or not, I thought I would add the OneUps will not be playing, according to Mustin. It kinda sucks, a lot... :(

    I'll be there for MC frontalot though.
    Come on where's optimus rhyme? Now THAT'S a band I would like to see at PAX. Can someone pass this message on to them? 8-) Maybe it's too late though...

    Here's one of their songs: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FTLwiccIOxI Haha, quite suiting for this situation actually...

    Yeah, that sounds pretty cool... the only thing that turns me off of it slightly would be that it's just metroid theme reinterpretations. Not that I didn't love those games growing up, but there were plenty of others I enjoyed more.

    The NESKimos need to come back to PAX.


    One good reason why



    Optimus Rhyme and Broken English was a very good group. I have somewhere a video of the lead from O.R., playing on a Ocarina in 07'.

    Pffft. Living in B.C. is great. You get to be in an adjacent province/state to PAX, AND you still get to be Canadian.

    Yeah being Canadian is great! BC's pretty awsome too. Mildest weather ever...
