Protomen Petition

edited April 2010 in PAX Archive
Ill admit, I didnt do any thorough thread excavation, so now that I think of it at 3:15 in the morning I find it slightly silly to have "Official" in the title.

But, I wanted to get the steamroller moving; I want to know how many people are for the Protomen to be here for PAX Prime?

Their official site bulletin has the following: http://www.protomen.com/images/emails/17/LetterToTheWestCoastians.jpg

Theyre practically calling us out, ladies and gentlemen. Let's help them experience the thrill that is entertaining us at PAX Prime!

Not only will I be making this thread tonight, but tomorrow (IE, after I have fallen asleep and subsequently woken up) I will be making a Facebook group dedicated to the Protomen coming to PAX 2010. Look it up when you get the chance.

Also, the game review site I belong to (Shameless plug incoming), www.GAMINGtruth.com, will have an article up soon-ish, as well as a shoutout and possibly a tribute (Read: A song or two) on a future podcast.

Stay tuned, and lend your support! We must have the power ballads of the Mega Man universe entertain us at PAX!

Thanks everybody.

Sincerely,

Shaddz, The Fragrant Gamer

Facebook has hit 100 members! Rejoice!
An email has been sent to Robert Khoo, Gabe, and Tycho, detailing our goal, with links to GAMINGtruth's news entry, the FB group, and the Twitter feed. Hopefully theyll take note.
Tomorrow, Sunday the 11th, GAMINGtruth will record the 28th episode of the TRUTHcast. When it goes live, have a listen, as we'll be playing one or two of the Protomen's best songs.
We're going strong, ladies and gentlemen!

Thank you.

    Most of the time when bands say they're the greatest it isn't true. But they definitely are the greatest band in robot masks and silver and black face paint haha.

    I would LOVE to see these guys again at Prime 2010. They were amazing.

    They did a great job at PAX East and I saw Tycho in the crowd around the stage in a video of their show. I thought it was a done deal that they'd be back. You might not even need this campaign.

    Now if you were campaigning to get PAX to let them play both acts in their entirety...where the hell do I sign?

    If it was a done deal then Protomen wouldn't be asking their fans to petition for them. ;)

    They were a great act. Rock opera is a fairly good description of them.

    One of the (many) live bands I've seen perform where they sound better live than they do in their (studio) album(s).

    When I spoke to them at PAX EAST, they said they really wanted to come to PAX PRIME, and they're definitely one of Jerry's favorites so they absolutely need to be here.

    If there is ever something to sign, I will sign it.

    Ive been listening to them ever since a buddy of mine linked their song "Light up the night" on their Facebook on Friday last.

    I will be making the FB group sometime tonight, maybe around 8 PM PST. Look it up when you get the chance.

    Later everyone, and spread the word!

    When I saw Henry Rollins during his current spoken word tour, he thanked the audience for showing up and being so polite and engaged. He went off on a tangent about the disappointment of seeing Bad Brains last year, and how HR just isn't all there any more, and the performance suffered for it. He wanted it to be like the old days, when Bad Brains would just melt your face. Henry's philosophy is that when a band or performer puts on a show, his only goal should be to blow you away. You should go home thinking, "Holy crap, I can't believe what I just witnessed!"

    I hadn't seen Protomen before PAX East, but Henry Rollins would be proud. I don't think anyone could doubt their commitment. The people of Seattle deserve to have their minds blown at PAX Prime.

    I wasn't aware of the Protomen's existence before PAX East. The day after they played, I was extremely busy the entire time filming stuff, and almost didn't get the opportunity to swing by their booth and buy their CDs. I was catching them in the hallway whenever I could in the hopes that they might have some albums on them so I could buy them. By the end of the show I was almost clamoring for a chance to get their music. Then I finally was able to swing by their booth and buy their CDs. I was so. HAPPY.

    But yeah, I've been listening to those albums almost non-stop now, and watching our concert footage of the performance over and over. So incredibly awesome. I never knew the Megaman story had so much meat to it.

    Signed, double-signed from another state, triple and quadruple-signed by a couple dead relatives.

    I WANTS MORE PROTOMEN.

    If they come to Prime, I hope I don't have to work through the show. I missed them at East. Then again the call of the local bars may have been louder that night...

    Regardless, I'm interested. Here's my X.

    I'm going to dissent. I left the Protomen show to chill out because it was, to me, the antithesis of what PAX should have been. It was uncomfortably loud, the fans were really rowdy and pushy, and it just generally seemed to violate Wheaton's law.

    Every other part of PAX was really chill, people were friendly, and even when things got busy, it all still just seemed low-key. But the Protomen show? Just the opposite. I guess they're "geeky" because they are inspired by Mega Man or something, but the concert hall otherwise felt like I was surrounded by a bunch of metalheads looking to mosh, not a brotherhood of geeks.

    Metroid Metal and portions of VGO really rocked hard, so I'm not looking for all JoCo and Paul and Storm here, but if Protomen are at PAX, I'll know to avoid them from now on.

    Oh, and I tried to give them a second chance after PAX. I figured I'd go to their website, maybe see what they're all about, listen to some sample tracks where you can actually hear the lyrics, since their sound levels at the Hynes sucked. Their site was a Flash monstrosity that resized my browser. Closed it right there. Protomen are not for me.
