The annual PAX East convention, this year from March 11th to March 13th at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, is ready to go right after GDC. (Can you give our guys a moment to breathe, please?)
Last year's musical acts were awesome, and this year's hopes to be no different. The featured acts are Jonathan Coulton ("Still Alive" or "that cake song" from Portal), MC Frontalot, Metroid Metal, Paul and Storm, The Protomon, and the Video Game Orchestra. Robert Khoo of Penny Arcade is excited to bring back what was a resounding success:
The first year reception to the music artists was phenomenal. We had packed crowds and had to turn a lot of people away at the door. As long as we keep seeing that kind of passion and excitement we’re going to keep bringing the concerts back every year.
Look for upcoming on-floor coverage from Blake and Anthony as they geek out for three whole days.
