Guests Edit

Non-Musical Edit

Musical Edit

  • The Minibosses: No doubt the most popular of videogame bands, the Minibosses will be once again representing at PAX with their NES inspired riffs. They've had amazing performances in each of our shows and everyone can't wait for them to return.
  • MC Frontalot: Really needing no introduction, MC Frontalot will be representing all the way from Massachusetts now. One of the biggest names in Nerdcore Rap, he'll always have a special place in the heart of PA fans being the author of the Penny Arcade Theme Song.
  • Optimus Rhyme: Each and every year, Optimus Rhyme rocks out the PAX crowd with their crisp vocals and kickass beats. Local to Seattle, the Penny Arcade duo can see them whenever, but now they want to bring them to the masses.
  • The Video Game Pianist: This kid has some crazy amount of skill. If you've seen him on the Internet with his blindfolded Mario shenanigans, and if you were at PAX 2005 you had the opportunity to see his performance live.
  • The Neskimos: Again making the trek from Florida. Last year they blew away audiences with their closing performance on Friday night and rumored party hopping afterwards, so everyone is excited to have them back!
