In 2004, the folks at Penny Arcade decided they wanted a show exclusively for gaming. Sure, comics, anime, and other nerd hobbies were cool, and those activities all had their own shows… so what about games? From that idea spawned a small 4,500 person event in Bellevue, Washington, focused on the culture and community that is gaming.

When the first PAX was birthed in 2004, live music was one of the core pillars to the show. We were fans of the Minibosses and MC Frontalot, and from there we expanded both our knowledge and lineup of the genre. At the time, having that many people in a room listening to nerdcore music wasn’t “a thing.” In fact, nerdcore music was barely “a thing.”
