An evening custom-built for nerds and geeks of all stripes. Bestselling fantasy author Pat Rothfuss will read from his works, answer questions and tell stories; comedy/music duo Paul and Storm will sing about nuns, chicken nuggets, video games, and an incredibly long song about pirates.
Join us in a night of games and games-in-the-making! In addition to having loads of games available for everyone to play, we'll be listening to presenters as they pitch their game projects and ideas to us.
Each presenter will share a brief description of their project, do their presentation, then ask us –the audience– to give them feedback via Q&A and comment cards. Our specific schedule is in the works, but we will be listening to clusters of pitches broken up by time for us to play games...
The PDX Broadsides are an acoustic band who write songs about the things they like. This includes comics, science, fiction, science fiction, and many other nerdy topics. Jessica, Hollyanna and Christian are Portlanders with a smart sense of humor and a taste for the absurd.

The trio have performed at conventions, bars, and libraries, and are frequently found on panels about music, costuming, comics, and more.

Nerd punk band Thundering Asteroids!, drunk punks The Tanked, raw rock powerhouse Lexxi Vexx & the Modern Gentlemen, and the hard-hitting World War IV will be taking up their axes and drumsticks to join the battle.
Singer-songwriter Marian Call is grounded in Alaska, though she spends a lot of the year on the road. She has released five albums since 2007, and her shows have been well-received in all fifty United States and all across Canada and Europe. Call’s sound is soulful, honest, and clever, by turns humorous and heartbreaking. She sounds a little like Joni Mitchell & Ani DiFranco raising the love child of Ingrid Michaelson & Regina Spektor. She can often be found on the road singing and working hard, yet despite her frequent travels she stays rooted at home in Alaska for inspiration...
