The annual Penny Arcade Expo is a wonderful opportunity for anyone and everyone to get a sneak peek at upcoming games months before they're released. That alone is reason for thousands to sign up, but if you ask me, the highlight every year is theconcert lineup. Several game-themed bands, playing songs they love about a topic they love, to an audience that's singularly united by its love for all things videogames. It's as close to nerd heavenyou'll ever experience. And they've finally revealed who's playing this year.

Another great reason to attend? The panels. Oh boy, are there ever so many panels that are relevant to your interests. Why, I'd bet a certain game site would plan on having some of those panels this year, and that anyone who was maybe thinking about going to PAX but wasn't sure should probably make up their minds VERY SOON.
