Are you going to Boston this weekend for the debut of Penny Arcade’s East Coast Expo? Great! We’ll be there too, carrying bags full of journalism, instant noodles and other terrible junk food that we’ll probably regret eating later. But more importantly, we’ll bouncing around the Hynes Convention Center like overstimulated Yorkshire terriers covering all sort of music-related happenings at PAX East.

Find a short round-up of some notable events and panels you might want to check out after the jump!

Since the first kid heard the four-note Space Invaders theme blasting out the arcade doors, music has played a powerful role in the history of digital games.

Audience discussion encouraged.

Afterwards, we’re going to rock the joint six ways till Sunday with not one, but two chiptune concerts, right smack dab in the middle of PAX.
