I'm excited to announce that The OneUps will be headlining the vgXpo in Philadelphia this month on November 22. We'll be at the Pennsylvania Convention Center (1101 Arch St, Philadelphia, PA 19107).
Tickets are:

Youth (6-14) $10 day pass | $20 weekend pass
Adult (15-255) $15 day pass | $30 weekend pass

Though you can buy tickets outside Exhibition Hall B, tickets are cheaper if you order them online.
All information on tickets can be found here:

We'll be performing around 23:00 (11 o'clock at nite).

Opening acts scheduled are: Cheap Dinosaurs, No Carrier, Animal Style, Cyrptorchid Chipmunk, and Ultraball.

The music starts around 20:30 (half past 8 o'clock in the evening) so come early if you wanna catch 'em all.
More information about the vgXpo on their Web site at www.vgxpo.com.

Hope to see you there! We'll have CDs and T-Shirts for sale.

Due to personal reasons, The OneUps is now down to 5 members. The violin player (Greg Kennedy) has removed himself from the band. This change will directly change who maintains this community.

If you would like to step in and take charge of the community, leave a comment here or message Greg Kennedy at kennedy (dot) greg (at)gmail.com. He will get back to you within a reasonable amount of time and give you full moderation of the community.

Pax had 42,000 people pre-register + guests that showed up to pay the higher price at the door. Apparently the room The OneUps played in was twice the size of the room they played in last year (of course not all of those 42,000 people were at the concert; there are many activities going on that people are interested in) which resulted in a much larger crowd. Greg just called and said they played well really well, got a long line interested in Volume Two (so far over 150 copies sold + they have 4 more hours of "booth" time tonight) and the rest of the merchandise that the band brought with them. The band is pumped up and excited about their performance. I've been checking for someone to make a blog post or news post about the show, but nothing yet. Will post links as they come.

Will keep everyone updated about PAX as I get more info.

All of the members of The OneUps are safe in Seattle getting ready for the Penny Arcade Expo 2008 performance tonight. Tonight also marks the debut of their second album, Volume Two, which will be available for purchase from their website on September 2, 2008.
