The Filk Music Track is so excited to announce that for One Show Only, The PDX Broadsides are playing with our track!

The PDX Broadsides have been playing music together since 2011. Accidentally formed as an a capella pirate shanty group, they soon branched out into their own original compositions. The Broadsides love things, and as a result many of their songs are about the things they love. Turns out those things are basically nerdy.  They have been fortunate enough to be able to operate on only the money they make as a band, which is a pretty amazing concept.

The PDX Broadsides have played all around the West Coast at venues large and small. They’ve done conventions including OryCon (as musical guest of honor), GeekGirlCon, Rose City Comic Con, and GameStorm, or you may have seen them play in shows with The Doubleclicks, Marian Call, or Chamber Band.

According to Pandora, if you like the PDX Broadsides because of their “comedic sensibility, folk roots, acoustic sonority, and paired vocal harmony”, you probably also like Jonathan Coulton, Ingrid Michaelson, Magnetic Zeroes, Karen Kilgariff, The Finches, Paul and Storm, and Barenaked Ladies. Who’s going to argue with that?
