We'd like to thank Matt and Eric from the Washington Beer Commission for having us and being awesome hosts, Al Jones from A&L Productions for being a super cool and proficient soundman, Cody Gray for hooking us up with the gig, all the breweries and food vendors, and everyone in the crowd who enjoyed our hour-long set of nerd-punk rock.
Speaking of the set, here's the list, for posterity's sake:
Winner Takes It All

Hoping to be back next year!

(WARNING - Contains spoilers for Volume Five)
"With the help of an enemy-turned-ally, Joel Suzuki has returned to the magical, musical island of Spectraland. He's ready to learn the licks and riffs he needs in order to stop his nemesis from conquering all of existence.
But after an unexpected betrayal, that plan is no longer practical - if it was ever possible. Joel's only choice is to embark on a hazardous journey through alternate realities, gathering the energy of multiple Songshells through a perilous process that jeopardizes not only his own life, but the integrity of the multiverse itself.
Meanwhile, another threat has emerged as forces from faraway worlds conspire to destroy both Spectraland and Earth. Faced with foes on all sides and racing against time, Joel must find a way to complete his mission while dealing with romantic distractions, fading memories, and - maybe the biggest danger of all - the corrupting influence of his own growing power."
Next step: the proof copy! Stay tuned...
