Editor’s Note: And now, for something a bit different. Over the years Vanyaland has expanded its focus from a music-based digital publication to one that covers a spectrum of scenes across the city and beyond. So as PAX East 2019 descended on the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center this past weekend, our curiosity was piqued. The network of gaming culture festivals has always had a core audience here in Boston, welcoming folks from all walks of life, so we sent Vanyaland’s Emily Gardner to the Saturday edition (March 30) to capture the sights and scenes — from cosplayers to gamers to thrill-seekers to… well… to the apparent zombie outbreak that took place on the PAX grounds. There was a lot to take in across all four days, but below is a snapshot of the action through the Gardner’s lens.
