The PDX Broadsides

The PDX Broadsides are a nerdy pop-folk trio hailing from Portland, Oregon (whence the PDX in their name!). They have been playing music together since 2011, and have become known for their harmonies and clever writing. The Broadsides write about fandoms and feelings, science and space, and celebrate geekery of all stripes as they sing about what they love.

In 2017, they signed to the Doubleclicks Records label (along with songstresses Lucia Fasano and Juliana Finch) and went on a successful West Coast tour. Their first Kickstarter, for their 4th CD Trust Issues, funded in 16 hours and finished at 278% of their goal. They've been musical guests at conventions including OryCon, GeekGirlCon, and Emerald City Comic Con, or you may have seen them play in shows with The Doubleclicks, Marian Call, or Chamber Band. They have received two nominations for the Pegasus Awards for Excellence in Filk (for “The Girl Who Couldn’t Even” and “Nathan Fillion (Please Take Off Your Pants)”).
