The Goon Celebrates 20th Anniversary With A Nashville Party And Live Music

by Olly MacNamee

With The Goon back in print this year, thanks to Eric Powell’s Albatross Funnybooks, it’s only fitting that the occasion is marked with a party. Celebrating in style, Eric Powell will be welcoming a number of special guests to his Nashville party, and you’re invited too. Well, if you can get on down to Nashville, that is.

The event will feature a live recording of Steve Agee’s Uhhh podcast, with host Steve Agee (The Sarah Silverman Program, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2), guests Brendon Small (Metalocalypse, Galaktikon, Home Movies) Ben Garant (Reno 911!, The State) and The Goon creator Eric Powell, as well as a performance by special musical guest West End Motel, featuring Brent Hinds (Mastodon) and Tom Cheshire (Rent Boys, All Night Drug Prowling Wolves).

Coinciding with the release of a new Goon #1, partygoers will be given the opportunity to grab a variant edition of the new series, featuring the first new Goon strip since 2015.
The Goon 20th Anniversary Party will be held on on March 8, 2019 at Cannery Ballroom One, Cannery Row, Nashville, TN 37203. Doors open at 7 pm. Tickets cost $15. The Goon 20th Anniversary Party edition of The Goon # 1 will be sold at the event for $10.00.
