TN – The Goon 15th Anniversary Party

goon

Eric Powell appears at The Cannery Ballroom on Saturday, March 8th, 2014 at 8:00 pm!

Press Release:

Come Celebrate 15 years of Eric Powell’s ground breaking series THE GOON from Dark Horse Comics!

With musical performances by The Protomen and Urizen! As a thank you for 15 years of constant support by Goon fans, Eric will be showing a never before seen sneak peek of some scenes from the Goon Film Story Reel by Blur Studios! Acclaimed film maker David Fincher, Blur, Eric, and Dark Horse Entertainment have been working hard to bring a Goon animated feature film to life. In 2012 they ran a hugely successful kickstarted campaign to fund a full length story reel of the film to help sell the project. Here’s your chance to get an exclusive peek and party at Nashville’s greatest geek event of the year!

The Protomen
The Protomen are are more than just a rock band from Nashville… they are messengers, riding atop an Iron Stallion on their way to deliver the most vicious rock ‘n’ roll fable that the world has ever known. With several planned albums, and a live show that can crumble mountains, the future is in their hands. They were recently handpicked by Tenacious D to open a number of shows in Canada. Before that, they spent six years building a large and fiercely devoted fan base by kicking some major ass and headlining their own tours across the US and Canada. They have just returned to Nashville after a tour with big spiders, kangaroos, and amazing chocolate in Australia.
