"Homestar Runner LIVE in Atlanta! 20th Anniversary Show!"

The Homestar Runner 20th Anniversary Show was a series of two events that took place in 2016, celebrating the twentieth anniversary of the Homestar Runner body of work through the creation of the Original Book in 1996.

Both shows took place at Venkman's, a restaurant and music venue in Atlanta. The first show was on Friday, September 2, 2016, at 10:00 PM, the weekend of Dragon Con; due to large demand, a second show was announced for the later date of Friday, October 7 with the same content. Both shows were first announced on @StrongBadActual and later promoted on homestarrunner.com in a main page message. Tickets were priced at $12-$25.

[edit] Background

From the event page:

Atlanta Cartoon Icons The Brothers Chaps will celebrate the 20th Birthday of Homestar Runner with a show at Venkman's!
They'll be backed by the guys from the Yacht Rock Revue (including Venkman's owners Nick and Pete) to perform hits by Strongbad, Homestar, Limozeen and all of your flash cartoon favorites.
We will be performing songs from the website including the hits "Trogdor" "The Cheat Is Not Dead" "Everybody to the Limit" and "Fish Eye Lens." Some of the performances will include video content, and we will be showing classic cartoons.

Both shows primarily featured live music performances. Music videos for several songs were played alongside toons, and puppets were featured as well. Some fans in attendance dressed up as characters from the Homestar Runner body of work.

The first half was mostly songs by the characters, with some songs performed by sloshy, while the second half was primarily Limozeen. Videos were playing during the first half of the show, showing the music videos for songs such as Rap Song, 2 Many Knives, and Fish Eye Lens as they were being performed on-stage.

The brand-new toon Homestar Runner Goes for the Gold debuted at the live shows before being uploaded to the site on December 24.

[edit] Description

Down at Fraggle Rock!

During the show, at some point during the performances, the video AV stopped working, so Matt Chapman started singing bread sing-alongs with Puppet Homestar Runner, who said that the songs had the power to fix AV problems. This eventually became a running gag. After an intermission, Limozeen played, and flicked Limozeen guitar picks (previously shown in a @StrongBadActual tweet) into the audience. Towards the end, Matt invited Jamey Huggins to the stage to share how he came up with the name "Home Star Runner". Before performing the finale, Secret Song, Matt said that normally they'd have to wait 227 seconds before hearing it like on Strong Bad Sings and Other Type Hits. At the end of the show, Matt said "Here's to twenty more years of making stupid stuff!", which was responded with a loud cheer from the audience.
