[edit] Event Description

Woot. Woot. Woot. Here’s a weekend that’s going to be soooo goood that you’d have to be a moron to miss it. Seriously. We’re bringing Matt and Mike Chapman, the Brothers Chap themselves, live to the Alamo to present a heaping helping of Strongbad, Trogdor, Teen Girl Squad, Homestar, Marziban, and basically all of your favorite H*R characters in a smorgasbord of cartoons and extras you can’t see anywhere else. These two titans of online entertainment have even promised us that they’ll be bringing the Homestar Runner puppet and shooting an original video just for use in these shows. With the massive popularity of their website, we can’t imagine that these shows won’t sell out in advance, so be sure to reserve your seats today!

Several toons were shared, including best thing and montage. Additionally, several then-unreleased videos were shown including Grumblecakes, Exaggerations, Family Resemblence, Sample of Style Too, and Tis True, Pom Pom, Tis True. Audience members were chosen to perform the karaoke versions of Everybody to the Limit and Because, It's Midnite.

A fan in attendance at the 9:30 Friday show recorded several brief segments. The videos are no longer available but have been transcribed below.
