The Misfits reunion at Riot Fest ’16 was a historical moment, a horror-punk miracle that a lot of diehard fans had given up on ever coming true. Opportunities like such come once or twice in a lifetime—and for local Rockford punk act Egan’s Rats, it was certainly the case back in 2007 when Misfits staple Jerry Only called with a jaw-dropping offer: an opening slot for a Misfits benefit at the historic Coronado Theatre. Below, resident comic whiz Bianca Xunise has illustrated how it all went down.
The Original Misfits are returning to Chicago on Saturday, April 27th and FEAR, Venom Inc., and Power Trip are going to show you how they open. Tickets are on sale now.
