Troubletown Election Night PartyAdded to the calendar on Monday Oct 13th, 2008 4:38 PM
Bite your nails on election night with us at the Riptide. There will be an art show and book signing with Cartoonist Lloyd Dangle to celebrate 20 years of his strip Troubletown.
Watch the election results with friends on a gi-normous screen. We will have an “interactive” election map, goofy photo-ops with the candidates, depression era drink prices and free food (while it lasts).
Bonus: We will show the Daily Show and Colbert Report Election Night Coverage.

Troubletown Told You So: Comics that Could've Saved Us from this Mess is the new collection of comics from Lloyd Dangle, the nationally syndicated cartoonist whose work appears in the San Francisco Bay Guardian and other alternative newsweeklies and lefty political magazines. In his introduction, columnist Dan Savage says, "Thank God there’s at least one person out there who can clearly see the lies and the malice - and he’s still got a sense of humor! This is no small comfort in Bush’s America."
Ranked in the top ten on About.com’s top ten list of political books, Troubletown Told You So takes aim at topics like the war, terror, ethics, consumerism, religion, 9-11, and corporate greed in what is destined to become the definitive account of the George Dubya Bush Years.
Oakland, California cartoonist Lloyd Dangle grew up in Michigan, where he drew cartoons for Michael Moore’s muckraking newspaper, the Michigan Voice. He has also worked for the Village Voice, and his work has appeared in The New York Times, Mother Jones, The Nation, Utne Reader, and Wired. Lloyd was also the first cartoonist assigned to cover the Republican National Convention in New York City.
