Celebrate Fantagraphics Bookstore’s Fabulous Fourth Anniversary this Saturday!


From the press release:

Amazing Music, Awesome Art, Comix, and More.

Since opening in December 2006, Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery has become a treasured civic asset. In addition to feeding Northwest residents’ insatiable appetite for challenging contemporary culture, the space has attracted visitors from across the country and around the world. Saturday, December 11 marks the bookstore’s 4th anniversary, and to celebrate the occasion we’re once again hosting the season’s most festive party.

The evening includes solo music sets by Zak Sally , formerly of Low, and Mark Pickerel, formerly with The Screaming Trees. Zak will also sign books and bring new projects from his indie imprint La Mano 21.

An exhibition of comix art curated by Jason T. Miles and Max Clotfelter for Friends of the Nib features emerging cartoonists and masters of the medium. “Medieval Thinkers” includes original works by Peter Bagge , Bruce Bickford, D. J. Bryant , Chris Cilla, Max Clotfelter, Eleanor Davis , Kim Deitch , Heidi Estey, Kelly Froh, Justin Green, Gerald Jablonski, Megan Kelso, Jason T. Miles, Nate Neal, Bob Rini, Zak Sally, Dash Shaw, Matt Tamaru, Drew Weing, Jim Woodring, Mary Woodring, Max Woodring, Martine Workman, and Chris Wright. Jim Woodring and other exhibiting artists will be signing books, minis, and other merchandise. Perfect gifts!

All this plus screaming deals on comix, celebrity guests, holiday libations, demented Christmas platters spun by DJ Russ Fallout, and a few surprises makes Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery’s 4th anniversary party the place to be on Saturday, December 11, 6:00 to 9:00 PM. Also that evening, the colorful holiday edition of the Georgetown Art Attack includes a free screening of  Santa Claus vs.
the Martians  at the Georgetown Trailer Park Cinema, a wild art jam at the 9 Lb. Hammer, a holiday party at Belle & Wissell, and other great attractions.
