Former Fallout Records owner and long-time Friend of Fantagraphics (and occasional employee back in the day) Tim Hayes is opening up a bar called Tigertail this next Friday in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle. If you know what's good for you, you'll be there.
Besides a sake menu and what's sure to be a great jukebox, the works of Daniel Johnston (from Hayes' collection) will be up on display!
Seattle Weekly has more here.
You can buy tickets here for this event Friday night at the Hugo House in Seattle...

FANTAGRAPHICS TO PUBLISH "TOWN OF MIRRORS: THE REASSEMBLED IMAGERY OF ROBERT POLLARD"
STUDIO DANTE HOSTS "DO THE COLLAGE" EXHIBITION DEC. 9 & 10 IN NEW YORK CITY
On the eve of his first solo visual art exhibition in New York City, Fantagraphics Books is proud to announce the release in June 2008 of TOWN OF MIRRORS: THE REASSEMBLED IMAGERY OF ROBERT POLLARD, a coffee-table collection of artwork and lyrics from the celebrated front man of Dayton, OH's legendary GUIDED BY VOICES.
So, this weekend I was working a book convention in Portland. I had copies of Zippy: Walk a Mile in My Muu-Muu in tow (the new Zippy the Pinhead collection by Bill Griffith) and a woman walked by the booth on Saturday, saw Zippy out of the corner of her eye, and made a beeline for it. She declared, "I love Zippy!"
I said to her, "Me, too!" and added, "I'm glad to hear it, I always consider Zippy a good barometer of taste, because it's kind of a polarizing strip."
She looked at me without a hint of irony and said excitedly, "I KNOW!... JUST LIKE BILLY JOEL!"
