Celebrity shoppers: Vivian Girls at Fantagraphics Bookstore
Written by Larry Reid | Filed under Fantagraphics Bookstore 1 May 2009 2:15 PM

The Vivian Girls at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery

Brooklyn's lovely Vivian Girls dropped by Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery before their show at Neumo's on Thursday to stock up on road reading material by Ivan Brunetti, Paul Hornschemeier, and Esther Pearl Watson. (Unlovable, they're not!) Highlights of their current tour included a spot at the Coachella Music Festival where the band reported Sir Paul's marathon midnight serenade set him back thousands for violating local noise curfews. We're guessing he can afford it.

See you all tomorrow for Free Comic Book Day and next Saturday, May 9 for Tony Millionaire's Drinky Crow show!
