See you at Sub Pop 20
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under staffevents 11 Jul 2008 3:47 PM

Sub Pop 20th Anniversary Festival

Going to the Sub Pop Records 20th Anniversary Festival this Saturday and Sunday? Us too, and we couldn't be happier about it. The Sub Pop and Fantagraphics families have been deeply entwined through the years. Not only that, the festival's proceeds are being donated to charities chosen by each of the acts performing, and Green River and Mudhoney are donating their share to the Northwest Parkinson's Foundation in honor of Seattle rock mainstay and former Fantagraphics staffer Tom Price.

Be sure and stop by our table to pick up a catalog and some other free swag, especially on Sunday when Larry Reid will be there to regale you with war stories of the Sub Pop/Fantagraphics family tree. See you there!

The Daily Cross Hatch has word on "Zines of the Cities," a great-looking retrospective of Minneapolis/Saint Paul zines now on display at the Stevens Square Center for the Arts gallery (1905 3rd Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55404), featuring work by Zak Sally and Mr. Mike (no relation) among many others.

And the Star Clipper Blog clues us in to the Mad Magazine Exhibit, currently on display at the St. Louis Artists' Guild in Clayton, MO. It's not stated which artists are included in the exhibit (Kurtzman? Elder?) or even what era, if any, the exhibit focuses on, but admission is free so it won't cost you nothin' to find out.

Bagge in Portland OR, TONIGHT & this weekend
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Peter Baggeevents 27 Jun 2008 10:49 AM

Peter Bagge writes and sez:

It'll be an event-clogged weekend in PDX for me this upcoming weekend, all revolving around a 2 day, all-day teaching seminar I'll be holding at the Portland Northwest College of Art on Sat, June 28th and Sun. June 29th (Jessica Abel, Matt Madden and Daniel Dufford will be teaching courses there all this week as well).

I also will be signing copies of the APOCALYPSE NERD book collection at Powell's bookstore on Friday the 27th at 7:30 PM.

On Saturday the 28th at 5pm, I'm scheduled to take part in an "Interactive discussion with comic creators" at the Someday Lounge, though no mention of it is made on their website so attend at your own risk!

Right after that, from 7 - 9 pm, the nearby Floating World comic shop will be holding a "closing" party for a group art show featuring work by JR Williams, Mats?!, David Chelsea and myself (we'll all be in attendance except for Mats?!). Floating World's website appears to be down at the moment, but you can get all the info you need from their MySpace Page.
