I scream, you scream, we'll all scream this Saturday, May 14th as Fantagraphics presents an entire day of musical mayhem!
Join us from 6:00 to 9:00 pm at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery as we unveil our latest exhibit "Charles Peterson: Taking Punk to the Masses." Peterson's photography is prominent in our Fantagraphics book of the same name, published in association with the acclaimed Nirvana exhibition at EMP. Local legend Peter Bagge will also be on hand to sign copies of Hate Annual #9 and Yeah! -- his collaboration with Gilbert Hernandez about an all-girl band, as a matter of fact!
Our conjoined neighbors, Georgetown Records, will be transformed into a "mom-and-pop punk rock emporium circa 1988 Seattle," as our curator Larry Reid explains it. Beloved local icon Russ Fallout will be DJ'ing records from that era; just don't make any requests for Leonard & the Love Gods -- I think Kurt, Kurt and Kurt are still after royalties.
And then, later that night, join Fantagraphics just around the corner at The Mix -- uh, I mean, Buddy & Jay's Scrap Metal Emporium, as it'll be known for the occasion! We've got Can You Imagine? on the bill, the Seattle supergroup featuring Peter Bagge and Steve Fisk. The Capillaries are back, and cartoonist Matt Southworth and friends will take the stage.
And also on the bill, it's Wormburner, all the way from Buddy Bradley's hometown of New Jersey! You can even catch a live in-studio performance from Wormburner at 1:00 pm PT that Saturday on local radio station KEXP 90.3 FM (streaming worldwide at KEXP.ORG).
So, grab your earplugs, and we'll see you tomorrow night! The Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is located at 1201 S. Vale Street in Seattle's Georgetown district.
