Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery Celebrates First Anniversary on Saturday, December 8 with Debut Performance of the Tom Price Desert Classic

Following a phenomenally successful first year, it's party time at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery in Georgetown. On Saturday, December 8 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM Fantagraphics commemorates this auspicious occasion with music, author appearances, a continuing display of Peanuts strips by Charles M. Schulz, and a one-day storewide sale. The festivities coincide with the colorful Georgetown Annual Holiday Artwalk.

Illustrious Fantagraphics cartoonists Jim Woodring, Ellen Forney and Jim Blanchard will preside over the party, which also marks the debut performance of The Tom Price Desert Classic. This group features prominent local musicians with past and present associations with the publisher. Fantagraphics alumnus Tom Price, former guitarist of the legendary U-Men, Monkeywrench, and Gas Huffer, is joined by current employee Martin Bland (Lubricated Goat, Bloodloss, Monkeywrench), ex-Huffers Matt Wright and Don Blackstone, and Joe Kilbourne (the Derelicts). Expect an extraordinary set of rootsy garage, punk, surf and psychobilly madness.

In the short span of one year, Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery has established itself as a catalyst for our region's internationally recognized alternative comics, illustration and graphics arts communities. The public of all ages is invited to mingle with local cartoonists and view the current exhibition of "Unseen Peanuts" by Charles M. Schulz. Guests will have the opportunity to enjoy exceptional music while getting a jump on holiday shopping with a special 20% discount on Fantagraphics diverse line of delightful, locally produced books.

Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is located at 1201 S. Vale St. in the heart of Seattle's Georgetown business district. Open daily, 11:30 - 8:00 PM. Sundays until 5:00 PM.
