Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery in Georgetown hosted their first anniversary party Saturday night. It was an event not to be missed as we quaffed PBR's, chatted with hosts Jim Woodring and Jim Blanchard about jazz and art, then scored an out of print Robt. Williams book for 20% off from Fantagraphics guru Larry Reid who relayed an amusing anecdote about Williams. Equally eventful was the debut performance of The Tom Price Desert Classic comprised of members of Gas Huffer, The Monkeywrench, and The Derelicts. Tom and co. blazed through their set leaving a child unconscious and the rest of the crowd wanting more.
Later we walked down the street to Stellar Pizza and Ale for the best pie we've found in Seattle, and a pitcher of local draft. Another host of the Fantagraphics party, artist Ellen Forney arrived shortly after we did showing she's not only talented but has exquisite taste.
