What is Gridlords? No two performances are the same, but in essence, this monthly experimental art show based out of Portland combines various artistic mediums built around a narrative. Mediums in the past have included live music, comic readings, animations, and artist lectures. Seattle is honored to host their first show outside of Portland, and Fantagraphics is honored to watch Mome cartoonist, Andrice Arp's presentation of a film that inspirationaly highlights the creative processes, accompanied by live music, and then followed by a puppetry parable in anticipation of her new comic, Occupation. And that's only one part of the night's line-up.
Other guests for the evening festivities include, Theo Ellsworth, Asher Craw, Daria Tessler, Gridlords founder, Sean Christensen, and more.

According to Short Run, "Tickets are available in two packages: $7 for admission-only, or $20 for admission, plus a bonus fun pack containing the Gridlords anthology, Other Worlds (a $10 value), as well as other comics, original artwork, and more from artists involved in the show." An amazing deal to see the most all emcompasing live art production of the year.
The performance will begin at 7 pm, and takes place at Gallery 1412, located at 1412 18th Ave, between Union and Pike. Spend a beautiful summer evening with us, and witness a comic anthology brought to life before your eyes.
