Fantagraphics Bookstore curator Larry Reid and colleague Martin Imbach of Georgetown Records have organized a fascinating exhibition for the Bumbershoot arts festival. Between Garage & Grunge: Glitter, Glam & Proto-Punk in Seattle’s Subversive 70s examines the seminal counterculture that laid the foundation for a movement that would later influence pop culture on a global scale. The show includes period posters, photos, zines, records, film, and flamboyant fashion from an amazing era. The Labor Day weekend festivities feature music by Faith No More, Babes in Toyland, Dead Moon, The Melvins, Brand New, Social Distortion, Neko Case, and many more. Free preview of visual arts on Friday, September 4 from 3:00 to 8:00 PM.
Drop by the store and see some Extra Good Stuff by the Northwest’s resident gonzo raconteur Dennis P. Eichhorn illustrated by Max Clotfelter, Ivan Brunetti, Dame Darcy, Noah Van Sciver, David Lasky and other brilliant artists. Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is located at 1201 S. Vale Street in Seattle’s enchanting Georgetown industrial arts corridor. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00 PM. Phone 206.658.0110.
