What’s in Store: Lightning Snake Launch Party


Join us at Fantagraphics Bookstore this Saturday, June 10 from 3:00 to 5:00 PM as we host the publication party for Lightning Snake by Jason T. Miles from Cold Cube Press. This exhibition of original art and book signing coincides with the colorful Georgetown Carnival arts festival featuring art, music, and more from noon to 10:00 PM.

Selector Dub Narcotic performs right outside the bookstore at 4:00 PM, followed by free concerts by Northwest rock stalwarts Mudhoney, Young Pioneers, Tom Price Desert Classic (with our own Martin Bland on drums), Thee Sgt. Major III, and many more. View the Clown Town exhibition organized by bookstore curator Larry Reid with contemporary clown art by Augie Pagan, Kelly O, Tamlin, Doug Parry, Emilie Shepherd, Hector Tellez, Henry, and Fantagraphics’ Marc Palm. Another highlight is Hazardfactory’s Power Tool Drag Races. Cheer on our “Ratmobile” entry as we run for a record three consecutive trophies. Acrobats, spin art, Minions, arts and crafts booths, art cars, food trucks, beer and wine gardens, Equinox Studios interactive art, carnival games and other attractions provide entertainment for audiences of all ages.
