Get your fix for the DT's
Fantagraphics continues to kick out the jams with an upcoming event on March 10th... Eric Reynolds says:
Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery and Georgetown Records Present “Filthy Beasts,” featuring music by the DT’s and art by Jim Blanchard on March 10.
Please join us on Saturday, March 10 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM as Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery, in association with Georgetown Records, host an evening of fine art and raucous rock n roll. “Filthy Beasts” combines the CD release of the DT’s “Filthy Habits” recording on the Get Hip label with an exhibition and signing of Jim Blanchard’s “Beasts and Priests” title on Seattle’s Fantagraphics Books imprint. This festive event is free to the public of all ages. Georgetown Records and Fantagraphics Bookstore are located at 1201 S. Vale. St., at the corner of S. Vale and Airport Way S. in the heart of the Seattle’s historic Georgetown district.
I hear tell design superstar Art Chantry has designed a special poster for the event as well!
Welcome to That Ain’t Art- a collaboration by four art aficionados focused on the alternative art scene in the Northwest and beyond. We hail from Roq la Rue Gallery (Kirsten and Celeste), BLVD Gallery (Damion), and Fantagraphics (Larry)... so you’ll be seeing a lot of that type of work, but we’ll also be posting whatever else we like, that looks good and is likely to not get picked up by local press. Obviously, everything in here is the opinion of that particular poster. We’ll also be talking about relevant stuff outside of the Northwest, and we’ll have some notable guest bloggers hipping you to the good stuff, so stay tuned...
