One of the truly gratifying developments we’ve experienced over the last decade at Fantagraphics Bookstore is the revival of the record store. Our retail partners at Georgetown Records have held true to their vision of promoting great music and restoring record stores to their previous place as essential cultural institutions. Come celebrate their success on Record Store Day this Saturday, April 16 from 11:30 to 8:00 PM. You’ll find exclusive RSD releases and an amazing array of collectible recordings from legendary Northwest bands, in addition to their diverse selection of vintage vinyl.
If you missed the awesome exhibition of tributes to influential Italian artist Guido Crepax, drop by the store on Saturday. We’ll continuously screen Valentina videos by Alex Korolkovas (pictured) with a special soundscape by Sérgio Rocha. Art by David Lasky, Roberta Gregory, Benjamin Marra, George Pratt, and many more. The show remains on view through April 21. Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is located at 1201 S. Vale Street in the heart of Seattle’s historic Georgetown arts community. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00 PM. Phone 206-658-0110.
