Featured: Argh!







Just in from the excellent nation of Spain. Crude, obscene, anarchic, adolescent, surreal rants cheerfully executed, and beautifully printed. A fine purgative after a diet of deadly serious, "ambitious" graphic novels.

Event: Daniel Bachman & Mark Fosson This Saturday



This Saturday, Nov 17th, 8pm
at
Brickbat Books:

Daniel Bachman
Mark Fosson



An evening of primo post-Takoma guitar soli.
 


Daniel Bachman is a very young man with a very great degree of talent.  His songs shift and shimmer.  He's got the spirit of ol' Virginny.   Real deal.



Mark Fosson's music was lost in time when his '77 Takoma album never got released.  After a pleasant rediscovery by Drag City a few years ago Fosson's back.  He's got a nimble snap that would give Kottke's armadillo record a run for its money.


Please come out and enjoy.
