Portable Grindhouse Release Party

To celebrate the release of PDX editor Jacques Boyreau's slyly packaged ode to trashy VHS box art, graphic novel publisher Fantagraphics is throwing a party with a live band, appearances by an international cadre of cartoonists and artists, and probable appearances by "a few buckets of beer". The book itself makes for great coffee table fodder, covering classic films like Penitentiary II, Beast of the Yellow Night, Bay of Blood, and the terrifyingly prescient apocalyptic thriller...1990: The Bronx Warriors.
