Troubletown creator Lloyd Dangle is appearing upstairs at Reading Frenzy this evening; perhaps you've read the comic in the Mercury's pages. Dangle has a new book out, called Troubletown Told You So: Comics that Could've Saved Us from this Mess, and he'll be presenting his "Sly and Snide Comedy Slideshow." As you know, slideshows are always fun. Anyway, the event takes place upstairs of Reading Frenzy, in the ILWU Local 5 office. It's free if you buy Dangle's book, $5 if you don't. Oh yeah, and most importantly, there's free beer from Ninkasi.

Reading Frenzy (upstairs), 921 SW Oak, 7 pm
