Before you plan your weekend, you should know that something didn't make it in the print edition of The Stranger's readings calendar that you should know about: On Sunday night, Gainsbourg in Greenwood is hosting a release party for the new book Best American Comics 2011, which features local treasure David Lasky and hot young Portland cartoonist Julia Gfrorer. The party will feature Lasky and Gforer talking about their comics, kids from Light in The Attic Records spinning Serge Gainsbourg-themed music, video projections of Lasky's Gainsbourg-themed comic, and absinthe drink specials. If you like comics, Serge Gainsbourg, food, or alcohol, you should come out to this event.
