The Museum of Comic & Cartoon Art Festival 2012 happens all day 4/28 & 4/29 at the Lexington Ave Armory in NYC. The Klein Award is being presented to Gary Panter. The afterparty which is also a Harvey Pekar's CLEVELAND launch, with music by Daniel Johnston, and a special appearance by Jeffrey Lewis, happens Saturday night at Village Pourhouse.
Daniel Johnston and Jeffrey Lewis last saw each other in March, also at a comic-related event.

Jeffrey Lewis & The Junkyard are currently on the road, and about to pull the van into Vassar College in Poughkeepsie to play a show tonight (4/7). The Vassar date marks the second to last show on a short (over a week) tour that will terminate in NYC Friday (4/8) at Silent Barn with The Beets, El-G & Preston Spurlock.
The Silent Barn show must be a late one though because Jeff will also be performing earlier on Friday at a MoCCA 2011 Pre-Party with Peter Stampfel at SUTRA Lounge (16 1st Avenue). $5 cover (donation to The Museum of Comic & Cartoon Art) (they play that one at 7:30pm sharp).
Starting Saturday, 4/9, Jeff will spend two days at the Museum of Cartoon and Comic Art's Festival at Lexington Armory (68 Lexington Avenue between 25th & 26th St).
MoCCA Fest is an annual two-day event attracting thousands of comic art lovers and creators from around the globe to celebrate the world's most popular art form in the heart of New York City. It is an annual fundraiser for the Museum.Lewis will have his own table at the event, and will undoubtedly offer some of his comics for sale. Tickets are on sale. Flyer below.
Since 2002, MoCCA Fest has offered a unique venue to experience comics, mini-comics, web comics, graphic novels, animation, posters, prints, original artwork, and more. In addition to the hundreds of creators who exhibit, the Festival hosts dozens of established and emerging creators, scholars, and other experts who participate in two days of lecture/discussion panels on a variety of comics and cartoon topics.
Jeffrey Lewis's last LP was a collaborative effort between him and Peter Stampfel. The Come On Board LP, which dropped on Jan 1, is out now on digital/CD via Bandcamp and is streaming with stuff below..
