saki newsletter 9/11/12!

Hey there, not much to report from camp saki in the past week, but lots of good stuff coming up! We're so excited to have the Handsome Family & Daniel Knox playing for us this Thursday! Both are playing Epitonic saki Sessions, so you can come check it out live at the shop for free, and then download it from Epitonic after it's all mixed & mastered. On Saturday, we have the opening reception for Fug Comics: A Collection of Fugscreens Comic-Oriented Prints. Cellar Rat & Finch's Beer Co. are providing the drinks for that one, and we've got the snacks covered. Come on out, for free food, drinks & to check out some fantastic screen prints from Fugscreens.

Next weekend we have Senorita Weiner's Top Secret Humor Experiment & Ice Cream Social Club featuring comedy from Junior Stopka, Mike Lebovitz, & more on Friday, and then another in-store from Terra 5 & Cochise Soulstar on Saturday. We might have a special last minute Epitonic saki Session on Sunday, but we don't want to announe that until it's fully confirmed. Stay tuned!

Also, keep a look out for an announcement concering our new in-house record label. Yes, some of you may know that we're related to Carrot Top Records, but saki records will be more tailored to the store employees & our specific tastes. We're obviously really, really excited about it! More on that soon!
