saki newsletter 10/2/12!

Oh hey, Duderinos! We had a great time last week with in-stores from Here We Go Magic, Helado Negro, Serengeti & Tony Trimm, another round of Creative Control with Joe McAdam & Brother George, and the Schubas Pig, Swig & Dig! If you made it out for any of those things, thank you! Oh, and it was SO nice to see you. You're beautiful! You've lost weight, no?? Lookin' good!

We're gearing up for another big week, with our art opening for October this Saturday. Jordan Martins' show, Dysgraphia uses old hand-painted neighborhood grocery signs and repurposes them on canvas in a meticulous grid pattern. It's super bright and fun stuff that is actually pretty reminiscent of some of Sonnenzimmer's work. Speaking of which, Sonnenzimmer's Nick Butcher will be DJing the opening and as always, we'll have food & drinks for you fine people to enjoy. Come on out, it's gonna be a "real cool time" - Iggy Pop.


  from Jordan Martins' Dysgraphia

Then, on Monday, we welcome the pop punk allstars from Motion City Soundtrack for an Epitonic saki Session with Mike Middleton! MCS have been around longer than most of their pop punk brethren, probably slaying at Warped Tour or something. They've got great hair, you guys! They're playing a mostly acoustic set on Monday, so come on out after work and check it out. As always, you can download the audio from the session in a few weeks from Epitonic!


We also have an in-store with Good Willsmith & Not Not Fun-alum, Angel Eyes (from Australia!) next Wednesday. We'll have more on that in next week's newsletter, but for now, you've been warned!

This EP flows from a pair of bombastic opening tracks, through the simmerging, plaintive cover of the Strawberry Switchblade's "Trees & Flowers", to the regretful ballad "Lord Knows", in which Dee Dee's voice remains rich yet crystalline, a gorgeous, toned instrument revealing an awareness of fear & misstep.
