This Friday we're hosting a fundraiser at saki Hurricane Sandy victims. Joe McAdam, who produces and hosts are monthly comedy/variety show, Creative Control, is also producing this show. Some of his family members who live in the NY/NJ area have been completely displaced by flooding. Joe asked for our help to raise some money to get them back on there feet and we couldn't say no. We'll have a bunch of great Chicago comics and music from Gabe Liebowitz of Dastardly, as well as a whole bunch of auction/raffle prizes to give away. Please come and enjoy the show and donate some money to a very worthy cause! If you can't makie it, but you would still like to donate, you can do so by going to Joe McAdam's site and clicking on the PayPal link!
Our next event after the fundraiser is, not so oddly enough, Creative Control with Joe McAdam on the 30th! This month we've got a bunch of other Chicago comics, and one former Chicagoan visiting from LA, along with music from Oshwa! If you haven't been to Creative Control yet, you're missing out! It's one of the best comedy showcases in Chicago. This month we also have our friends from Powell Brew House coming out to pour some of their delicious homebrewed beer for you! If you don't like homebrew you can still BYOB, but if you don't like homebrew, what are you doing in my country? Get out!
There's a bunch of other good stuff coming up in December. We'll give you more on that later, but for now check out the listings below!
Don't forget that we are now offering select new releases for 20% off each week at saki! This week, you can snag Sonic Youth, Philip Glass & Killer Mike for 20% off!
