saki newsletter 11/6/12!

Hey there, nice people! We'd like to thank Father John Misty, The Orwells, Epitonic, Aquarium Drunkard, Autumn Tone, Sub Pop & all the people who came out for last Monday's in-store! We were at full capacity and both bands put on an awesome show! Were you lucky enough to catch FJM at Lincoln Hall the next night? It was one of the best shows we've seen this year! We'd also like to thank Kevin Coutts and everyone who came out for his opening this past Friday! It was clear from the turnout that Kevin is loved by many. We had a great time!

We're kind of inadvertently taking it easy around here for the next few weeks. There are two possible Epitonic saki Sessions in the works, but nothing is confirmed yet, so keep an eye out on all the social media in case one of those gets pinned down at the last minute... if they do, you won't want to miss them!

The next thing on our schedule is a show that we help put together at The Burlington this Saturday night. We've got Louisville, KY's Seluah (members of Rachel's & Boom Bip) playing with recent Chicago transplant, Circuit Des Yeux & post-rockers, Sea Hero (also Louisville-based)! This is going to be a heavy, gloomy show, so get ready to get real awesome-sad with us! We'll be spinning some tunes out in the front bar for most of the night as well. We'd love to see you there!

If that show isn't your speed, we've also offering guest list spots for a bunch of upcoming Empty Bottle shows, including Grass Widow this Friday Thursday! Check the blog for details on that, and don't forget that we offer a running promotion with Schubas/Lincoln Hall where you can get on the guest list for most shows just by buying records at saki!

Also, don't forget you can pick up certain new releases for 20% OFF at saki each week. This week we're offering the vinyl reissue of Califone's "Sometimes Good Weather Follows Bad People," the debut 7" from Delaware Duo, Mean Lady, and we're going to continue last week's sale on Andy Stott's new one, "Luxury Problems" for one more week!
