saki newsletter 12/11/12!


Yet another amazing weekend in the books with Epitonic saki Sessions from Gnarwaals, Good Wives, Foxygen and Angel Olsen! It's times like these we have to pinch ourselves to make sure this is all really happening. We had a great turnout for Foxygen and Angel on Sunday - thank you all for coming!

This weekend may even be bigger and better than last with the opening of Ethan D'Ercole's print show "From The Rooftops" and our holiday blowout "A Very Girl Group Christmas!" Bedfellows and members of Manniquen Men will play some music for us on Friday for the opening. Kitchen Hips and Summer Girlfriends will play some originals as well as some girl group hits on Saturday. We'll have snacks, and drinks from Goose Island all weekend, but on Saturday we encourage you all to make or buy some cookies for the Christmas Cookie Potluck! We will provide other snacks, but we really want to go all out with the cookie potluck - no holds barred, people! Go nuts!

Keep an eye on the saki blog as we'll be posting our 2012 Best Of lists soon! Also, check out the upcoming events below. We've got some killer stuff coming up in the new year too!
