saki newsletter 1/29/13!

We need a nap... what a long, but rewarding weekend! We had yet another wildly successful Creative Control on Friday night, Note and Bolts/Epitonic saki Sessions with Coins, Scott Cortez and Pink Frost on Saturday (look out for a N&B/saki record tape release of Scott and Pink Frost's performances in the next few months), in-stores from Mekillerrun and She Speaks In Tongues on Sunday, and THEN we had our very first Off The Record listening party on Monday with Brokeback playing their new LP Brokeback and the Black Rock live and in full! We're some lucky sons de guns over here.

As always, we'll keep it going this weekend, starting with The Punch Up at Lincoln Hall. It's not at saki, but we had a hand in booking the comics who will be making fun of Robo Cop and Beverly Hills Cop! We did this last month (Punching Up Die Hard and Gremlins) and it was a real hoot! It's FREE, it's fun, and it's at Lincoln Hall. See you there!

On Friday we've got the opening reception for Amanda Olbrys' show, Balance with an in-store performance from Blast Beats! As usual, we've got you covered for food and drinks. Just come hang out with us and check out Amanda's lovely photographs!

Next week we have another installment of IMBG: The International Movie Betting Game at Schubas, followed by our next Off The Record listening party with Trouble In Mind Records a few days later! Check out the Facebook events for more info, or wait for next week's newsletter.

A few other reminders:

We've got a few more tickets left to give away for Santah, Carbon Tigers, Audiences and The Kuhls at House of Blues on Friday! All you have to do is purchase a Santah or Carbon Tigers record from saki and they're yours.

Don't forget about our weekly new release sale too! This week we've got Yo La Tengo, Speck Mountain and Ty Segall and Mikal Cronin's Reverse Shark Attack for 20% off!

Our Epitonic saki Session with Father John Misty is up!

... and we've got some great used records for you to check out!

Before this Metz, France combo was fully formed it was the work of one man, who cranked out 5 7"s in the space of 2 years.

Taking 12 tracks from 5 early singles & adding 2 unreleased songs this is a release for the completist or newcomer alike. Ltd to 500
