saki newsletter 4/2/13!

All fooling aside, it's the saki newsletter! We had a blast last week with another Punch Up at Lincoln Hall (with the staff of The Late Live Show), Creative Control and a live episode of the RPM podcast! Thanks to Lincoln Hall, The Late Live Show, all the comics from Creative Control and Nick and Joe from RPM. We can't wait to do it all again!

This week we've got two transformative events at saki. The opening reception for Paul Richardson and Mary Rothlisberger's show, MORE LIKE AN OCEAN is on Friday, followed by a very special event on Saturday, Show Me The Jerrys! Paul and Mary's show is based on pieces they call "windshowers" which will be installed throughout the store. Ryley Walker will also join us for a live set. It's going to be a very special night!

But wait, it gets better... on Saturday we're hosting Show Me The Jerrys! a benefit gala for Everything Is Terrible! We're celebrating the 5,000th VHS copy of Jerry Maguire being donated to EIT by turning saki into a Jerry Maguire pop up shop and inviting some of our stand up comic friends to entertain. We're encouraging guest to donate to EIT's fundraiser for their two new web series and to either dress up, wear red, or both! We can't wait to see everyone come out for this!

Later in the month we have our Off The Record listening party for April with Implodes new record Recurring Dream and of course, Record Store Day!

Vinyl version. ROBERT HAMPSON resurrects his beloved project that laid the foundations during the 1990s for much of the love of abstract guitar treatments in electronic music throughout the 2000s.

Label:  Fat Possum 
Format:  CD 
Catalog Number:  fap12902cd 
Release Date:  April 02, 2013 
Combining the driving hooks of the Wipers, slashing riffs of Husker Du, & melodic-on-the-edge-of-control vocals of early Dinosaur Jr., they reinvent early- to mid-'80s SST-style hardcore punk & '90s lo-fi Pacific Northwest influences for a new generation. Here they've added some atmospheric fuzz-jams reminiscent of Neil Young & Crazy Horse & diversified their songwriting to add elements of offbeat songwriting like labelmate Townes Van Zandt

Label:  Razorcake 
Format:  7" 
Catalog Number:  razor020 
Release Date:  March 19, 2013 
What happens whem the term "post-punk" is used descriptively & not just as an elitist badge to differentiate oneself with "punk"?

m b v cover art
  My Bloody Valentine    m b v
Label:  MBV 
Format:  CD 
Catalog Number:  mbv01cd 
"There's a rush of feeling inside their music so intense it creates a kind of paralysis. Music swirls & moves in & out of phase, voices float by, half memory & half anticipation, & you're never quite sure how all the parts fit together. You get lost in it, & if you're wired a certain way that mixture of desire & confusion is easy to map on to the wider world. For 22 years, the only way to get there was through Loveless & its associated EPs; now there's another path, one many of us never expected to find. That it's this successful in spite of it all is something we never had a right to expect" - Pitchfork (9.1 - Best New Music). CD comes housed in a gatefold card sleeve w/ 8 page booklet
