saki newsletter 4/30/13!

How y'all doin' on this not-at-all-like-Chicago-weather Tuesday!? Oh... stuck at work? Yeah, us too. Well, the memories of this past weekend are kind of helping with our cabin fever. We had an awesome weekend with Creative Control on Friday, Jon Lindsay, Canasta, and Kathleen Judge's opening with Man Is Man on Saturday, and Scriptreaders on Sunday! 

Sleep? Who needs it! Well, maybe we do. We don't have anything planned until this Sunday which is weird for us. We don't even know what to do with ourselves until then! Maybe you should come hang out and listen to music with us all week. That'd be cool, right!?

Anywho, on Sunday we've got the final (for now) edition of Scriptreaders with scripts from Melody Kamali and The Late Live Show's Dan Ronan! If you haven't made it out for any of the Scriptreaders events this past month, they are a BLAST. Don't miss the opportunity to hear some of these scripts before they become big hollywood movies or mildly successful web series!

The next thing we have at saki after that is our Off The Record listening party for May. We'll have an announcement for that coming up very shortly. You're gonna love it!

Oh, and if you have a band and you'd like to play at saki sometime in May, or if you have any other ideas for cool/fun events we could host, shoot us a message!

Stay real, homies!

Sunday, May 5th @ 4pm
