saki newsletter 6/4/13!

I'd like to start with a little fair warning: if you come to saki in the next month, you will hear a lot of dick jokes... especially tomorrow night. Our friend, and Chicago comic, Chris Stephens is hosting a new show at saki called The Original Dings of Dongedy! If you haven't figured it out by now, that's an all dick joke revue. We think it's going to be terrible but in a very funny way. You should come see this train wreck!

On Friday, we have the opening reception for our June artist, Emily Haasch! Emily is giving us the honor of showcasing some of her new work at saki. Take the opportunity to meet the artist, grab some little snacky snacks and maybe a little wine on our tab. Divino Nino will be playing a live set as well.

On Sunday, we're hosting a few in-store performances from Old Town School instructors to promote their summer classes. Each class will be limited to a few weeks and focuses on a specific artist or record. Charles Kim and Lisa DeRosia will be here to play a few songs from XTC, School House Rock, and Burt "m-----fuggin'" Bacharach!

After that, on June 15th, we've got another installment of our Off The Record series with none other than the legendary Man... or Astro-Man! The band will play a few songs live and we'll have some free food and DJ sets from Chunklet DJs Adam Reach and Ben Johnson! Some would say that Off The Record thing is the coolest thing we've done at saki. We'd argue that, but only a little. We've done plenty of other cool stuff too!

We'll finish the month out with another Senorita Weiner's event saki (in keeping with our June "dick joke" theme) and a few Epitonic saki Sessions from Sewingneedle, The New Diet, and Hospital Ships!
