saki newsletter 8/13/13!


You guuuuuys, what a great weekend! We had an art opening for Kirstie Shanley, another saki U event with The Recyclery AND an awesome in-store/Epitonic saki Session with Meat Wave and Geronimo! 

Kirstie's photos are up until the end of the month. You should definitely come check them out. She takes live band photography to a whole other level! You can also pick up releases from any of the artists pictured in her photos for 20% off all this month! SALE! DEAL! YEAH!

saki U was a pleasure yet again. Fro from the Recyclery is an excellent teacher. He taught us things about our bikes that we didn't even know we could know and we all learned how to patch an inner tube! We'll let you know when we're having another saki U event, but in the meantime you should all go check out the Recyclery. Get a bike, take a class, just go hang out and marvel at the awesomeness of it!

Sunday's session with Meat Wave and Geronimo! was just a treat for us, personally. We love both of those bands and they did NOT disappoint. The Chicago Reader even came out to interview the bands and film their performances for their new Soundcheck series, so keep an eye out for that and on Epitonic for the full audio from the session!

Tomorrow (Wednesday), we have another Once In A Lifetime movie/comedy night at Lincoln Hall! We'd love to see each and every one of you there. We know that's a lot to ask, but it's for your own good! You'll get to see a terrible Lifetime movie where Rob Lowe overacts like a muh-fudger as he tries to channel Drew Peterson. It's awful! It's great! It's everything you've ever wanted in a Lifetime movie. To make it even better, we'll have our friends The Puterbaugh Sisters, Natalie Jose, and Chad Briggs along for color commentary throughout the film. We cannot wait to hear the Puterbaugh's improvised songs about Rob Lowe. We all know it's coming... Come on out! It's only $5 and Lincoln Hall is offering $3 white wine spritzers for all you cool moms out there!
