saki newsletter 10/22/13!

Heyyyyyyy everyonnnne! First, we'd like to apologize for canceling Quasi's Off the Record this past Friday. Sam has been sick and he didn't want to risk throwing his voice out before their Schubas show. We were just as bummed, if not more so, than you were! Fortunately, that wasn't the only thing we had going on this weekend. Did you make it out for our special midnight screening of the Devil's Diary at Lincoln Hall?? We learned a lot about how to not be a teenage witch, and also how not to be a good actor in movies. Good times!

This weekend we've got a special Halloween edition of Freak Happening with Nick Rouley and Goodrich Gevaart! This month they've brought along the Puterbaughs, John Eisenrich, Sean White, Chad Briggs, Jason Earl Folks and more. Wear your costumes, guys! We probably won't wear ours, but that's just because we don't know how to PARTY. Do you? Can you teach us??

On Sunday we have an in-store with Paul Leonard's Bora Bora and Coins. Bora Bora is a newly formed four piece that fleshes out some of the amazing, ambient psych-folk songs that Paul has been working on as a solo artist. Coins are old friends of saki, having played here a handful of times already. Their haunting vocal melodies get us every time.

The CHIRP Record Crawl will also be making a stop at saki at 4pm on Sunday! You can redeem your 20% discount at any point during the day, but the official stop time at saki is 4. More details on how to join the crawl here!

Next week is going to be bonkers too, with a special Halloween night stand up show presented by former Chicagoan, CJ Toledano, the opening reception of Nathan Vernau's art show, 'Figure Out,' and what is sure to be an incredible Off The Record with Bottomless Pit!
