saki newsletter 12/17/13!

Oh man, what a bittersweet weekend! On the one hand, we had two incredible Off The Record parties with four of our favorite bands, but on the other hand, they were likely the last OTRs, at least for a little while. Our deal with the city's Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events is up, but we are talking with DCASE and Elastic Arts to work on some similar future events. We're very excited to see what will come of that! For now, we would just like to thank Evan Hydzik, Ryley Walker, Pillars and Tongues, Den, Fake Limbs, Melissa Geils and Provenance Food and Wine for helping us put on such great events this past weekend! We'd also like to thank the band Marrow for playing an in-store on Sunday. We would tell you to go see them at Schubas on Thursday, but that show is SOLD OUT, so congrats Marrow!

Things will obviously be slowing down a little over the next few weeks with the holidays and all, but tomorrow night (Wednesday) we have another Once In A Lifetime movie night at Lincoln Hall! The folks at Everything Is Terrible are supplying one of Tori Spelling's best works, Co-Ed Call Girl and we've got Kristin Clifford, Andy Fleming and Katie McVay on the mic's providing hilarious commentary. Come for the awful movie and the funny comedians, stay for the $3 white wine spritzers! Show starts at 8!

After the holidays we've got a very special Freak Happening, not at its regularly scheduled time. Instead of doing a show on the last Friday in December we've moved it to January 3rd. Different date, same dumb comedy show! It's been a while since Nick's been half naked on stage, so if we all pray real hard until January 3rd maybe we can make it happen! On the 4th we have the opening reception for our January art show with Homeroom Chicago. The night will double as an art opening and listening party for their latest Ten x Ten release, pairing ten musicians with ten visual artists. It's going to be a good'n!

Make sure you check out our 'store hours' page on the blog to stay on top of when we'll be closed over the holiday season! For example, we're closing at 6pm tonight for our staff holiday party. Now you know!
