saki newsletter 12/3/13!

First things first, folks - thanks for not stabbing, or macing, or tazing anyone in our store this past weekend. You all came in and peacefully bought your Record Store Day Black Friday releases in a calm and orderly fashion and we appreciate it! That's not to say we didn't have our camera phones ready... who doesn't want to be YouTube famous!? We kid, we kid. All jokes aside, we had a great time on Black Friday AND Small Business Saturday AND regular ol' Sunday. Thanks for coming out!

Coming up this weekend we have the opening reception of Arnold Klein's photography exhibit 'MsPerception' and a release party for Rookie Yearbook Two with readings by Tavi and other Chicago Rookies, and a live set from The Lemons!

Next weekend we're celebrating an awesome year of monthly Off The Record listening parties with a year-end blowout of OTRs! We'll let you know who's playing very soon, but for now mark your iCals for December 13th and 14th! It's gonna be a real cool time.

This week's vlogcastisode is going to be slightly delayed. We should have it up tomorrow. We're a little behind from the holiday. If you're reading this in your electronic mailbox, make sure you check the saki blog tomorrow afternoon to see our ugly mugs hamming it up for your, uh.... entertainment.
