saki newsletter 4/8/14!

This is the calm before the storm, guys! By next week we'll be in full Record Store Day meltdown mode and there's no way that it won't come through in our newsletter, so enjoy this one. In fact, it might event start before we finish this newsletter. We'll see!

Anyway, we had a super fun time this past weekend with Landland's opening on Friday. A lot of our old screen printer friends came out to say hi and we were all treated to a live set by Sonnenzimmer's Nick Butcher! Fun, fun stuff! You can come check out Landland's work all this month. They're very affordably priced so treat yourself to one or two.

We're keeping the fun going this weekend with Once In A Lifetime (now at Comfort Station)! We're watching the Kirsten Dunst classic 'Fifteen and Pregnant' with Candy Lawrence, Katie McVay and Natalie Jose doing goof-em-ups! It's... gonna... be... great!

We also have a pair of tickets to give away for Dean Wareham's solo show at 7pm on Friday night at the Old Town School! You're all cray-cray for letting those go unclaimed for this long. Seriously, get it together.

Did you hear about our Record Store Day in-store marathon presented by BV Chicago!? You can read all about it, and everything else that's going on at saki on April 19th, 2014 HERE. We'll be adding more info regularly in the next week and a half, so keep checking back! For now just marvel at the awesomeness of that in-store marathon lineup.

In this week's vlogcatisode we hear some Protomartyr and Handsome Family while making weird noises with our mouths and such. It's fun! Right?? Please tell us it's fun... we need the validation.
