saki newsletter 5/13/14!

Hey, guys! Wow! What a weekend! We had another Once In A Lifetime at Comfort Station where we got to see Kaley Cuoco in a fat suit and Caroline Rhea totally pretending to be her aunt for that sweet Lifetime paycheck. PLUS we had an in-store/record release party with Chris Kramer from Slushy and Luke Tokyo Drifter (Kenny from Magic Milk). We were celebrating the release of Slushy's new LP and cassette on Grabbing Clouds. You can now purchase that record, plus a few other Grabbing Clouds tapes from saki! Also, we had pizza! PIZZA, you guys!

This weekend we have in-store with Royal Pines and Crippled Masters featuring a reading by Leslie Parry from her new book Church of Marvels! You don't even have to read it. She'll read it TO YOU.

We're beyond excited to announce that saki is presenting a show with Nat Baldwin and Pillars and Tongues at Constellation on May 29th! If you've followed saki for a while now you know we're BIG fans of Pillars and Tongues. It's just a cherry on top for us that Nat Baldwin (from Dirty Projectors) is headlining this show! Nat's new solo record In The Hollows has been on repeat around here and we were big fans of his older records, People Changes and MVP, as well! If you purchase any of Nat's or Pillars and Tongues' records we can add you do the guest list while our spots last! Buy a record, see an awesome show for FREE. We are hooking the freak UP.

This week's vlogcastisode features music from Cretin Stompers, Heavy Times and Epicycle in celebration of Hozac Blackout Fest this weekend at The Empty Bottle! ALL Hozac titles are 20% off at saki this week! Also, we did not PLAN on wearing all back for Blackout Fest. It just happened that way. We're goth as heck, mannnn.

This week, to celebrate Hozac Blackout Fest, we're offering ALL Hozac titles for 20% off! Here are just a few we recommend...

The People's Temple - Musical Garden CD and LP

A collective of songs put together w/ vastly different styles, due to the sheer abundance of material, yet an impressively cohesive arrangement of their always expanding musical strains.

Ruined Fortune - S/T CD and LP

Heavy-glitter/garbage punk moves from members of SOUTHERN COMFORT, BED WETTIN' BAD BOYS, CIRCLE PIT, MODEL CITIZEN, and countless more. An album that has an agenda similar to LIVE, SINGLES, UNRELEASED-era ROYAL TRUX or the first couple of ALTERNATIVE TV records in its love of rock'n'roll while simultaneously aiming for something beyond.

Epicycle - You're Not Gonna Get It: 78-81 CD and LP

Like a snotty bottle rocket shout out of The Damned's dressing room and straight into the gut of Cheap Trick, these sorely underappreciated teen punk pioneers were angry, young, and unstoppable. This comp presents the original punch the band was trying to deliver w/ 3 incredible singles and tracks from their sole LP, along with some pre-razored demos from their earliest sessions.
