Another week in the books! We participated in Spoon's Vinyl Gratificiation promotion (we still have 10"s left so you can have one with purchase of the new Spoon record, which is probably one of their best in a while), we announced a bunch of great Empty Bottle ticket giveaways, and we got plenty of good stuff in! We also got to hang out at our favorite bar for Neon Marshmallow, and, uh, well, that's mostly all we did this past weekend. It was great!
Saki will be closed this Thursday (August 7th) for store inventory. We hate to do that to you, but we hate doing inventory even more, so let's call it even! We apologize in advance for any inconvenience.
This Friday we have the opening reception for Miles Jackson's 'Hired Hands' show. Most of his stuff is up now so you can come check it out if you just can't wait, but on Friday we'll have some snacks and drinks for you to enjoy. As always, you can also B Your Own B. Consider all the free stuff a consolation for being closed on Thursday. It'll be more fun that way!
