saki newsletter 11/18/14!

Hey folks, we're just like you. We put on our long underwear one leg at a time, and then our pants one leg at a time, then our shirt, and then our sweater, and then maybe another layer, and then a coat, and then a scarf, and then a hat, and then some gloves. What we're saying is we're just like you and we're freaking cold. Fortunately for us, we work in this nice heated building. Fortunately for ALL of us, we have a ton of awesome new releases this week and some pretty great stuff going on in our heated shop this weekend!

On Friday we have Freak Happening Gives Thanks, our monthly comedy show's salute to the tastiest of holidays. We don't know exactly what Nick and Goodrich have in store for us, but we know that it will involve Danny Kallas, Mike Sheehan and Rebecca O'Neal, and probably one or both of our hosts eating a turkey leg in their underwear (pure speculation).

On Saturday, we welcome back the hip-hop collective Onsoru (The Terra Godz), formerly known as Terra 5! Blaise B. and Luis Mendez will be playing support with DJ sets by Jezi The Dishwasha. We're basically letting these guys take over the store. They've always been a good time in the past, so come check it out!

Oh, and next week is Thanksgiving/RSD Black Friday! We'll be closed on Thanksgiving and open for normal store hours on Black Friday. We will have a fair amount of the RSD BF releases, but no big in-stores or anything like that. We'll probably run a nice big sale on regular store stock though, so stay tuned for next week's newsletter for more info!

Here's a recap of what went on in the shop this past week, via our Instagram (@sakistore)...

Bill Connors' show (opening Dec. 12th) finally got a name!
More used vinyl hit the racks this weekend!
We're still pricing up used vinyl so check back all week!
J Fernandez and Famous Laughs played in the shop and
we picked up a few copies of J Fernandez's Memorize 
Now for the shop, aka for YOU!
Some days you get the good promos...
We listened to William Onyeabor's catalog pretty much all
week on repeat. Pick up the Vol. 1 and 2 box sets!
We got a very small amount of copies of Alexander Heir's
book for Sacred Bones, Death Is Not The End

Ticket Giveaways:


Buy a release from any band playing an upcoming Empty Bottle, Schubas or Lincoln Hall show and we can add you to the guest list. A lot of upcoming shows are no longer eligible, but it never hurts to ask. Stop in or give us a call!


Spotify listening station:


These days record stores don't get a ton of promos from bands and labels like the good ol' days, but we know that you still want a chance to listen to a lot of things before you make the decision to buy. To help you out with that we've created a Spotify Listening Station in the store. Sounds fancy, right? It's not. We just bought a burner phone and put literally nothing on it but the Spotify app!


If you find yourself flipping through the racks and you realize that you'd like to listen to something before you buy it, just ask at the counter and we'll pull out some headphones and Burnice (that's what we named our burner phone) so you can have a listen!
