saki newsletter 12/16/14!

First thing's first - don't forget about our holiday gift certificate deal! We'll add $5 for every $50 spent on gift certificates up until Christmas! Keep the $5 for yourself, or add it to the gift. We don't care! It's just a little gift from us to you.

Ok, now we'd like to thank Bill Connors, Torture Love, and everyone who came out for Bill's opening on Friday. Bill's new work is amazing and Torture Love put on a great set! Our next art opening is for John Bailey's show 'Nano Death' on January 9th.

This Friday we have Freak Happening's Year In Review! That's our monthly comedy show, Freak Happening, going over all the big events of the year, but it probably won't be that at all. Those guys can't stay on topic...

Our store employee, Robyn, has also been posting her daily Gift Picks on our various social media. Catch a few below in our Instagram update!

Here are a few things we were posting about on Instagram this past week:


It's pretty straight forward, folks. For every $50 you
spend on gift certificates with us this holiday season,
we'll add another $5 to your total. You can keep that
$5 for yourself, or you can add it to the gift.
Whatever floats your boat!
Robyn's first (unofficial) gift pick. This is the one that started
it all. The vinyl edition of the Lee Hazlewood box!

Bill Connor's show is up through this month. 
Here's a taste!
Robyn's gift pick #1: Numero Group's Local Customs:
Cavern Sound. A fantastic comp. from start to finish 
and one that seems to be slept on a bit this year!

Robyn's gift pick #2: "One of the greatest marriages of 
rock band and orchestra that I've ever heard." - BECK
Highly giftable.
Handsome Family vinyl reissues have arrived!

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! Keep an eye out for announcements for eligible Metro and Bottom Lounge shows too!


Spotify listening station:
These days record stores don't get a ton of promos from 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!
