saki newsletter 12/23/14!

Seems like this holiday season has just flown by. A few of you have taken us up on our gift suggestions. If you're still looking for last minute gifts, we've been posting suggestions every day on Facebook, or you can always just stop in and ask us! 

If you're really in a pinch, you can always take advantage of our gift certificate deal! We're offering an extra $5 for every $50 spent on gift certificates. You can't beat that!

One last reminder, we will be open for limited hours on Christmas Eve and closed all day on Christmas day. We will also be closed all day on Monday, December 29th for store inventory.

This weekend we have a special post-holiday edition of Important Records with Brandon Wetherbee! The last few have been a blast. This time we have Brandon and Rock Falls covering The Replacements, as well as Seth Vanek with members of Health and Beauty on Bjork, plus more TBA!

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.

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!
