saki newsletter 12/9/14!

We had some technical difficulties last week, but the newsletter is BACK! First, we should take a moment to thank everyone for coming out for Important Records and RSD Black Friday. Our thanks may be belated, but it's just as sincere now as it was last week. You guys are the best!

This week is going to be another fun one. Aside from the holiday cheer that is just oozing from our store (level of holiday cheer is wholly dependent upon which little elf is working on a given day), we've got the opening reception for Bill Connors' show 'Oh Well' this Friday! Bill's work is incredible. If you're a friend of ours then you're likely a friend of You Me Them Everybody as well. Bill has done a ton of work for YMTE, so you may recognize his signature style from their posters. If you're not familiar, get on the Instagrams and check out @billconnors. The guy is amazing! If you're a fan of Ryan Duggan's Drug Factory Press, or our recent show with Mike Conway, you'll love Bill's work as well. Come join us from 6-9 on Friday. We'll have the usual snacks and drinks, plus a live set from Torture Love.

Don't forget about our holiday gift certificate deal too! 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.

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.
Whateverfloats your boat!

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 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!
