saki Newsletter 01/20/2015

What a week! In addition to what passes for warm weather this time of year, we also had two crazy fun events with our Dastardly listening party and a split 7" release show for Regular Fucked Up People and Boring People. Dastardly's new album is not available yet, so if you didn't come you missed a chance to hear it WAY in advance, but the RFUP/BP 7" is for sale now! We highly recommend picking one up and checking out the other stuff that Already Dead has to offer.

We're also worn out this week from all those TNK shows! Protomartyr and Alvvays were our favorites. We all owe a huge thanks to Schubas, Lincoln Hall and Metro for providing free tickets for you guys as well. What a bunch of sweetie pies!

This week's new release lineup is STACKED. We're extremely excited about Universal Togetherness Band, the new Cloakroom, the Posse repress, all the Back From The Grave comps on vinyl, and of course, Sleater-Kinney's triumphant return! It's gonna be a good week for our ears.

Here's a few things we shared on Instagram and the blog this week:


Our employee, Nick Rouley, opened for Eddie Pepitone
at Lincoln Hall. That's Eddie, not Nick, but the
resemblance is striking.
We have tickets for Oshwa and Lifted Bells at Beat
Kitchen to give away! 
We also have tickets for each day of Chicago Psych
Fest at The Hideout!
Regular Fucked Up People were incredible in the
shop on Saturday!
A few of our favorites from John Bailey's show, hanging
until the end of the month! Come check it out.
We had a whole day of nothing but tapes in the store!
The reissue of the year! Currently out of stock, but more
are on the way.
saki totes are back! Use it when you shop at saki for
5% off your purchase.
Pick up these Bill Connors prints from the poster rack!
