20% off this week:

Some of our staff (just one person, actually) had a little too much fun at Sasquatch this weekend. In case you're like some of us who were stuck in the tropical urban rainforest - aka Chicago -  this weekend we're offering an assortment of Sasquatch 2015 artists/records for this week's 20% off dealio! It'll be just like being at the festival - we promise! 


Staff Picks:

Tis the season of sunburns, BBQs, noticeable lack of personal hygiene, and emptying six packs whilst sitting on the stoop. Celebrate the warmth and sunshine with some new tunes! Mary has picked out some choice *~*summer jamz *~* for your listening pleasure. 

Just look for the labels! Here are just some of her picks:

Here are a couple of things you saw last week -- but we think you need to see them again! 

Dare To Be Stupid is the first collection of Ryan Duggan/Drug Factory Press poster art. It spans Ryan's work from 2006-2014 and it even has a few posters he did for saki, including the show poster from his 2012 art show, Time To Make The Doughnuts. It's kind of crazy to look through this book and recognize so many amazing posters that we've seen around town, or in friend's apartments, or even (in many cases) our OWN homes! Ryan is a one-of-a-kind artist and Dare To Be Stupid is a MUST-OWN book. To sweeten the pot you can buy one of our latest saki shirts (with Ryan's Heavy Cat design) along with Dare To Be Stupid for $30! The shirt is still good for 5% off your purchase at saki (excluding artwork) whenever you wear it in the store!

We now carry Earlove earplugs! Seriously, these things are amazing.

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. Stop in or give us a call! Keep an eye out for announcements for eligible Metro, Constellation, and Bottom Lounge shows too!
