saki newsletter 7/17/15!

 *** Please keep an eye on our social media this weekend for abbreviated store hours! We are a little short staffed with Pitchfork Fest so be prepared for late openings or early closings. As of right now we plan on having normal store hours, but that may change at any time. Sorry in advance for any inconvenience! ***

Sweet Baby Jesus, we haven't posted anything on the blog since last week's newsletter. Please forgive us! Hopefully you're keeping up with us on Instagram, etc... that's where the REAL gems are. 

We'd like to thank everyone who came out for Tip Your Delivery Boy and the Barry Phipps in-store. Both were a great time and it was no nice to see you all! Come check out the art on display this month. It's all very affordable and sales benefit the Greater Chicago Food Depository.

We'll be at Pitchfork this weekend getting drunk and sun-burnt. Come say his to us in the CHIRP Record Fair tent. We'll be giving away two of these USB sticks from Carpark Records! They contain the first 100 releases from the label to celebrate Carpark's 16th anniversary.

We're very excited to present a show at The Burlington on July 23rd with Dave Davidson (Maps and Atlases), Rebecca Ryskalcsyk (from NYC, member of Bethlehem Steel) and Kø (upcoming LP on Joyful Noise)! Show up early because from 9-10pm you can get a free PBR or well drink on the saki tab!

Here are some things we were talking about on Instagram, etc. this week!

Don't ever let anyone tell you that working in a record store during a pizza-themed art opening isn't fun. Tip Your Delivery Boy: A Pizza Themed Art Show is up all this month. Come buy art with pizza in it!
 Pizza bunting is the best bunting.

 Restocks and new arrivals this week. If you haven't heard Francis The Great before, oh my god, please listen to it!

 Who wants the complete Decline of Western Civilization DVD box set? We've got it!
