saki newsletter 10/23/15!

Max Clarke's 'Pizza Astronaut' print from our pizza-themed art show was easily the most popular piece. We've invited Max back for his very own show, which opens tomorrow! We'll have the usual food and drinks, plus live sets from Max's band The Cut Worms, as well as Wet Wallet

Saturday, October 24th from 6-9pm

We have another 'saki presents' show coming up at The Burlington next month. Our old pals from Bloomington, Sleeping Bag are going to be in town. They'll touring with Five Pound Snap out of Detroit, and our local favs Ovef Ow will round out the bill. We'll probably have some kind of deal for free drinks, and maybe some saki giveaways and/or DJ sets, so keep checking the newsletter or the Facebook event for more info!

We're pretty excited to offer a new feature in our weekly newsletters. From now on we're going to include a Spotify playlist of some of our favorite tracks from this week's releases (the ones that are available on Spotify at least). Let us know what you think! Do you think we left anything important out? Did we pick the wrong track from your favorite release? We want to know. You can contact us via Twitter, Facebook, or email us at info@sakistore.net. We have other playlists available on Spotify as well. Follow us, check out the playlists, and keep an eye on what we're playing in the store! There's a ton of good stuff this week. Some of it you probably already know, but here are a few you may not (and we think you should): Beak>, Doug Hream Blunt, Corrections House, Upset, Hinds, and Kowloon Walled City! Next week's gonna be a good one too, with the Ork Recrods box set, Built To Spill, Car Seat Headrest, Dads, Sweet Talk, and more.

 Here are a few things we were yammering about on Instagram, etc. this week:

As the weather is getting colder, don't forget you can pick up a saki knit cap that will not only keep your tip extra toasty, it's also good for 5% off your purchase any time you wear it in the store! Same goes for any other saki-branded merchandise, FYI.

 We celebrated International Cassette Store day last Saturday! Check our Instagram for a full rundown of some of our favorite tapes.

 The Busy Beaver Button-O-Matic is back in stock with all new buttons!

 We're going to bring in some stuff from an amazing DC rare boogie/funk/R&B label called People's Potential Unlimited. Go have a listen on their website or Soundcloud and let us know if there's anything in particular you want us to bring in!

We're still on our autumn music kick and we hope it never ends... here's a few more picks to fit the season.

 We moved the Calvin Johnson mixtapes from the counter to make some space, but we still have a few left. You can find them on the tape rack.

This is our new headless friend. We think he needs a name. What do you think?
