saki newsletter 11/20/15!

Thanks to everyone who came out for Dave Segedy (Sleeping Bag) and Ovef Ow at The Burlington on Tuesday, and for Chicago Emo Night on Thursday! We're sorry that Five Pound Snap had to drop out of Tuesday's show, but we think it was still a damn good show. Congrats to the folks who won the saki giveaway at Emo Night. You all have terrible singing voices, but enjoy your gift certificate and hat anyway!

Max Clarke's show 'The View From My Summer Home In Space' is still up! Max is in New York now, but I'm sure he can still use a little extra help. So come in and buy a piece from his show!

Check out our 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!

This week we're really into the Beat Happening comp., Sun Ra, and local dudes, Clearance!

Here are a few things we were yapping about on Instagram, Facebook, etc. this week!

New tapes from Orindal Records! Nephew In The Wild and Plastic Owen Band from Advance Base are now in stock, and oh man are they good.

New batch of Hozac singles out this week!

This week we brought out the 'emo' jams of yesterday and today to celebrate Chicago Emo Night at The Burlington (every third Thursday)!

Tom Scharpling sent us these stickers for Best Show because we asked him to! What a guy.

Bill Tucker dropped off a few copies of his new LP, a compilation of previous cassette releases, a few weeks ago and we finally got around to listening to it (on this awesome lime vinyl). It's really killer slacker rock that you should check out!

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.

Staff Picks:

Adam's Pick of the Week: Steve Gunn - Boerum Palace

Originally released in '09, this was the beginning of Steve Gunn's blossoming into one of the most heralded in a new crop of American guitarists known for their fusing with traditional Americana and modern experimental guitar techinque. Everyone who has picked up his more recent albums like Time Off, Way Out Weather, or Seasonal Hire (with Black Twig Pickers) would be remiss to not clutch this gem of a reissue!

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!
