Craig Reptile: Your Sunday Sonic Sundowner writesJoin Us This Saturday for Record Store Day at saki!

Fresh on the heels of another successful event, the Eleventh Annual CHIRP Record Fair and Other Delights, CHIRP is proud to support Record Store Day, this Saturday April 20th.

One of our favorite local record stores is saki, located at 3716 W. Fullerton Ave in Chicago, and we're happy to be included in their Record Store Day festivities. Not only will the store have many exclusive record store day releases (see below), but bands including Santah, Twin Peaks, Fake Limbs and Pink Avalanche will perform, and CHIRP DJs including Blake Burkhart, Megan Frestedt and Jim Waiter will spin between sets.

The ever popular CHIRP Plinko-style game will put in an appearance, and allow players to try to win prizes from New Wave Coffee, Dill Pickle Food Co-Op, Schubas/Lincoln Hall, Metro, Provenance Food and Wine, The Empty Bottle and more!

Line up outside starting at 8:30 and Gaslight Coffee will provide free coffee to you, and Santah will play a few stripped down songs for you--  the doors open at 9 am. Bands play in-store starting at noon, and at 8 pm, Revolutions Per Minute will do a live podcast taping with Nick Rouley, Joe McAdam and Blizzard Babies!

The complete line-up and other details can be found here. Here's what saki has to say in terms of Record Store Day titles, confirmed in stock. We can only confirm that we have these titles on hand for Record Store Day. We cannot confirm how many or what the price will be. You have to show up on April 20th to find out!
