TVD Recommends:
A Very Girl Group Holiday Party at Saki Records, 12/15

This Saturday, Saki Records will be hosting their third annual holiday party with a little help from Chicago’s Summer Girlfriends and LA’s Kitchen Hips. Coined “A Very Girl Group Christmas,” the free, all ages party will take place after hours at Logan Square’s Saki Records (3716 W Fullerton).

Inspired by the iconic A Christmas Gift for You from Phil Spector and hosted by “Phil” himself, drinks will be provided by Goose Island. Kicking off at 7:00 PM, Summer Girlfriends and Kitchen Hips will be playing special arrangements of holiday music along with their own original songs.

Between sets, the staff of Saki will be spinning music to provide background for the night’s many other activities including a holiday photo booth, presents, complimentary drinks, and perhaps most important of all, a cookie potluck.

If you’re unfamiliar with Summer Girlfriends, the all-female pop-rockers released their nostalgic debut album, Shockwaves, on Addenda Records in June.


You can grab a copy of the LP on lavender wax for $12 through Addenda’s website, and check out the newest video release from the album, “Goth Beach Party,” above.

Unfortunately, I’m not too familiar with Kitchen Hips, but the minimalist, psychedelic folk music found on their August demo provides a very personal, banjo-fueled calm. Download a free copy of the demo album, Tapered Apron from Bandcamp, or get a limited edition handmade CD for $7.
