There are big weeks, there are gigantic weeks, and there are absolutely fucking humongous weeks.
And The Saturday Knights are about to have an absolutely fucking humongous week. Why you may ask?
1. Tomorrow, June 24th (there’s something else going on that night too…) The Saturday Knights will drop their absolutely amazing debut LP, Mingle (featuring the likes of famed Nirvana producer Jack Endino, Kim Thayil of Soundgarden, The Dap-Kings, The Muscle Shoal Horns). It’s a huge, fun album that breaks genre boundaries while consistenly plastering a shit-eating smile on your face. It’ll be the Seattle summer record of the year – no doubt in our minds. You can pre-order it right here.
2. If you’re interested in checking out the album before purchasing (though you can trust us on this one) two of our favorite blogs, KEXP and My Old Kentucky Blog will be co-hosting a streaming listening party for the album. Each blog will stream one half of this dynamic video, as well as present for the first time ever, the amazing video for “’45″ (featuring Jack Endino on drums). Again, tomorrow this amazing blogs will be giving you a chance to hear the album for the first time, well, ever.

3. Tomorrow, June 24th (we said it was a huge week, didn’t we?) The Saturday Knights will be opening for the world famous Wu-Tang giant, The RZA at Showbox SODO. Though this could be construed as cool enough, TSK has brought together a large group of talented musicians (including members of Kay Kay and His Weathered Underground and Wild Orchid Children) to form an eleven piece back-up band featuring singers, guitarists, bassists, and a huge horn section. It will be magical and you do not want to miss it.
4. But if you must, then you can’t miss Friday’s CD release party at Nectar. Not only will The Saturday Knights be performing their second show with a full eleven-piece band, but the world famous Budos Band will be opening for them. Yup, The Saturday Knights, an eleven piece band, and a performance by The Budos Band – this show is going to be legendary.
So their you go, you want The Saturday Knights? You got the fucking Saturday Knights.
