Speaking of Saki, Chicago artist Ryan Duggan (who has done most of Maps' art) will be exhibiting a new show of his, Time to Make Doughnuts, centered around his gig-poster work. The opening takes place tomorrow night (April 6), at 7PM; refreshments will be served. Duggan's work will hang in the shop for the remainder of the month.
