TWO weeks from today on Saturday, October 14th the Black Sheep Battle of the Bands will be taking place – a little different this year since we are doing things in October instead of in the summer. As usual, two winners will be chosen – one picked from a panel of judges to receive a free demo recording at Southtown Sound recording studio behind Black Sheep. The other crowd voting award will be given a slot on a bigger show coming up later this year, possibly the Black Sheep Holiday Show? We have a whole seven acts lined up this year, here they are:
PUFF PUFF POSEIDON
COOP DE GRACE
There you have it, 3 of those are solo projects and 3 are full bands, one might be some sort of electronic duo(?). ALL of these are new to the Black Sheep stage, which is very cool! Puff Puff Poseidon is based out of Decatur, Coop De Grace is based out of Carlinville, the rest are based out of here in Springfield. (Maybe Hannah Songer is back and forth between here and Bloomington). Let’s all come out and support these new up and coming acts and see what they have to offer!
Since there are so many acts on the battle now, it will be starting at 6:00 pm. Admission for those not performing is $5. Find a facebook event for this one right here. Also be sure to check out our shows page for a look at what else is coming up at Black Sheep this fall.
