June 23rd at Black Sheep: Vinny, ~YT~, M-22, Jordan McCance, Animals With Human Names


We have something a little bit different coming up at Black Sheep this Saturday, June 23rd. We are handing over the reigns to M22TV and HISO Music for a night (yes, it says “Fest” on the flier but oh no we can not handle another full on fest right now)!!! This will be a hip hop show of sorts featuring what looks like five different artists. At the top of the bill we have “VINNY“, ~YT~, and M-22 all of which we are unable to find anything about online, and all of which are new to the Black Sheep stage! You can find a snippet of music and a new album teaser for M-22 on facebook right here. Come out to this show for a chance to hear the album in full. There’s also an artist from Farmington, Illinois – Jordan Chance. Also there is one full band that has been described to us as indie-rock, they are called Topical! and are from Macomb, Illinois. From our understanding opening things up is an artist familiar to the Black Sheep stage – Animals With Human Names (even though he is not listed on the flier).

This show kicks off at 7:00 pm on Saturday, admission is $5. Find a facebook event for the show right here. Also be sure to check out our shows page for a look at what else is coming up at Black Sheep this summer.

June 22nd at Black Sheep: Bottom Bracket (Tour Kickoff), Reaver, Stick People, Heck, Oversleeping


We have a full lineup of shows this upcoming weekend and we are now ready to start telling you all about them! That starts with a show coming up this Friday – on Friday, June 22nd (in just two days). This one is going to be the official tour kickoff for Springfield group Bottom Bracket, who are hitting the road hard and going all the way to the east coast at the end of this month / beginning of July. We’ll come back to you with B.B.’s big tour dates in another post. This show features plenty of friends of the band- including the Alton, Illinois band Reaver. Stream some of Reaver’s newest music on the player embedded below. We also have the Taylorville alternative rock band we have not seen in a minute on the bill – Stick People. How nice! At the beginning of the lineup we have Oversleeping from the St. Louis area. And also a solo performance by Hannah Songer as “HECK“.

All of that starts this Friday at 7:00 pm. Admission for this show is $6. 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 summer.
