September 8th at Black Sheep: Better Friend, Prowess, Oversleeping, Heck


Are you ready to hear about the next show going on at Black Sheep? Here it is, happening next Saturday on September 8th. We have the band Better Friend coming from Lincoln, Nebraska. To hear what they sound like, check out that player embedded below. Also on this show is Prowess, who literally just played a show here two nights ago (gosh)! Can we get enough Prowess??! Also on this bill is St. Louis emo project “Oversleeping“. Opening things up is the music of Hannah Songer aka “Heck“.

Things start at Black Sheep Saturday at 7:00 pm. Admission for this one is $7. Check out a facebook event for this show right here. Also be sure to check out our shows page for a list of other shows coming up at Black Sheep this fall!

Black Sheep Has An Instagram

Look-ee here! Here at Black Sheep / Dumb Records headquarters we recently decided to launch a new Instagram page for The Black Sheep. It’s about time we get with the times, right? Before we had lumped all of our content onto the Dumb Records Insta page – and don’t worry that page isn’t going anywhere. We felt that it would be beneficial to launch a more “official” separate page for The Black Sheep to get the word out more about upcoming shows, and also have an Instagram account that is more integrated with this website (which we plan on posting a lot more regularly this month)! Give that new Black Sheep page a “follow” right here. If you are a fan of a lot of “stupid” and/or “dumb” content, don’t forget to check out the Dumb Records twitter page from time to time.

Rockford: “Briarcliff EP”


Okay yes, we are three months late on this one but we are scrambling to get caught up sharing all of this great local Springfield music with you that has been recently coming out!! Earlier this summer Springfield indie/garage rock band Rockford dropped this five-track Briarcliff EP recorded and engineered by Kyle Noonan and Southtown Sound. You can stream those tracks on the player below. Also head over to the band’s bandcamp page where you can download the album at your own price.

Rockford does not have any shows lined up at Black Sheep at the moment, but be on the lookout for some very soon. We are working on still updating our Springfield album archive page to be caught up with 2018 soon, we promise!
