Yesterday we told you what we have lined up at Black Sheep this Saturday – a 217 Showcase featuring hip hop and R&B from the area. Looks like you all have options for great shows going on in town that night! Our friends over at The Radon Lounge are putting on a big event, which will also be the first show of the season for them since last spring. (The Springfield house venue usually takes a break during the summer). This time the basement venue is bringing in big Chicago Topshelf Records band Ratboys. Stream the newest music by Ratboys on the player below. This show also features quite the lineup of other groups. This includes Knotts from Cincinnati, Ohio. Also a newer local singer/songwriter called “Flunkie“. Opening things up is a new local hip hop project with a live backing band called Yung Magic. Also The Radon Lounge has been throwing featured artists and local businesses into the mix with their shows – this one features art and books by “Two Long Ears“.
All of that starts over at The Radon Lounge at 7:00 pm this Saturday. Admission is $10. Check out a facebook event for that one right here. Also be sure to check out our Springfield shows page for a list of shows going on outside of Black Sheep that we will hopefully update later today.
