October 31st at Black Sheep: MAC, Graveswitcher, Brute Force, Glower, Foam Fangers


Have we really not yet made a post for THE Black Sheep Halloween show happening this upcoming Wednesday??? Whoopsies! Well, if you hadn’t figured it out already- we are hosting a show on Halloween. Rumor has it that the Chili Bowl Mullet man will be there (first the mayor, and now this???). This one features a stacked lineup of bands from the area. Starting from the top of that list… we have MAC – doing a set of original material this time around. We also have hardcore band Graveswitcher (very Halloween-themed name). Right in the middle we have a newer St. Louis band called Brute Force, which you can find streaming on the player embedded below. Before them is Glower– three piece grunge/indie band featuring a new lineup. And opening things up is the wild & rowdy punk band Foam Fangers.

This starts at 7:00 pm on Halloween, which means you should probably show up wearing a costume. Admission is $5. Find a facebook event for the show right here. Also be sure to check out our shows page for a good look at what else is coming up at Black Sheep the rest of this year.

Tonight at Black Sheep: Mobile Deathcamp, MAC (as The Misfits), U.S.M.A., Champagne Cafe, Nethersphere


It’s the weekend before Halloween! There is so much going on in town this weekend that we can hardly keep up! And there is a big show going on at Black Sheep tonight for all you punk and metal fans. We’ve had the lineup change up a few times on us, and what we are left with is a very stacked five-band show. Tonight we have the band Mobile Deathcamp returning to the Springfield for the first time in nearly five years. Mobile Deathcamp features an ex member of popular metal group GWAR. Stream their music on the player below. The other big feature band on this show is the band MAC – performing as popular horror punk band, The Misfits. Before that we’ve got Uncle Sam’s Mutagenic Children. Then is a brand new band from Jacksonville, Illinois playing some punk/metal that we don’t know a whole lot about called “Champagne Cafe.” Opening things up is a last minute addition of metal rockers also from the Jacksonville area, Nethersphere.

This starts tonight right at 7:00 pm. For admission we are now doing a sliding scale of $7-10, you pick. Find a facebook event for this one right here. And we are about to update the shows page on our website, we promise!
