November 5th (Monday) at Black Sheep: Alchemist Review Presents Open Mic Night


What’s this? In the string of shows we are currently in (it is looking like six shows in a seven day time period including one show at the CFP, the one off-night in that streak with no shows is tonight)- on Monday, November 5th we have an Open Mic Night happening at Black Sheep. This one is not in fact your typical open mic night that we usually hold at Black Sheep or Dumb – this one is being organized by UIS group The Alchemist Review. We welcome any UIS or LLCC groups organizing events in our space! How great! This open mic is being formatted a little bit differently – time slots are only five minutes and it looks like they are going rapid fire from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm and the group welcomes poets, song writers, short skits, and more. We have a feeling time slots might even all be filled up, but you can email to inquire more.

This starts at Black Sheep this upcoming Monday at 7:00 pm. We think it’s free? Find a facebook event for this one right here. Also check out our shows page for a look at what else is coming up in the near future.

November 4th (Sunday) at CFP: Frail Body, Capitol Offense, Final Order, Graveswitcher, Crowning


This weekend is all sorts of crazy packed with shows going on in town starting with the show that happened last night. This one is happening this upcoming Sunday, November 4th at the CFP house. This one is for the touring act Frail Body from Rockford, Illinois up north. Cool! Also on this show is hardcore band Final Order from right here home grown and raised. Also homegrown hardcore and raised is Graveswitcher who just played here last night. Other than that, there’s Capitol Offense (hardcore heavy band) from Decatur. And opening things up it looks like… Crowning (no, actually they probably wouldn’t be opening up), from Chicago.

That is your show. Things start at 7:00 pm over there at The CFP, sorry we can’t tell you where the house is on there. $5 for the touring bands. Find a facebook event for that one right here. Also check out our Springfield shows page for a list of shows going on outside of Black Sheep (we are working on).
