November 10th at Black Sheep: KaBass, Mario, Ghost, Kid Nightmare


What’s up! Are you ready to hear what we have in store at Black Sheep next weekend? We are mixing things up and have this big electronic / dubstep show going on believe it or not. This is happening this upcoming Saturday, November 10th. Maybe it’s time for you to check out something truly new going on in the Springfield live music scene. Why not? This show features long running Springfield electronic project KaBass. We also have “Mario” aka “Funky House”? Who is also based right here in Springfield. Another group on this bill is “Kid Nightmare” coming from St. Louis. You can check out a 25 minute long piece by Kid Nightmare on the player below. The last group on the bill is “Ghost” – which apparently is some hip hop from Peoria! All sorts of great things going on!

This show starts at 7:00 pm typical show time and is just $5. Check out a facebook event for this one right here. Also be sure to check out our shows page for a look at what else we’ve got coming up at Black Sheep for the rest of this year.

Boon: “Social Anxylophone”


We are a little late on this one, but we figured a lot of you probably still don’t know about this release that came out here in Springfield earlier this summer – so here is a post for it! Local group “boon” – may be going by a different name “Juner Boon” for this release – released a new seven-track group of songs called Social Anxylophone at the beginning of August. Check out those songs streaming on the player below. This makes the band’s fourth release following “1st Street” last year and since they started in 2011.

Boon the band is very mysterious – they have not played any shows since Downhome Music Festival back in August and they do not have anything lined up as far as we can tell. We’ve added this release to our Springfield album archive – go check that page out!

Tonight at CFP: Frail Body, Crowning, Capitol Offense, Final Order, Graveswitcher


Hi, here we are on this dreary Sunday continuing our crazy six-day streak full of shows. Tonight there is nothing going on at Black Sheep – but there is a show going on at a house in town called the CFP (Centucky Fried Peanut) 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).
