We’re going to be getting out all of these final show announcement for Black Sheep in the space it’s been for the past 13 years here in the next few weeks. This one is happening in less than two weeks on Friday December 7th, and will feature some capital “H” hardcore bands. This show features Milwaukee classic hardcore group Falter, who have performed at our space off and on for some years now. Stream some Falter on the player below. We also have Capitol Offense from Decatur taking our stage one last time. Another Wisconsin band coming through is LIVID – as seen on this year’s Dumb Fest in June. Brute Force from the St. Louis will be joining us as well, and opening things up is Springfield hardcore band Final Order.
All of this starts at 7:00 pm on 12/7. Admission is $7-10, take your pick. Find a facebook event for this one right here. And check out our shows page for a look at what is lined up at Black Sheep while we are still here.
Just one day after our big announcement that we will be moving Dumb Records and Black Sheep downtown at the end of this year / beginning of 2019, local paper The State Journal-Register put us up on the front page yesterday, less than 24 hours after our big announcement. Owner Brian Galecki spoke to the SJ-R about the decision to move. From the article:
“I’ve talked to a lot of people (including former owner Kevin Bradford) and there hasn’t been anyone who didn’t think this was a good idea. We truly view this as a step in the right direction for us. For other show-goers and me, a move downtown feels right.”
Check out the full article online right here. We’re not sure if it’s easy to pick up yesterday’s paper… but you can find the physical article on the front page of yesterday’s paper if you are able to hunt one of those down.
We plan on announcing more details on the move as far as what we need help with, more final shows, and where we are moving to later on.
Happy weekend everybody, and thanks to all who came out to Black Friday at Dumb Records at any point yesterday. We can’t believe that we were left with a mere two records from our order of exclusive releases. Tonight there is a show at Black Sheep – and now that we’ve announced we are moving at the end of the year we can tell you that there are only a handful of shows left in our current space. Tonight we got local emo rockers Bottom Bracket at the top of the bill. Then what’s this? It’s another Vonne reunion show! Oh joy! The out of town act on this show is emo band “Jazz Cabbage” from the Chicago area. You can go ahead and stream their music on the player below. Opening things up is solo acoustic performer Dexter.
This show starts at 7:00 pm and admission is $5. Check out a facebook event for the show right here. Also check out our shows page for a look at what else is coming up at Black Sheep the rest of this year.
