Resistant To Reason: “First Year”


Taylorville-based punk rock band Resistant To Reason have recently released a collection of songs under the title First Year. This includes seven tracks, all of which you can stream on the player below. Also head over to the band’s bandcamp page to download the entire release for free! Resistance To Reason don’t have any shows lined up at the moment as far as we can tell.

We are counting this one as well as many other in our Best of Springfield Music 2018 list which we are still working on compiling! The poll for that is set to launch this Monday!

December 8th at Black Sheep: Summoning The Lich, Dr. Dick Ramirez, Eyes From Above, Primitive Deception, Nethersphere


It’s December! That means it’s our final month in operation in the current locations of Black Sheep and Dumb Records before we pack up at the end of this month and move downtown. It surely is sad, but also very exciting times. We have just a handful of shows left to announce – there will probably be right around ten shows this month total, and some surely wild ones. This one one week from today on Saturday, December 8th is going to be the last metal show at Black Sheep! It features touring act Summoning The Lich from St. Louis, which you can find streaming on the player below. It also features local act Eyes From Above who just released a new EP! Very cool. We’ll also have a visit from “Dr. Dick Ramirez” which happens to be another metal band from Quincy, Illinois.  If that’s not enough metal for ya, we have Primitive Deception up before them from Decatur, Illinois. And opening things up is Nethersphere from Jacksonville!

This show will start promptly at 7:00 pm and admission is $7. Check out a facebook event for this show right here. Also check out our shows page for a look at everything left happening at Black Sheep in our current location.
