No, we are still not cleared to host events in our new space just yet (and it’s killing us), but however we can still have a store and be involved with a neat and fun group of businesses as part of the “Vintage Love Tour” being set up by Springfield Vintage on Saturday, February 9th! Very lovely! What does the Vintage Love Tour entail? Well, for one this will be a big deal for us because it means we are going to have to have our space and store open from 10am-4pm for the tour. This means we will be open from 10am-8pm that whole day (we really hope the weather is warmer by then). For the Vintage Love Tour we will have a few vendors set up inside our space (the 416 space) selling vintage clothing and other items. We will still have our regular record store up and running too of course.
To go check out the full list of businesses participating and map of the event, go to the Vintage Love Tour facebook page right here. We are excited to now be downtown so we can participate in things like this with other businesses! We are also ready for the weather to get warmer!
Back to the new Springfield music that has been coming out! In the category of local hip hop – here’s a five-track release that dropped right at the end of last month (so the end of 2018). It’s Deezy Da Paperboy with The Midwest Miracle, which you can find streaming on the player embedded below. The last track “Light The Sky” features vocalist from Lincoln, IL, Alexa Redd.
For a long list of what music has recently come out in Springfield, check out our album archive page.
It’s cold outside today. We figure while we are still waiting for our space to get approved for events we might as well be doing show announcement posts for other DIY all ages show that are going on and coming up in town, right? There is one coming up this Sunday, February 3rd at the CFP house. Hopefully it will be a little bit warmer out by then. This show features a few touring acts – on the top of the bill is Chicago “straight edge hardcore” group Decline – whose music you can find streaming on the player below. Another hardcore group from St. Louis – Time & Pressure is coming, a band that has played at Black Sheep before. Another St. Louis band coming up for the show is Redbait. Sounds like we’ve got a packed house! Local groups include No Cash Value – who just played a short set at CFP last week. Last but not least is Final Order from right here in the Capital City.
This show starts at the CFP at 7:00 pm. Admission is five dollars to go to the out of town bands and it’s an all ages shows. If you do not know where the CFP is located, maybe you can inquire on the facebook event. Be sure to also check out our Springfield shows page where we try to keep a list of shows coming up in town that are outside of our own space.
