For those of you who have not seen, tonight we bring you a collection of photos taken at the final final Black Sheep show which took place on Friday, December 28th of last year (one month ago now)! All of these amazing photos were taken by Ryan Capranica. Bands include Soap Scum, Looming, Rockford, and Hannah Songer. There are 180 photos total! You can see them all on our newly created flickr album right here. Also a few above and below. Our beloved friend Gordon Chang also caught the full video of all four sets from the night, which you can find all of streaming on his youtube channel right here.
Check out our vids/pics page for more photo albums taken over the years at Black Sheep.
Here’s another new release from Springfield local sound / electronic ambient artist Timothy Donavan Russell, and his first of 2019. It’s a five song release called Public Domain 2019 which apparently includes tracks performed recently at a house concert here in Springfield. Check that out streaming on the player below.
Timothy also recently released Pin Drop late last year and another one we didn’t manage to make a website post for was Best of Electronic 2008-2018, which included some unreleased material as well. We have trouble keeping up with all of Timothy’s releases sometime. Check out our Springfield album archive, where we have this one listed now for 2019.
Timothy Donavan Russell is also a member of The Pharmacy Gallery, which is also in the middle of making a big move to a new location downtown.
Here’s another show happening not at our space but that’s coming up in town for us to tell you about. It’s Saturday, February 16th at The Radon Lounge and should be a good one. They have this indie / psych rock band coming from St. Louis called “We Are Warm” (we hope that we are going to be a lot warmer than what it’s been like outside these last few days, that’s for sure). You can stream their music on that soundcloud player below. The other full band on the bill is “The Randys” from Lawrenceville, Illinois wherever that is! Where’s Lawrenceville? And who is Randy? Come to the show to find out. Actually there’s another full band, and that is Star Stuff who played their first show late last year at Black Sheep we are pretty sure. Opening things up is the very talented solo act, “Dexter.” In addition to all of this music there will be works on display by local artist Devin Larson as well.
All of this happening at 7:00 pm that night and you can count on there being La Crouix, pinball, probably coffee, probably other stuff. Admission is $5. Check out a facebook event for the show right here. Check out our Springfield Shows page. Check out The Radon Lounge’s website, especially if you don’t know where it is.
