Our friends over at Activator Magazine are still keeping the great local music content coming in the form of their monthly magazine – we never put up a post but we’ve had the February issue available at Dumb Records for some time now! The issue features local singer/songwriter Alexa Redd on the cover. There’s plenty of great stuff, so come in and pick one up for free – before you know it it’s going to be March and there will be another issue out!
Activator Magazine also just launched an online Patreon campaign online! What’s that about? Well, if you sign up for just three bucks a month you get to be a contributor to the magazine’s mission, as well as peep some exclusive content in advance (like get a glimpse at who’s going to be on the cover of the March issue). We are lucky to have a free monthly print magazine focusing on local music and art in town, so support what they are doing if you can! Go check out their Patreon account online right here.
There were rumors floating around that a secret show at The Lincoln Library was happening… and it looks like these rumors turned out to be true! This upcoming Saturday, March 2nd at 6:00 pm there is a free show happening in the public library featuring three acts. Amazing! Bands playing include Springfield’s very own pop / punk group Attic Salt at the top of the bill. Check out their music streaming on the player below. Also is everyone’s favorite Champaign rock group “Nectar” which has played in Springfield many times. Opening things up is Mary Jo Curry according to the flier above, who we do not know much about.
That starts at 6:00 pm inside the Lincoln Library downtown on Capitol and 7th streets… we are guessing somewhere on the ground floor of the library. The event is free and all ages. Find a facebook event for this one right here. Also be sure to check out our shows page for a good look at what else is coming up in Springfield while we are waiting on our venue space to get approved.
