Our friends over at HISO Music, which recently opened up their facility near the corner of 5th and South Grand are hard at work doing cool things. Earlier this year they launched a new Springfield based web series called “The Meeting.” Maybe somewhat similar to things you might have seen on “The Studio Show” (put on by a different group in a building on South Grand), “The Meeting” is a fictional series about a music and entertainment company called “SOHI” starting off and overcoming obstacles together (maybe similar to what HISO music is).
So far there have been four episodes released, and the plan has been for new episodes to continue coming out every Monday. Check out those episodes on the HISO Music site right here.
There are no shows lined up at our space right now (and not even a whole lot in Springfield at all as far as we can tell), so we want to tell you about cool shows still going on at cool places like The Radon Lounge. This one is happening later this month on Saturday, March 23rd at The Radon. It’s their first ever all hip hop show over there! Wow! We are not even familiar with most of these artists. At the top of the lineup is Otto San – is that someone from Springfield? Jeff? Up before that there’s “Kid Ziggy.” We’ve got Kid Ziggy’s soundcloud player embedded below right down there, you can go ahead and have a listen. Looks like Kid Ziggy is in fact from right here in Springfield. Before that is “Papa Luke”, yes from right here in town. Jazz Robots… are playing as well…. from Chicago! Wow! Last but not least is Animals With Human Names who of course we all know. And as usual The Radon Lounge is getting all fancy pantsy with having guest artists and this time it’s art of “Talismen” on display.
This Radon Lounge show starts at 7:00 pm on 3/23 and admission is just five bucks. 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 going on around town (not a whole lot from what we can tell).
