Hey it’s the first of May and we hear we are also in the middle of Public Radio Week going on here in town! There’s been some buzz surrounding a show happening on the last day of this “Public Radio Week” being put together by NPR Illinois 91.9 UIS… looks like we have ourselves a few performances lined up on the Old State Capitol Lawn this upcoming Friday, May 3rd at 7:00 pm. (The flier above says 5th and Washington, and their facebook event says 6th and Washington… we are going to assume this is taking place somewhere out on the lawn in between those two streets). *UPDATE: This is actually now happening at Anvil & Forge at 619 E Washington Street. Wow! For this event they have a performance by Jeff Williams of NIL8 lined up, also Springfield folk/Americana act The Deep Hollow will be performing. Also Kate Laine (Kate the Band(?)), and Looming (as a two piece?), Dexter Anodyne, and more? Wow!
From what we gather there are actually pre-sale tickets for this one, which are $10 and can be found on the NPR site right here. Check out a facebook event for all of that right here. We are going to go ahead and list this one on our Springfield shows page and try to keep more up to date on shows going on in town outside of our own space!
