Hey all it’s Friday, it’s the weekend and there is plenty going on. We don’t have any shows lined up at Bread Stretchers this weekend, but there are still things to do in this city! Here’s a quick post that’s a rundown on some things going on.

Remember the Tiny Desk mini-concert that we told you about a couple of days ago? Well guess what, that is happening tonight at Anvil & Forge Brewery downtown at 7:00 pm. We have been told this is still all ages however sounds like if you are under 21 you require some sort of parent or guardian. :-/. 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!

By the way, we have not at all mentioned this but we are going to be apart of some panel discussion today at the Midwest Music Expo in Decatur at Millikin University. That’s kicking off in just an hour or two so it’s a little late notice for us to be telling you about it for any of you readers out there in Springfield. We’ll be on a panel of discussion topics with other representatives from different areas of the music industry to talk about things ranging from show and concert booking to social media and guerrilla marketing. We aren’t entirely sure what to expect but are up for whatever today brings!

Because of being gone in Decatur, our radio show on 88.3 WQNA will not be airing today on its usual 4:00 to 6:00 pm Friday time. Our store however will still be open its normal time today until 8:00 pm.
