Today we are bringing you brand new Springfield music with some more local hip hop here. This one is a song featuring long time local rappers Deezy Da Paperboy and Cornbread. The song is called “Check A Bag” and comes from an upcoming mixtape being put together by the artists called Kush & Kollabs. Check out the song streaming on the player below.
Both Cornbread and Deezy Da Paperboy will be performing their own separate sets at the first hip hop show at the new Bread Stretchers which we haven’t officially announced yet on Friday, May 31st. Be on the lookout for the announcement for that soon.
There is an article in today’s local paper The State Journal-Register about the big Levitt AMP Springfield Music Series announcement. The article is titled “Weekly Y-Block Concert Series To Begin May 30th” found in the Local section of this Wednesday’s paper, also online right here. From the article:
The Skatalites, one of Jamaica’s original heavy-hitting ska and reggae bands, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band and Fareed Haque headline the Levitt AMP Springfield Music Series on the Y-block in downtown Springfield on Thursday evenings from May 30th to Aug. 1. The series’ musical styles run the gamut, with artists offering up beebop jazz, soul, traditional Celtic, classical and roots-rock.
The full list of ten concerts has been announced, which you can find a list of on our site right here. Dumb Records is on as a main sponsor for the Thursday, June 6th featuring the one and only Skatalites from Jamaica, which is already less than one month away.
Be sure to “like” and follow the Levitt AMP Springfield facebook page for more updates on the concert series.
Trying to stay in the loop with all of the music festivals happening here in town and Central Illinois this summer! A festival whose lineup was recently announced and started in Central Illinois the same time that Dumb Fest did (which would have also been on its seventh year), is Audiofeed Music Festival which takes place at the fairgrounds in Urbana, Illinois each year. This year “Volume 07” of the festival is taking place from Thursday July 4th through Saturday July 6th. The poster is above, although there are so many bands listed there that you might have trouble reading them. You can find a close-up and probably more readable version of the poster on the Audiofeed website right here. You can also find ticket info and more FAQ’s on the Audiofeed website. We find it worth mentioning that our friends over at The Radon Lounge are some of the many people involved in setting up this festival every year.
