We are trying to keep it going on updating our currently pretty out of date list of local active bands on our website! There have been a lot of new bands forming within the past few months, and Blushe is without a doubt one to be paying attention to! So, today we bring you a new page on our site for Blushe – although it might not be much. Check that out right here. Hopefully we can be on the lookout for new recordings and shows from Blushe in the near future.
Check out our current bands page on our site right here. Do you play in a local band or are a local musician who has not gotten a page together with us? Reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will work with you to get something set up!
If you are looking for your daily dose of new local music you have come to the right place today. Somehow we have completely missed until just recently how much new music Jacksonville based indie/psychedelic band The Dixie Narcos have been putting out. Apparently they have released something like FIVE albums… and like three of them have been within the past six months… WOW. The three latest albums were just recently added to bandcamp, the newest being Soda Pop! released January of this year. You can check out all three of those streaming on separate players below. Head over to The Dixie Narcos bandcamp page to stream the albums as well or download them at your own price.
We are working on adding all of these to our Springfield ultimate album archive page. No, The Dixie Narcos do not have any live shows lined up from what we can tell!
Once again, we are gearing up for another big weekend here in downtown Springfield. As you all should know, The Skatalites from Jamaica play here for free in three days out on the Y-Block downtown as part of the Levitt AMP Concert Series. That is this Thursday night. Then Friday and Saturday night is the Legacy of Giving Music Festival going on downtown for the fifteenth consecutive year if you count its predecessor music festival, SOHO which started in 2004. Legacy of Giving, or LOG Fest has their own website where you can check out a list of bands right here. We’ve found their schedules for Friday and Saturday posted above might be the best way to figure out what bands are playing where on each of the five stages at what times on Friday and Saturday. We got that from the festival’s facebook page. We hear there is a total of 67 bands (we’ll believe that number without trying to count all of those).
This year Dumb Records and Bread Blasters is involved with one of the official aftershows Saturday night, which is also in conjunction with the Creative Earth Art Show happening at our space this Saturday, June 8th from 5:00 to 9:00 pm. Find more info as far as artists involved right here. We do have poetry and musical acts from Fuzzlove, Cody Jones, Hope Fiend, and Shatriya Smith. The event is also free!
Find a facebook event for all of Legacy of Giving right here. By the way, admission for the festival is only $5 and goes to a bunch of different local charities! All ages of course!
