Good afternoon! We’ve never made a post on our website like this one before. This is a post to let you know a really really big (free) show might potentially be happening at Rock N’ Roll Hardee’s on Monday, September 30th – however we need to put a feeler out to make sure we can pull it off.
We do not have things locked in and confirmed with a potential band from overseas that would be playing at Rock N’ Roll Hardee’s on September 30th, so unfortunately we can not tell you what it is, other than that it will be the biggest thing we will have pulled off setting up there. The band does have a guarantee that we are trying to get met – and having the show at Hardee’s would mean we would not be able to charge admission, which would mean we would need to meet the guarantee for the band’s costs, and also additional costs such as sound setup through sponsors for the event.
SO, with this post we are reaching out to any potential sponsors – which could mean local businesses, or individual people that can help us make this happen. We know that it might be odd asking for this without being able to say who the band is, but trust us, if it happens it’s going to be good. You can reach out to us by coming in our store, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 217-691-8991. We would be up for working with different sponsorship levels to make sure the event happens. Also sponsors would potentially get their name or logo listed on a poster that gets distributed all over town, potential radio mentions, and table or booth space at the actual event. We are flexible on what can happen here!
Oops, we have another Thursday night show in the works! This one is happening at 8:00 pm on Thursday, August 1st. It’s actually the same night as the last Levitt AMP Springfield Music Series event featuring John Moreland, which is why we are starting things later here at 8:00 pm. It’s just a three band show, highly recommended. We have two touring acts from Minnesota. The first of which is “Greentop” playing some indie/alternative music that you can find streaming on the player below. Greentop will be touring with solo act Wyatt Moran who is also from Rochester, Minnesota. Then of course there’s Bottom Bracket, who will be going either first or last on the lineup, we are not sure.
Again, this show starts at 8:00 pm that night and admission is $6. Check out 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 coming up at Bread Sheep in the near future!!
If you haven’t noticed, the “CFP” house venue has been pretty quiet these past few months as things have been more up and rolling on the “Bread Stretchers” end of things. However, tonight the Springfield basement is hosting what looks like their one and only show this summer and the first one since shows have been happening at Bread Stretchers. Tonight the show at the CFP features the full band lineup of Kate The Band, who just released two hot new tracks on our site this past week. There are two touring bands on this show. The first is “Dead Selves” from Atlanta, Georgia. You can stream their music on the player below. The other band is “Dana Skully & The Tiger Sharks”. Wait, that band played at Black Sheep before, didn’t they? Opening things up is an act we haven’t seen in a minute – Marble Teeth from Decatur, Illinois.
All of this starts at the CFP house at 7:00 on July 3rd – yes, they will be serving Crusty Fish Pies as part of their vegan bake sale. It’s $5. Check out a facebook event for the show right here. Also check out our Springfield shows page where we try to keep a list of shows going on outside of our space in town.
