We know that after a successful outdoor free outdoor concert, you are all thirsty for more, thirsty to keep on supporting live music in this city so we can maintain our new “Springfield Rock City” worldwide status. Well you are in luck, this Saturday, October 5th, Buzz Bomb Brewing Co. just one street over from us is putting on “Oktoberfest” outside. From our understanding, there will be a big outdoor tent set up just like they did for Buzzfest back in March. This is also supposed to be going on all day from 2:00 pm until 1:00 am way late at night. As far as we can tell there are no age constraints to see the bands play outside, and the event is maybe $16 based on the facebook event. Who’s playing?? Headlining this big one is Twistin’ Tarantulas from Detroit! Pistol Pete who more recently moved to Springfield plays upright bass and sings for the band, check out our radio interview we recently did with Pete. Also of course, big heavy hitting local act NIL8 will be going on before Twistin’ Tarantulas take the stage. According to the facebook event, NIL8 go on at 7:45 and Tarantulas are at 9:30 pm. There is also a Chicago based band called “North By North” playing. You can check out their music streaming on the player below. And earlier on is the Bolzen Beer Band playing some sort of traditional… beer music and there’s a… Hammerschlagen Tournament???

Check out the full facebook event with schedule for this one right here. Buzz Bomb is right over on Adams Street – 406 E Adams right through the alley from us.
