Wow, we are so late on announcing this very exciting news to you all! Okay NOW after this we are done with our show announcements for the year!! This morning we are happy to announce that for the first time ever we are going to be an official venue for a First Night Springfield event. This is the 33rd annual “First Night,” which takes place throughout downtown and is organized by the Springfield Area Arts Council.
We got to pick the bands / artists performing, and we are very happy with this lineup to bring in a new year and new decade with. At the top of the bill is Bottom Bracket, you all know and love. The out-of-towners on this bill are Parachute Day, who are actually cousins of Bottom Bracket because they share a member now. Stream their music on the player below. We also have Emily Hough, the young singer-songwriter from Petersburg who has put out two outstanding EPs this year on the lineup. Before that is the second ever performance at our space for Greenhouse Opera, the new full band featuring Dexter Anodyne. Opening things up we have Andy Krisak – you might remember Andy as being the guy who proposed in our store earlier this fall!
All of this starts on New Year’s Eve (December 31st) in our store at 7:00 pm. There will be fireworks right outside at 8:00 pm, so we will take an intermission after the first or second act. For admission, you can either purchase wristbands for all of First Night through the Arts Council, or if you are attending just our show it is $5 at the door. Find a facebook event for this one right here. Also check out our shows page for a list of shows coming up in the new year that we are slowly building.
