January 19th at Dumb Records: Slow Mass, Turtledoves, Mother Leopard, Kirk Donely


Oh well big whoops, we have not officially announced this show on our site yet. This is going to be a big one because it’s the first show at our space that Jeff Black of The Radon Lounge is involved in setting up since he’s joined our team. This one is happening on Sunday, January 19th at Dumb Records. This one features two touring acts, and some surprises. The touring act at the top of the bill is Slow Mass from Chicago. This band features members of bands that have performed at Black Sheep over the years, and you can listen to some of their music on the player below. The other act is a duo called Turtledoves from Cincinnati Ohio, featuring two members that were a part of the band Soil & The Sun, which Jeff had booked at Radon Lounge before. For locals… wow, what is this we have the band Mother Leopard back from the dead from the year 2009. Also from 2009 and even earlier than that is Kirk Donely of the bands The Transatlantic and Sealife?!? (Okay, he currently plays in The Dandelion Pickers).

This whole show starts at 7:00 pm on that day and it’s $7 admission. Mark your calendars. Here is a facebook event for the show right here. Also be sure to check out our shows page for a good look at what else is coming up at our space in the near future.

Springfield / Taylorville American Surf Rock band “Sonic Maximizer” (recently changed from “Snuff Rider” after an ongoing lawsuit with a German 80’s pop project of the same name), have released a brand new song and video out online. The song is called “Murphy Brown” and you can check it out on the band’s facebook page right here. Sorry, but we aren’t going to even try to embed the facebook player below, we hadn’t had any luck the last time we tried doing such a thing.

Sonic Maximizer don’t have any live shows lined up with as far as we know, however this song does come from an upcoming album of theirs to be released later this year.
