The headline is pretty much it folks! “Mansion Musicfest” taking place at “The Mansion” just outside of Virden, Illinois some 30-40 minutes away from Springfield is happening once again, for a second year for two days coming up on May 30th and 31st. There are no music acts being announced for the festival right now, but we will be sure to let you know when those announcements come. The festival debuted during a rainy weekend last year, but seemed to go over successfully. There have also been a few other events at The Mansion including “Hallowicked” this past October.
Early bird tickets for Mansion Musicfest go on sale coming up soon on March 6th. You can follow the Mansion Musicfest facebook page for more info on that once it is released!
Things are warming up outside and we are starting to get real busy with all of the shows we have going on. Tonight is another one presented by The Radon Lounge and Baristie Boys’ Coffee (or something like that). This show features out of town St. Louis indie-pop act, Golden Curls. You can stream their newest album on the player below. We also have the return of Derrick Streibig – from the band “We Are Warm” based out of the Girard, Illinois area. Up before that we have Imaginary Colours… performing inside of our new space for the first time? Is that true? We might be mistaken on that, but come out to see it either way. Opening things up is a younger singer/songwriter from Petersburg, Emily Perkins performing at our space for the first time.
This show starts at 7:00 pm and admission is $7. Oh! We almost forgot, there is a featured local artist for this show! The works of Jen Santarelli will be on display inside of our show space! Check out a facebook event for all of that right here. Also be sure to check out our shows page for everything else we have coming up this spring.
