We are doing this thing again. For those of you who can remember as far back as December of the year 2017, we held a game show / trivia night of sorts at Black Sheep, put on by “Country Breakfast Jack” aka BJ. This included triva, relay races, and a live jazz band performing the jeopardy theme song throughout most of the night. Now, on Friday, February 21st it is happening all over again at our new space featuring our new gold curtains. From the event description:
Game Show Night is going to include games, challenges, music, and tons of other surprises that will make us all feel like winners in the end.
The Show will be hosted by our own Country Jack and his mom Jill.
Music will be provided by Animals with Human names and maybe some comedy TBA.
Surely this is going to be a good time. The fun will begin at 7:00 pm on this day and entry is $5. Check out a facebook event for the show right here. Also check out our shows page for a look at what else is coming up this month and beyond at Dumb Records.
We do have something weird going on at Black Sheep tonight that we haven’t really even told you about. It’s the first ever Black Sheep game show??? Put on by B.J. Pearce (Black Sheep, Southtown Sound, etc) aka “Bingo Jack” it seems like BJ has some tricks up his sleeves for this and we aren’t really sure how to explain what’s going to happen. We DO know there is some sort of $50 grand price for one lucky winner. BJ will be hosting the game show with his mom as his assistant. There will also be live music at some point in there by a local jazz group called “Jack’d”? We probably sure are in for a treat tonight.
Everyone participating tonight needs to show up RIGHT at 7:00 pm if not early to qualify. Looks like admission is $5, normal show price? Find a facebook event for this wacky spectacle right here. Also check out our shows page for a list of what else is coming up at Black Sheep in the near future.
At the past Black Sheep Roundtable Meeting earlier this month, one of the topics discussed was the idea of having more non-musical events held at Black Sheep. Yesterday we told you about our clean-up day happening on March 2nd. Today we are telling you that Black Sheep Game Night will be happening on Wednesday, March 16th! How fun!
The big game night is going to kick off at 8:00 pm that night, of course it is open to anyone who wants to join and is free. Bring a board game if you want! No rules! Let’s play hide and go seek inside Black Sheep! You can find a facebook event for game night right here. There might be some sort of musical type event happening at Dumb Records earlier in the afternoon/evening. Also be sure to check out our shows page for a long list of all of our events coming up in Southtown.
Game nights at Black Sheep has evolved into other fun events and today we are hosting a “Magic: The Gathering” tournament. Those of us running the site do not know much about how Magic cards work, so I am just going to insert the description from the facebook event:
$5 entry fee, all participants will receive one Return to Ravnica booster and the top 4 finishers will win additional boosters. The format we will be using will be Pauper Legacy, meaning your deck may contain cards from any set except Unhinged or Unglued, but your deck must be constructed with only COMMON cards (minimum of 60 cards in a deck). Limiting everyone to common cards should allow everyone, whether a new player or veteran, to be able to put together a decent deck. If you aren’t sure if a card is common or not you can look it up on deckbox.org or gatherer.wizards.com
If that sounds like it might be something you are interested in then come out today! The Magic begins at 1:30 pm. Come join the Magic happening at Black Sheep this fall. Check out what other events we have coming up here.
At the Black Sheep roundtable meetings a number of us discussed the need for more game nights and hang outs at Black Sheep. Expanding off of our “game nights,” we will now be hosting a Magic: The Gathering tournament on October 7th at 2:00 pm. Admission to participate in the tournament is $5. Those not wanting to play can probably come hang out and cheer on their favorite Magic players. A facebook event for the tournament with a better explanation of what is happening can be found here.
For those unfamiliar with what Magic is, it was the card game being played in the middle of the circle pit during Emperor Norton‘s set at Black Sheep Fest. If you weren’t at Black Sheep Fest, try heading here to get a better understanding.
