If you haven’t noticed, the “CFP” house venue has been pretty quiet these past few months as things have been more up and rolling on the “Bread Stretchers” end of things. But it looks like The CFP is coming back this summer for one special show to show Bread Stretchers that they mean business. They are holding a “Vegan Bake Sale” to compete with all of the bread coming out of Bread Stretchers on Wednesday, July 3rd. This makes for four shows in a row since we have nows now lined up at our space on July 4th, July 5th, and July 6th. Yes, this is a terrible idea. This show at the CFP features the full band lineup of Kate The Band, who just released two hot new tracks on our site this past week. There are two touring bands on this show. The first is “Dead Selves” from Atlanta, Georgia. You can stream their music on the player below. The other band is “Dana Skully & The Tiger Sharks”. Wait, that band played at Black Sheep before, didn’t they? Opening things up is an act we haven’t seen in a minute – Marble Teeth from Decatur, Illinois.

All of this starts at the CFP house at 7:00 on July 3rd – yes, they will be serving Crusty Fish Pies as part of their vegan bake sale. It’s $5. Check out a facebook event for the show right here. Also check out our Springfield shows page where we try to keep a list of shows going on outside of our space in town.

Whoops, we almost forgot to tell you – there is a five act show happening tonight at The CFP House here in town! It’s surely a matter of time before we are up and running with shows at our new space, but for now we are still in a house show era of Springfield underground music. This one looks like a pretty solid lineup – the Looming three-piece band is making a rare basement appearance tonight. Also Bottom Bracket who are hard at work on a new album and recently did a four day tour or something. Tonight there are two touring acts – one including “Farseek” from Ohio that played at Black Sheep at some point, right? If anyone remembers that old legendary Springfield DIY space. Also on tour from Michigan is Complainer. We have their music streaming on the player below. Opening things up is Springfield solo acoustic act Flunkie!

This show starts at 7:00 pm and admission is $5. Check out a facebook event for the show right here. Also be sure to check out our Springfield shows page, which we need to update. Thanks!

Do you feel lost without any shows happening at The Black Sheep now? Are you confused, frightened by this new in-between time with no shows going on at the new Dumb Records quite yet?? We might be. But don’t worry, there are still some shows happening around town in these in between times! There is one happening tonight in fact, at the “CFP” house! It’s a three-band hardcore show. This one features the band Decisions from New York! Stream some of their music on the player below. We also get a RARE performance and the first ever since band lotto of the mythical Springfield punk group – EGGMAN. Have you found the last three Eggman flex’s hidden around the city yet?

Also homegrown hardcore and raised is Graveswitcher who just played here last night. Other than that, there’s Capitol Offense (hardcore heavy band) from Decatur. And opening things up it looks like… Crowning (no, actually they probably wouldn’t be opening up), from Chicago.

That is your show. Things start at 7:00 pm over there at The CFP, sorry we can’t tell you where the house is on there. $5 for the touring bands. Find a facebook event for that one right here.
