All of these amazing photos were taken by Ryan Capranica. Bands include Soap Scum, Looming, Rockford, and Hannah Songer. There are 180 photos total! You can see them all on our newly created flickr album right here. Also a few above and below. Our beloved friend Gordon Chang also caught the full video of all four sets from the night, which you can find all of streaming on his youtube channel right here.

Photos: Black Sheep Band Lotto 2018

Today we are bringing you some photos taken from Black Sheep Band Lotto 2018, which was just last night (wow that was quick, wasn’t it)!? There are 27 photos total, check a few out above and below. Last night all seven bands that were drawn took the stage in some form or another (which might be the first time in Band Lotto history that that was the case). Band Lotto Band #3 “EGGMAN” also made Band Lotto history by being the first band to show up to the show with a physical release of recorded material which was a limited run of 25 lathe cut records. The record was “Record of the Night” pictured below.

Go check out all of the photos from last night right here. Check out our shows/vids page for more photos taken over the years at Black Sheep. Gordon Chang was also taking video last night and you can probably expect those videos to turn out soon. Activator Magazine was also there taking more photos, so there are more on the way!

Today we are bringing you all of those sweet sweet photos from Dumb Fest #6 this past weekend. All of the photos in this batch were taken by Veronica Mullen (who also performed in two bands this past weekend – Ghoul Jr. and Power of Dusk). Veronica shot photos of most of day 2 of the fest (Saturday) at Black Sheep and Skank Skates, also the aftershow at Ms. D’s Kitchen, and at The Old State Capitol the next day.

Find all of Veronica’s photos from Dumb Fest 6 right here on facebook or right here on flickr.

Prowess performed with an exercise machine from the future on the stage. Check out a few of those photos below, and head over to our “12 Year Anniversary Show” album on flickr to view them all.

It might not be an easy task, but we have been trying our best to gather photos of the incredible Dumb Fest 4-Ever which happened here in Springfield now two weeks ago. The festival happened over the course of three different days on June 10th, 11th, and 12th and 50 bands played at 5? 6? different locations. We have just been grabbing photos as we see them appear, and giving as much photo credit as we can here!! Special thanks to photographers Stephen Houldsworth, Miles Fowler, Austin Roberts, Will Mecca, and B.J. Pearce, and plenty of others. If you took pictures of Dumb Fest that we don’t have, we want to include them in our album! Email us at blacksheepspringfield@gmail.com with your photos. We have started compiling our big album of Dumb Fest 4 photos right here on our Dumb Fest 4-Ever flickr album. You can also find them on the Dumb Fest facebook page soon. Also check out a few below.

Check out more videos from the festival and also other videos/pictures taken at Black Sheep over the years on our vids/pics page.
