Pay attention, because we are here now to tell you about a pretty sick gig happening on Thursday, November 14th at our space. You’re all invited. This show features Jupiter Styles, which has been making a big splash in the Chicago area and features Sean Neumann (formerly of Single Player, Nectar, Easter, and maybe some other bands that have played at Black Sheep). Stream some of their up and coming big hit album on the player below. Also on this show is the return of Bottom Bracket, back with a brand new lineup or something? We heard a rumor that every single former member of the band has now been replaced with a brand new members from all over the world, we are going to have to see if that is true. Also this is the return of Kate Laine who we have also not seen in a minute! Opening things up is some new group from Alton, Illinois called “Yeah, I’m Sorry.” What kind of a name for a band is that?

This all starts on November 14th at… 7:00 pm and admission is $7. Check out a facebook event right here. Also be sure to check out our shows page for a look at everything else coming up this fall.

We’ve got another show coming up in November – this one is also one month from now on Saturday, November 9th. It’s a hip hop show featuring a group of artists all of which have never played at our space before. The headlining act here is an artist by the name of Mac Xavier, who was originally based out of Springfield but has since moved to Georgia. You can check out his music streaming on the player below. The poster has three other artists listed from the area. One of those includes “Satisfy.” It also includes…. King Deezy. And… “Unk”?! We can’t find Unk on the internet. Plus it looks like there’s more!

The poster says something about a VIP package but we told the promoters in this case that we are not really sure how that would work or make sense with our record store setup and being open all day before the show. Oh well. General admission for this show is $10, and let’s go ahead and say it starts shortly after 7:00 pm. Check out a facebook event for this one right here. Also check out our show page for a good look at what else is coming up at our space in the near future!

What’s up! We have a show to announce right here. It’s happening on Sunday, October 20th right here at the space. What do we got? Some type of really fast hardcore band from Madison, Wisconsin called “Mended” at the top of the bill. Stream their music on the player below. Also on this show we’ve got Final Order. Good, fast, local hardcore, you know the drill.ย  Then what’s this, we have a new hardcore band from Central Illinois called Bull Cult? Is this the band that we are thinking it is? Featuring members of Ghost Key and Black Teeth from long long ago? Or we might be crazy. Another power electronics / noise act called “Col2apse” on the bill. Is that just pronounced “Collapse”? Opening things up is a brand new new Springfield band playing their first show we know nothing about called “Oh Gosh.”

That show starts at 7:00 pm and admission is $7. Check out a facebook event for the show right here. Also be sure to check out our shows page where we keep and active list for everything we’ve got coming up.
