Good morning! We have another July show to announce over here for The Bread Sheep Café (no sandwiches, just coffee). Last night was a pretty good show, wasn’t it? This one we have to tell you about is on Friday, July 12th. It’s a nice show. This show features full band “Kate The Band” – you know it’s good based on these two songs we streamed on our site this past week. The touring act on this bill is “Best Sleep” from Fort Wayne, Indiana. You can stream their music on the player embedded below. Then we have the first “Bread Sheep” performance of Peoria and Springfield based emo band Sadface Killer. They are a good band and released their debut full length album Domino Line earlier this year. Opening things up is the local solo project – Flunkie.

Does this thing work? Does it hurt your eyes or is it cool? Good. Whoops, we are way late in the game of letting you know that we are planning a show in the space next to us for the Fourth of July this year. (We are downtown right where the fireworks are happening, why not)! For this show we have the band Skeleton from somewhere Texas making a return to Springfield for the first time since a New Years Eve House Show in the year… 2014/2015 or something. Stream their music on the player below to hear how much they’ve grown. Also on this show is that new heavy surf band “Snuff Rider” that will be playing their first show here on the 22nd of this month. Opening things up is a special patriotic fourth of July performance from the band Uncle Sam’s Mutagenic Children.

All of that starts later… we are saying after the fireworks, which we think are at 9:00 pm. Everyone’s going to be downton as it is, right? Admission is $5 for the touring act. Find a facebook event for this one soon. Check out our Bread Sheep upcoming shows page for a look at what else is coming up soon.

It’s time to move on with some July show announcements for shows happening at the new Bread Sheep Café located right next to us. This one is happening Thursday, July 18th. It’s the same night as a Levitt show, so the start time is pushed back a little later to 8:00 pm. For this show we have the return of heavy heavy band Transgression from Kentucky to Springfield. They performed here last about one year ago exactly for the last Dumb Fest. Stream their brand new album on the player below. This show is actually going to be the tape release show for new local band Prevention – we brought you those recordings on our site a few days ago. Also on tour and continuing with the heavy music is “156/Silence” from Pittsburg, Pennsylvania. Then we have a band called “Gumm” described as “melodic punk” from Tennessee. Are all three of those bands touring together or what? Opening things up is a fifth act and that is the return of popular local goof-off fart bomb band Prowess.

This show starts at 8:00 pm and admission is $7. Check out a facebook event for this one right here. Also be sure to check out our shows page for a look at what else is coming up at The Bread Sheep in coming months.

We have another slammer of a show to tell you about happening at Bread Sheep Records on Saturday, July 6th. It’s a slammer, but it’s a pretty nice and diverse bill as well. We have the mighty return of the mighty might band Jocko from Ohmaha, Nebraska. Jocko played here last at Black Sheep the first night of Dumb Fest 6 for those of you who were around for that… exactly one year ago! Stream some of Jocko’s music on the player below if you are unfamiliar. Also on this show is today’s featured band: Final Order. Right in the middle we have a curveball and that is local hip hop act Animals With Human Names, playing his first show at Bread Stretchers 2.0. Then we’ve got St. Louis area hardcore group Brute Force coming back to play the Bread Stretch for yet another time.

Here’s another great show for us to tell you about coming up at Bread Stretchers! This one happening on Friday, July 5th right after the fourth of July. This one is going to feature the one and only… full band performance of Looming (the first full band performance we have seen in Springfield in a minute). Wow! There are two touring acts from Michigan on this show. One of them is Great Expectations from Detroit, playing some emo type music that you can find on the player below. They will be on tour with another band called Seaholm from Ann Arbor. Opening this show up is a slow performance by Blue Parks, who may be going by the performance name of Body Forth.

Look at this whopper of a show we have to tell you about today. It’s going to be a good one, happening later this month on Friday, June 28th. This is going to be the LP release (yes, a vinyl record) of local group Local Drags who have not performed in Springfield very often if even at all. It’s good though – someone is pressing their album on to wax so it’s gotta be good. Stream it again on that player below. This show is also going to be good because it’s got heavy hitters Bottom Bracket on board. And we’ve also got a rare Attic Salt performance – another band who has yet to play in the new space. Opening things up is the first show of a new Taylorville duo going by the name “Farm Shack”! We’re going to find out what that is all about.

This show starts at 7:00 pm and admission is $5. Check out a facebook event for this one right here. Also be sure to check out our Bread Stretch Record Sheep’s shows page for a look at what is coming up in this space next door to us that we don’t have anything to do with.
