Here is yet another show coming up at Bread Stretchers for us to tell you about. This one is happening on Sunday, May 12th over at the good ol’ Bread Stretch. We have the band “Big Loser” coming from Texas. Who is that? Well, actually they were a band called “Free Kittens And Bread” who had actually played Black Sheep a few times in recent years. They just recently decided that that name was dumb so they are “Big Loser” now. Sound good? Okay, listen to their music on the player below and hear how they sound! Also on this show is THE Telephone Junkies. The one and only. Speaking of great bands, Loverboard from over in Eastern Illinois are making a return to Springfield for this show! Opening things up is Dexter Anodyne local musician.

This show will start at 7:00 pm and cost $5. Check out a facebook event right here. Also be sure to check out our Bread Stretchers shows page for a good look at everything coming up at Bread Stretchers in the near future.
