It’s Monday, and surprise, there is a show tonight! This one is just a three band show now – what do you know but LIVID, the name that’s big at the top of the flier and the band that is pictured on the flier have dropped. Isn’t that just unfortunate. However, there is still a touring band on this show so it is important that we come out and support! That is Arachnid from Fargo, North Dakota! Stream their music on the player below! It is also the very first ever live show for a brand new Springfield black metal project called Gargantuan! So definitely also important to come out and support that! Right in the middle of that peanut butter sandwich of bands that we have left is Final Order.
That all starts at 7:00 pm and the admission price has been reduced to $5. Alright, we are going to go ahead and say that start time is more likely 7:30 pm since this show is shortened, and will probably go by really quick. Find a facebook event for the show tonight right here. Also be sure to check out our shows page for a good look at what else is coming up.
Did you hear? There is a really big hip hop show going on at our space tonight. The first one we have set up at the new space with a touring hip hop act on it. Let’s make some noise and have a good time. This one is the first hip hop show we have done at the new space featuring a touring act! That is hip hop / jazz artist “Neak” from Chicago! Stream some of Neak’s music on the player below! Other than Neak, this bill features a very stacked lineup of some of the best local artists. This includes the duo Kid Ziggy and Papa Luke, who have been making a splash in the local hip hop scene (featured on the cover of last month’s Activator). Also featured on the cover of last month’s Activator and performing this show… is Otto San! If that’s not enough for you, check out OG Spinner who is also playing this show. Before that it’s time to get dizzy with Dizzy Vibez, from right here in the capitol city. Oh wait! We’ve got one more duo opening things up and that is Zach Moad and Young Frost of Vision Glory Entertainment!
All of that starts with doors at 7:00 pm tonight! Admission is $7. Check out a facebook event for that one right here. Also check out our shows page to see what else is coming up right here.
It is a Sunday, and we have a very good show lined up for you all tonight! Tonight includes Nightcrawler from the Chicago area – playing some real smooth emo music, with a new hit record coming out on Rat King Records very soon. Stream that new hit single on the player below. The other touring act on the bill is a solo act called “Vera Devorah” from Lincoln, Nebraska. As far as locals go, we’ve got local rock group Star Stuff on the bill. We’ve also got Blushe. Opening up this show is actually a 13 year old singer songwriter we are really happy to welcome to perform at our space! That is Ella Gibson!
All of that starts at 7:00 pm tonight and admission is $7. Check out a facebook event for the show right here. Also be sure to check out our shows page for a good look at what else is coming up at our space in the coming months.
It’s been a cold and Christmas-y past couple of days here in the middle of downtown. We are ready to heat things up with a show tonight! 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 tonight 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.
It’s a busy weekend going on right now! We have a big hip hop show featuring a group of artists all of which have never played at our space before, it’s also the official grand opening celebration for Good Heart Tattoos right next door to us kicking off at noon. There is even a pretty great show going on over at The Radon Lounge tonight as well! For us, tonight 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 have been told by the promoters that that is taking place at a different location here in town instead. 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!
We are kicking off the weekend tonight at the Bread! Tonight we’ve got a hardcore show going on at our space. It features the return of Outcast from Kentucky (and no, it’s not the Outkast you are thinking of, ha ha). Outcast played at Black Sheep a year or so back. Check out their music streaming on the player below. Yes, we also have Springfield straight edge youth crew band Prevention on the lineup. Any fans of metal out there or metalcore? Good, because we have the band “Polterguts” from St. Louis as well. Opening things up is the new wild, fast, AND crazy band, Black Box.
This show will start 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 for a good look at what else is coming up in the near future at our space.
Happy Halloween and first day of winter all at once!! Nobody told us that it was supposed to blizzard today! Looks like we will be celebrating Halloween tonight and then going sledding directly after. Tonight we do have a full lineup of bands at our space, despite the weather. At the top of the bill is punky punk act Foam Fangers from right here from our city’s very own dumpsters. Ah yes, and we have Holy Pinto! A band featuring at least one member from the United Kingdom. Stream their music on the player below. Also playing is… Blushe! And before that we’ve got the solo project based out of Decatur, Marble Teeth. Spooky! Opening things up is the absolutely terrifying, the completely ghoulish act from here and Peoria, Sadface Killer!
