TONIGHT – tonight is the night of one of the biggest final Black Sheep shows we have lined up, and the seventh last show at Black Sheep ever. We have a mega-stacked lineup tonight featuring some different genres. Have you listened to PARK? Popular emo band primarily active in Springfield from 1996-2007, then reunited in 2013 and have released a 10″ record and performed a handful of big shows since then. Park will be performing on the Black Sheep stage once again for this show, and we are happy to have them. We are also excited to welcome the return of Earth Witch – a band not as active in our area due to Nathan Landolt of Error Records / Hand of Death Records moving away to North Carolina a few years back. Stream Earth Witch’s newest album on the player below. Right in the middle of the lineup is Springfield emo band Bottom Bracket. More friends from Champaign are coming with the band Nectar. Before that is a performance by indie artist Kate Laine. And opening things up is Sadface Killer, emo from the Peoria area. Wow.
Those are a lot of bands. Because of all of those bands, this show will start at 6:30 pm on the dot. Tickets are $15 at the door if you didn’t get tickets in advance. Yes, you can still pay for entry at the door. Find a facebook event for this mega-gig right here. Also be sure to check out our shows page for a list of shows coming up at Black Sheep the rest of this year.
Woooo!!! We are down to EIGHT final shows happening at Black Sheep starting with this one tonight, and those eight shows are going to be spread out over the next two weeks. Tonight is going to be a wild and wacky punk show! We have Graveswitcher – the loud and crushing new hardcore band featuring members of many other local groups. We also have Prowess – this will be their last set inside Black Sheep so surely something goofy will happen, right? Also MAC – the punk rock group that released an EP earlier this fall. Last but not least is No Cash Value – back and better than ever with a brand new lineup.
This show will start at 7:00 pm and admission is just $5. No reason not to come out and have a good time! Check out a facebook event for this one right here.

Wow, thanks to all who came out last night! Now that things are ending at our home of 13+ years this is surely an emotional but also exciting time. Tonight is the LAST metal show to ever take place inside Black Sheep, and our eighth last show ever. It features touring act Summoning The Lich from St. Louis, which you can find streaming on the player below. It also features local act Eyes From Above who just released a new EP! Very cool. We’ll also have a visit from “Dr. Dick Ramirez” which happens to be another metal band from Quincy, Illinois. If that’s not enough metal for ya, we have Primitive Deception up before them from Decatur, Illinois. And opening things up is Nethersphere from Jacksonville!
This show will start promptly at 7:00 pm and admission is $7. Check out a facebook event for this show right here. Also check out our shows page for a look at everything left happening at Black Sheep in our current location.
Happy weekend everybody, and thanks to all who came out to Black Friday at Dumb Records at any point yesterday. We can’t believe that we were left with a mere two records from our order of exclusive releases. Tonight there is a show at Black Sheep – and now that we’ve announced we are moving at the end of the year we can tell you that there are only a handful of shows left in our current space. Tonight we got local emo rockers Bottom Bracket at the top of the bill. Then what’s this? It’s another Vonne reunion show! Oh joy! The out of town act on this show is emo band “Jazz Cabbage” from the Chicago area. You can go ahead and stream their music on the player below. Opening things up is solo acoustic performer Dexter.

It’s the weekend! And it’s cold outside! Well guess what, our heat is working great inside Black Sheep and we’ve got a different show going on tonight than we usually host. It’s a night of electronic and dubstep music. This show features long running Springfield electronic project KaBass. We also have “Mario” aka “Funky House”? Who is also based right here in Springfield. Another group on this bill is “Kid Nightmare” coming from St. Louis. You can check out a 25 minute long piece by Kid Nightmare on the player below.
