It’s Friday night and tonight is going to be a little bit different from a regular show here at Black Sheep! We will be hosting a presentation/performance by Stephen Houldsworth- St. Louis based photographer, and activist as well as many other things. You may recognize Stephen as one of the photographers taking photos at Dumb Fest 3-D this past summer. Here is a quick description of what will be happening, taken from a similar event held earlier this month in St. Louis:
Love him or hate him, you have to admit Stephen Houldsworth has opinions and is not afraid to share them. In this one-man show, “Protest & Punk shows, while making other plans,” Houldsworth will share stories and spoken-word pieces, as well as answer audience questions, about his life as an activist, music fan, artist, academic, and cultural critic. Whether in the streets of Ferguson. the DIY basements of South city, or the boardrooms of the regions most venerable institutions, Houldsworth brings his unique perspective to all his experiences – and, for one night only, you can take a journey inside his thoughts and feelings.
We encourage anyone and everyone to come out to this! Doors for this will open at 7:00 pm and the presentation will kick off at 7:30 pm. There will also be two bands playing later on in the night at 9:00 pm- one being Sunwyrm from St. Louis, the other being a surprise Springfield band. Admission will be $5, and any additional donations will go towards activist causes. Find a facebook event for this right here.
