We can’t believe it, have we really not yet announced our big plans for New Years Eve? Yeesh! For 2017 we promise to be a little more on top of things here at blacksheepspringfield.com. We have some big news for New Years Eve this year- there are no shows happening at Black Sheep, BUT we are teaming up this year with the downtown First Night Event to bring you a very special all ages show taking place downtown! The show is happening in a space located at 314 E Monroe St which is usually Kari Bedford Photography. This is part of the Springfield Art Council‘s Big “First Night” event, and you can find more information on that right here. Let’s take a look at who’s playing our show! We have SAP – and little rumor has it that instead of SAP it’s going to be continuing band lotto band “Lincoln’s Tomb” playing. We also have the Taylorville band Stems performing. Up before that is Mark Lee Reynolds or “MLR”. You can find some of Mark’s new music streaming on the player below. Opening things up is the solo performer Kate Ridge.
That show will start downtown right at 7:00 pm. We will be taking a break at 8:00 to enjoy the fireworks happening downtown, how nice! Admission this one is $5 for ages 17 and under and $10 for ages 18 and up (sorry). Check out a facebook event for this one right here. More information on an aftershow happening at Skank Skates coming later today!
