Four More Additions to Dumb Fest 5: Death Valley, Bleak Age, The Dry Look, Video Grave


Happy Friday! T.G.I.F, right? It’s hard to believe it but we are now exactly three weeks away from the kickoff of Dumb Fest 5 happening on June 9th, 10th, and 11th right here in Springfield. With the festival being three weeks away, we have four more last minute addition bands to add to the lineup, which should be right around 50 bands right now. Those additions are:

Death Valley (Portage, Indiana)
Bleak Age (Oklahoma City, OK)
The Dry Look (Champaign, IL)
Video Grave (Bloomington, IN)

Cool! Death Valley will be playing Saturday June 10th of the fest and the other three will be playing on Sunday, June 11th. Check out some music from Video Grave streaming below (also pictured above). Find a facebook event for Dumb Fest 5 right here along with the full lineup and more info on individual shows. Also find the list and links to listen to all of the bands on our Dumb Fest 5 page right here.


May 25th at Black Sheep: Ben Dipper, Blind Social, Opposite Good, Mike Fitz


Greetings! We hope all of you that went out to the show at Bar None last night had a good time and are ready for the weekend. We have no shows at Black Sheep this weekend, but we do have a pretty packed schedule next weekend starting with this show on Thursday, May 25th. This show features ambient / indiepop artist Ben Dipper from Kansas. Stream some of Ben’s music on the player below. We also have local groove rock band Blind Social on board, who we haven’t seen at Black Sheep for a minute. Other opener includes the ambient solo act “Opposite Good,” and then we are kicking things off with a performance by Mike Fritz of the band Spooky Action.

This show will start at 7:00 pm. Admission is $5. Check out a facebook event for this one right here. Also be sure to check out our shows page for a better look at everything coming up at Black Sheep this summer.
