We’re looking at one heck of a show happening at Black Sheep tonight, with two absolutely epic Springfield band reunions for two bands – Food & Money who have not performed together since 1982, and Backwards Day who have not performed together since 1994. This is truly a once in a lifetime chance for most of us to see these two bands that were both vital in shaping the Springfield punk / new wave / and alternative music scenes. Stream some songs from Food & Money below – the band has an LP of 21 songs including some that are unreleased and recorded in the year 1980 coming out to have in time for this weekend. In addition to the two reunion shows we also have two active and current Springfield bands playing the show tonight. This includes Livin’ Thing – who just recently got back from a week long tour around the midwest. Opening things up is Spell Breaker, featuring Noah Faingold, Scott Faingold of Backwards Day’s son.
The show tonight kicks off right at 7:00 pm. Admission is $10 at the door – if you purchased a ticket in advance we will have your name on a will call list at the door to mark off.
