Saturday at Black Sheep: Runaway Brother, Farseek, Bottom Bracket, Jessica Knight


Wow, have we really not told you about this show yet!? This one is coming up this upcoming weekend on Saturday, July 8th. You are not going to want to miss it. For this one we have the band Runaway Brother returning from Ohio – the band last played here over two years ago in the spring of 2014 along with Looming. Stream some of Runaway Brother’s newer music on the player embedded below. Runaway brother will be touring with the solo project “Farseek” also from Ohio and also familiar to the Black Sheep stage. For this one we have local band Bottom Bracket on the bill. Opening things up is also a rare solo performance by Jessica Knight of Looming.

This show will start at 7:00 pm on the dot, and admission is $6. Check out a facebook event for this one right here. Also be sure to check out our shows page for a good look at what else we have coming up at Black Sheep this summer!


Videos: Backwards Day at Black Sheep 7-1-17


We do have some video footage of the incredible two reunion sets that took place at Black Sheep this past weekend for any of you who were as silly enough as to miss out on the once in a lifetime opportunity to see Food & Money or Backwards Day. Today we have a snippet of Backwards Day performing one of their early hit tunes “Revolutionary” at Black Sheep this past Saturday during the show. You can check out that video below.

Expect a video of Food & Money and also some photos of the show to turn up at some point soon. You can also probably expect a full video of all four sets from that night to become available on Gordon Chang’s Macomb Events youtube channel later on. Also check out our vids/pics page for a list of videos taken over the years at Black Sheep.

New Band Pages: Spell Breaker


Welcome to a new week, this morning we are bringing you a fresh new band page for the new-ish local band Spell Breaker. (That’s two words there, not “Spellbreaker”). Spell Breaker formed earlier this year with members of former Springfield bands SAP and Lincoln’s Tomb. You can check out their new band page to find out more about the band right here. Spell Breaker just played at Black Sheep two nights ago at the big Food & Money and Backwards Day reunion show. Their next performance lined up is for Black Sheep Fest 2017, which is just a little over one month away. They also have no music recorded right now, but you can expect some to be coming very soon.

Check out any of our 60+ current band pages right here. Do you play in a Springfield band or are a local musician who has not gotten a page set up with us yet? Send us an email to and we will work with you to set something up!
