August 17th at Black Sheep: Starlorde, Droids Blood, The Dry Look, Evan Mitchell


We have a doozy of a show coming up here in about one month on Thursday, August 17th featuring some great punk acts from different parts of the state. The one big time Springfield band on the bill is Starlorde – or are they from another planet? Hmmm… The touring act on this bill is Droid’s Blood from Chicago. Droid’s Blood features members of a good number of bands that have performed at Black Sheep before including Broken Prayer, Sputter, and more. Check out some of their music streaming on the player below. This show also features The Dry Look – one of the closing acts on Dumb Fest 5 last month who played inside Dumb Records. If you missed their set at the fest be sure to catch them here. Opening things up we have a rare performance by solo punk act Evan Mitchell from Taylorville, IL. Hi Evan.

This show will be starting at 7:00 pm 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 look at what else is coming up at Black Sheep later this summer.
