Yes if you can believe it, this is a real show that we are announcing today happening in exactly one month from now on Friday, August 18th at Black Sheep. All of the fans of the ancient and almost forgotten genre of “ska” music can come out of hiding for this one because we have legendary ska punk band MU330 from St. Louis coming to play Black Sheep. MU330 formed almost 30 years ago in 1988, and have released 6 or 7 albums most of which on Asian Man Records and have been known as a notable third wave ska band. Dan Potthast (vocals / guitar) of the band did make a guest appearance on the Black Sheep Radio Show at the end of last year and has also performed solo sets at Bar None and The Harm House in recent years. Rounding off the bill we have the two grand pappy punk bands of Springfield – NIL8 and The Timmys. This will be NIL8’s first performance at Black Sheep since Hobgob 2015. It’s been an even long time since The Timmys have played at Black Sheep at this point – the last time being in February of 2015. This show will also be a celebration of 20 years of The Timmys being a band – their first show was with MU330 in 1997 here in town at Viele’s Planet.
This show which is sure to be one of our biggest this summer – will start at 7:00 pm, doors open at 6:30 pm. Admission will be $12 in advance and $15 at the door. Advance tickets are now available online right here. You can also purchase them at Dumb Records during store hours. Find a facebook event for this one right here.
