August 12th at Black Sheep: It’s Me: Ross, Stick People, Special Death, Bottom Bracket


We gotta say we are very excited for this show happening at Black Sheep next month on Saturday, August 12th. This one features an all-star lineup, with the all-star rock band “It’s Me: Ross” who some of you may have caught at Cafe Andiamo during Dumb Fest #5 last month. They are from Columbia, Missouri and will be on tour. Check out their music below. We also have Taylorville rockers Stick People on this bill for a real treat. Another out of town act is “Special Death” – which is a new Chicago-based project featuring Kyle Lang of the project Easter which performed at Black Sheep a few times years ago if anyone remembers them. Opening things up looks like we got the alternative emo band Bottom Bracket making a nice well rounded gig.

This show will start at 7:00 pm and admission is $5. Check out a facebook event for the show right here. Also be sure to check out our shows page for a good look at everything else coming up at Black Sheep in the near future!
