September 23rd at Black Sheep: Brandon Austin, HILGY, Jermaine Bollinger


Today we have another release show to tell you about for a local artist happening at Black Sheep. It’s happening this month on Saturday, September 23rd and will be the release show for Brandon Austin, who is a solo R&B performer. Brandon is releasing a CD called “Beauty in Ordinary Things” which is already out on iTunes and all of that good stuff. The show at Black Sheep will be the official release. You can check out the official music video for one of those tracks – “The Only One” on the player directly below this post. One of the other artists opening up the show is “HILGY” also from here (?). Then we also have Jermaine Bollinger opening things up.

This one starts at 7:00 pm (doors at 6:30), and is $5. Check out a facebook event for the show right here. Also check out our shows page for a list of everything we have coming up at Black Sheep this fall.


Small Man: “Demo”


Oops, we may be a tad late to the game on this one again but today we bring you a new demo from a new Springfield-Toronto straight-edge hybrid group called “Small Man.” Featuring members of bands Mace and Pryss. You can stream that new four-track demo from Small Man on the player below. The demo is being released by Prescience Tapes, local cassette label. You can expect physical copies of this release to appear at some point inside Dumb Records. Head over to the Prescience Tapes bandcamp to download the demo at your own price.

Small Man does not have any live performances lined up in Springfield or anywhere announced right now, but be on the lookout for some more Small Man in the future.
