September 15th at The Barrel Head: Stereo Static (Final Show), Synzu, Blind Social, Fill In The Blank


Here’s a show happening in town outside of Black Sheep in a little over a week that we feel needs mentioned on our site. It’s an all ages one too! On Friday, September 15th at The Barrel Head (1577 Wabash Ave) there is an all-local rock show happening which will unfortunately be the last performance by alternative rock band Stereo Static, who has been active playing shows at Black Sheep for the past few years. From the band’s facebook page:

We are saddened to announce that Stereo Static will be playing our last show September 15th at The Barrel Head. The members of the band simply wish to go in different musical directions from one another, and there are no hard feelings. We will be giving away our last EP at the show, which will be free as well. More details involving the show and our members’ future projects to come. Thanks for a great 2 years, everyone.

This show will have a great all-local line up also including the experimental instrumental jammy band Synzu, who ended up playing in the wee hours of Black Sheep Fest this past year. Also the far-out Blind Social and pop punk group Fill In The Blank will be performing.

Things start at The Barrel Head at 8:00 pm, and there is no cover (free admission). Find a facebook event right here. Also check out our Springfield shows page where we try to keep a list of shows happening outside of Black Sheep.

We just love bands making new music videos, and we absolutely love this new one released by Stick People last week. This is also the first bit of music that we are getting to hear from the band’s newest release recorded up in Southtown Sound and being released on September 16th on CD at The Black Sheep 12 Year Anniversary Show! The video is for the song “Easier Said,” which comes off of the band’s upcoming CD, Lips. The video was shot and edited by Tyler Tag Gieser.

Check out that new music video below! Also check out our vids/pics page for a few other music videos from the area released over the years.
