Today on Black Sheep Radio: Devin Hayes


Today is another Friday, so that means another episode of The Black Sheep Radio Show. Today we are pulling out a surprise special guest from here in town far beyond the usual scene of Black Sheep artists and performers – and that is NBC’s Boy Band™ finalist Devin Hayes. Devin is an active musician who currently tours the country and is determined to hit it hard now that his time on Boy Band is done. He had a hit single come out last month, “Right Here” – and will also be performing at Boondocks on this Sunday, October 8th. We’ll be talking to Devin about how far he’s gotten and where he plans on taking his career from here! Wow!

The Black Sheep Radio Show airs today and every Friday from 4:00 to 6:00 pm on 88.3 WQNA fm. You can stream it live during that same time on Also check out our radio show page for a few downloadable episodes of the past.


Tonight at Black Sheep: Poetry Fight Club


We have a pretty busy schedule this weekend at Black Sheep, and you can expect these next few events we have lined up to be a little bit different from the ordinary for us starting with a “Poetry Fight Club” tonight! Then we have a scary movie night tomorrow night and a plant show on Monday! The Poetry Fight Club is a newer group in Springfield we are allowing to to take over our space tonight. What’s this all about? Here’s a description of what to expect from a facebook event:

Poetry Fight Club is an intimate monthly event hosted by Johari Idusuyi and Emma Wilson. Each month, we propose a question, and then at the event, we all share a poem that centers around that month’s question. The goal is to promote the creation of new work through these prompts, and also to encourage attendees to get comfortable sharing what they’ve written.

For October we ask: What are you harvesting? This prompt is extremely open and flexible! Interpret it how ever you would like. To participate in Poetry Fight Club, bring a poem that answers this question to share with the group.

Bring a pen and paper too for a writing exercise.

This will kick off at 6:30 pm on Friday, October 6th. Feel free to come out if it sounds like something you would be interested in! Admission is $3. Find a facebook event for this one right here. Also be sure to check out our shows page for a good look at what else is coming up at Black Sheep this autumn.
