It’s Halloween, and if you don’t have anything planned for tonight and looking for something ghoulish to do – look no further than this show that we have going on. Rumor has it that the Chili Bowl Mullet man will be there (first the mayor, and now this???). This one features a stacked lineup of bands from the area. Starting from the top of that list… we have MAC – doing a set of original material this time around. We also have hardcore band Graveswitcher (very Halloween-themed name). Right in the middle we have a newer St. Louis band called Brute Force, which you can find streaming on the player embedded below. Before them is Glower– three piece grunge/indie band featuring a new lineup. And opening things up is the wild & rowdy punk band Foam Fangers.

This starts at 7:00 pm, costumes are of course very much encouraged. Admission is $5. Find a facebook event for the show right here. Also be sure to check out our shows page for a good look at what else is coming up at Black Sheep the rest of this year.

Have we really not yet made a post for THE Black Sheep Halloween show happening this upcoming Wednesday??? Whoopsies! Well, if you hadn’t figured it out already- we are hosting a show on Halloween. Rumor has it that the Chili Bowl Mullet man will be there (first the mayor, and now this???). This one features a stacked lineup of bands from the area. Starting from the top of that list… we have MAC – doing a set of original material this time around. We also have hardcore band Graveswitcher (very Halloween-themed name).

updatedmacmobilemisfits

It’s the weekend before Halloween! There is so much going on in town this weekend that we can hardly keep up! And there is a big show going on at Black Sheep tonight for all you punk and metal fans. We’ve had the lineup change up a few times on us, and what we are left with is a very stacked five-band show. Tonight we have the band Mobile Deathcamp returning to the Springfield for the first time in nearly five years. Mobile Deathcamp features an ex member of popular metal group GWAR. Stream their music on the player below. The other big feature band on this show is the band MAC – performing as popular horror punk band, The Misfits. Before that we’ve got Uncle Sam’s Mutagenic Children. Then is a brand new band from Jacksonville, Illinois playing some punk/metal that we don’t know a whole lot about called “Champagne Cafe.” Opening things up is a last minute addition of metal rockers also from the Jacksonville area, Nethersphere.

This starts tonight right at 7:00 pm. For admission we are now doing a sliding scale of $7-10, you pick. Find a facebook event for this one right here. And we are about to update the shows page on our website, we promise!

Onward with the show announcements! This one is another big show coming up this upcoming weekend on Saturday! We are very excited to announce the return of Toledo Ohio thrash/metal group Mobile Deathcamp! Mobile Deathcamp features an ex member of the popular punk/metal band GWAR, and performed here at Black Sheep last in January 2014, close to a whole five years ago. Stream some of their music on the player below. This is also going to be an exciting show because we are lucky enough for Springfield punk band MAC to be doing a cover set as The Misfits, in honor of Halloween coming up and all. MAC will be doing an original set as well for our Black Sheep Halloween Show on actual Halloween. We also have hardcore/punk group Uncle Sam’s Mutagenic Children and a brand new group from Jacksonville we know little about called “Champagne Cafe” opening up.

This show starts at 7:00 pm (sorry the flier says 8:00! That was before the addition of MAC). Let’s say admission is $7-10, whatever you think is fair. Check out a facebook event for this one right here. Also be sure to check out our shows page for a look at what else is coming up at Black Sheep in the near future (working on updating it!!!).

We do have a lot of shows piling up in the coming weeks here at Black Sheep to tell you about, and we better start getting through these show announcements here really quick! We have a punk show coming up this Wednesday, October 24th in just a few days. This one may or may not feature new Springfield hardcore band Final Order, we are not sure. There are two touring acts on the bill, both from St. Louis. One is “Chalked Up” – a hardcore / grind band whose music you can find streaming on the player below. The other band they are coming with is Coffin’ Fit– a garage punk group also from St. Louis. Opening things up is completely different genre-wise- a performance by the solo ambient project Pretend I’m Not There.

This show starts at 7:00 pm on Wednesday and admission is $5. Check out a facebook event for the show right here. We are also working on updating our shows page!
