Black Sheep is closing its doors at the end of the month and we wanted to be sure to squeeze one more art event in before it’s all over! (Or at least until we are moved into a downtown space next year). Fun! This one is happening tonight! Starting at 6:00pm. Come out and bring painting close if you want to add to a giant canvas that everyone is going to paint on. There will also be musical acts. This includes Eric Marvel, whose music you can find streaming below. This also includes Imaginary Colours – electronic act that has three releases in the running for our Best of Springfield Music 2018 Poll. Layers will be performing as well – the local two-piece spoken word and guitar act. Glower will be performing as well, the only full band on the bill. Opening up it looks like we have “Neala” the solo project of Kristin Walker.

This event starts a little bit earlier at 6:00pm. Bring $5. Check out a facebook event for this one right here. Also be sure to check out our shows page to take a look at everything lined up from now until we are gone at the end of this month.
