The Little Death do not have any shows lined up at Black Sheep as of right now, but keep an eye out in the near future!

Our current total current band count in Springfield by band pages on our site is now at 45. (We cleaned up the list a bit this weekend). Check those all out on our current bands page right here. Do you play in a band here in town or are a solo project that has not yet set up a page with us? Email us at blacksheepspringfield@gmail.com and we would love to work with you to set something up!

Hey, happy Monday everyone! Thanks to all who came out to our roundtable meeting yesterday to discuss the future of Black Sheep and the future of live music as we know it. Let’s start the week off with another featured band/project – this one has been around for a while, shame on us for taking this long to get a page up! This is Animals With Human Names – the hip hop project of Jim Whitehead also in Say Something, Statues of the Dead, and numerous other bands throughout the ages through pretty much all of Black Sheep’s twelve years of being a venue. Head over to the newly created band page right here to find out more about the project and hear some tunes. And be on the lookout for some AWHN shows here in the future.

Good morning everyone and welcome to a brand new week! Today we are bringing you a new band page for the new Springfield project Glower.

To find out more about the band as well as a link to some demos, check out their band page right here. Glower do not have any shows currently lined up, but be on the lookout very soon.

Welcome to a new week, this morning we are bringing you a fresh new band page for the new-ish local band Spell Breaker. (That’s two words there, not “Spellbreaker”).

Spell Breaker just played at Black Sheep two nights ago at the big Food & Money and Backwards Day reunion show.
