Tonight is a very special night. Tonight will feature a show unlike any other show before at Black Sheep. That is because this show, is not for us humans. It is for the plants. That’s right, music for plants. A concert for plants. Plants. Tonight we have Brendan Wells Plant Music coming from Minneapolis, Minnesota. What is that? It is music for plants. Have a listen on the player below. We also have hip hop project “Plants with Human Names“, formerly “Animals with Human Names”. Emasculate Regression is also performing a special farm sounds set for this show. Before that is solo project of Clare Frachey, “Rella.” And opening things up we have Brian Galecki goofing off on the omnichord.
This show will start at 7:00 pm. Here is the big kicker – the show is $7, BUT if you bring your own *living* plant, the show is $3. So bring your plants!
