Ladies and Gentlemen, your 2009 Queen City Shout lineup


It’s award season in Hollywood, a chance to see your favorite celebs wear outfits you can’t pull off you can’t afford while they accept awards for pretending to be someone else. Ridiculous though it can be at times, it’s the film industry’s time to shine a spotlight on itself for its ability to entertain and, at its best, inspire. It’s also the time of year a spotlight is shown on local music: Queen City Shout, the Borders concert series conceived by the store’s music honcho and resident local-music great Eddie Gumucio. Each year Springfield’s best take over the store for performances outside their normal setting, going from smoky clubs and late nights under lights to early-evening strum sessions in a family-friendly atmosphere. This year’s Queen City Shout lineup of shows goes on for almost a month, and the first performance is only a few weeks away. The full list of artists follows after the jump.
