Get your Kanye shades on. Black Box Revue is booking live music again.


shadesBlack Box Revue carries a reputation for being one of the best weekly dance parties in Springfield, but the hidden truth is the Black Box DJs bring some of the most out-of-the-norm touring music acts the city gets to see. The group took a break over the holidays to just spin the tracks and make people dance, but with students back in town the bands are back, too, to add a little rock to your dance night at The Outland. Make clicking motions over the link below to see what you have in store for your listening pleasure in the weeks ahead.

Check out this lineup:

Friday, JAN. 16th — LONDON CALLING (vjs) from St. Louis
Friday, JAN. 23rd — SCI-FI PARTY featuring RECORDER from Tulsa. We will also be showing local film APOLLO.
Friday, JAN. 30th — UNICORN BASEMENT (& MC/VL) from Minneapolis
Friday, FEB. 6th — GO MOTION from Omaha
Friday, FEB. 13th — CODEBREAKER from Milwaukee
Friday, FEB. 20th — FRENCH HORN REBELLION from Milwaukee

Even we don’t know who all of these acts are–a fact that, frankly, excites us one hell of a lot–but we do know French Horn Rebellion is a show Springfield’s music-savvy residents have anticipated for quite some time now. Let the countdown begin…

    That’s an understandable opinion with regard to the DJs, perhaps, but not the live bands. I suggest giving them a try.
