Because four nights a week isn’t enough: Trash Angels add weekly Sunday-night shows


trashangelsgoThere may be no band in the city of Springfield that works as much as Trash Angels does. The local blues and rock group can be seen and heard onstage almost any night of the week, with the exception of a brief respite coming up to record its next album, and even that won’t be a long break. Frankly, they like it that way; guitarist Donnie Ray professes to being most comfortable when performing, and the band is one of the few in town that can make a living exclusively through playing music. So it comes as no great surprise that Trash Angels has added another weekly show to its already-busy schedule (they currently play weekly Monday shows at Dennis’ Place and Thursdays at The Daily Pub, as well as weekend shows at various clubs); the surprise comes in the location: Classics Sports Cafe & Bar inside the Clarion Hotel (3333 S. Glenstone Ave.),where the band will be playing every Sunday night beginning August 2. Rock inside a sports bar/hotel bar? It’s not as far-fetched as one might think; the bar has hosted DJs and poker tournaments in the past, so why not a full-fledged concert? We just hope Donnie Ray doesn’t attempt to play his wireless guitar while making a trip to and from the men’s restroom; the closest one to the bar is down a hallway leading back into the hotel. Then again, maybe we do want him to try it…
