Lindberg’s and Big Smith singer and guitarist Mark Bilyeu have a special attachment going back many years in Springfield. Lindy’s was the room Bilyeu cut his teeth in as a showgoer and as a musician in the days of the bar’s original incarnation, and he’s made several appearances since as a performer. Nothing like next month, however, when Bilyeu will be playing a solo show every Wednesday night from 8 to 10 p.m. It’s the first weekly gig Bilyeu has taken on that we’re aware of since the days of Blame Lord Killjoy in spring of last year. The shows are scheduled so far to begin this Wednesday, July 29 and continue through the entire month of August, all with identical 8 p.m. start times and $4 covers.
On a related note, how busy are Wednesday nights in Springfield now? Bilyeu at Lindberg’s joins Urban Legend at High Life, Greasy Chair at Patton Alley Pub, weekly bookings at Dennis’ Place and the occasionally resurrected Punk Rock Wednesday at The Outland. Who needs a weekend?
