The Show Report, 8/19: Red Collar night is finally here


Tonight brings to Springfield a show several weeks in the making, and it’s a feel-good feather in the city’s musical cap to boot. It’s story time: A few weeks ago we received an email from North Carolina-based rock group Red Collar, a talented young band with the good fortune to have already played shows opening for acts such as The Gaslight Anthem, Riverboat Gamblers, …And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead and more… and they just released their first album, Pilgrim. They had the bad fortune of having a show date fall through between their Little Rock and St. Louis dates, and they wanted to put something together in Springfield. We put out the APB with clubs we thought would suit their style, and the band was not only hooked up with a first-time-ever show in Springfield tonight at Lindberg’s, but discussions are underway for another show in town at Nathan P. Murphy’s when the band passes back through. The city’s music venues turned out for the band; hopefully its music heads will, too. Mark Bilyeu will also be putting on his acoustic performance at the bar earlier in the evening, the next-to-last acoustic show Bilyeu currently has booked in the club. Catch both while you can.

    There’s some great music that comes out of the Carolinas….I should know, that’s where I’m from!

    Red Collar was outstanding, too. Watch for them to come back next month; I’ll pass along the date when it’s confirmed.

    we were supposed to play a show with these guys in lexington but then they got lost and missed it, but we still got to eat pancakes together. I wish I would’ve read this yesterday. Nice guys (and gal).
