FourFourFest 2009: Local music gets its day with 18 bands on South Street, 2 stages, all day…FREE

September 3, 2009

Local music, now is your time. You ask for something big for local music and here it is. We took submissions for two weeks back in July and had hoped there would be a lot of interest in the 16 spots available for the event’s performers and on its accompanying for-charity compilation CD. The results were even better than we could have hoped for. More than 50 bands sent material in, making the already unsavory job of whittling down bands we like that much more difficult. After a lot of careful consideration, we believe we’ve put together an outdoor all-local music festival representative and worthy of The Springfield Scene.

We’re shutting down South Street for an entire day between McDaniel and Walnut on Saturday, September 19. We’re putting 2 stages and a DJ tent on it to run from roughly 11:30am–11:00pm with music going all day. There will be food available and cool sponsors showing you what they’re all about. There will also be a few bars open all day as well to serve as beer gardens (being that you can’t have alcohol on a public street thanks to Springfield’s open container law). Regardless, this will be a day full of fun and music with 18 bands + DJ’s spinning all day, on South Street and best of all…its free.

The Show Report, 8/6: Welcome Back…

August 6, 2009

Tonight reminds us of the joys of returning to the familiar, with two good examples to back it up:

* Eric Guinn plays his first show back tonight as the bassist for blues-rock group Trash Angels, who themselves are back in a familiar place–The Daily Pub, where they have been playing every Thursday night for years. Look for Guinn to bring out even more of the band’s rocker side.

* The Seed are back at Tonic Ultralounge. Wait, let’s back up a bit… Tonic (next to Big Whiskey’s on Park Central East) has been hosting weekly Thursday-night live music shows all summer, and The Seed’s performance ranks as one of the most memorable. Lance, Thom and Rico are back to give it another go in a spot they haven’t played in a couple of months but were a big hit in last time.

Rock Talk 8/2 with Offset, Bringers of the Dawn, Ryan Piotrowski of Rock On Music Video Competition and Good Times

August 3, 2009

kzrqrocktalklogo1Hungry for good local-music radio? Here’s a recipe:

Ingredients:

Offset

Bringers of the Dawn

Ryan Piotrowski of the Rock On Music Video Competition

Good Times

Instructions:

1. Add Offset to talk about opening for tonight’s Primer 55 show at The Outland Ballroom. Stir gently in a large bowl.

2. Add Bringers of the Dawn and a series of quirky-yet-amazing, shirtless in-studio musical performances.* Mix with above.

3. Add a dash of Ryan Piotrowski discussing the upcoming screenings for the Rock On competition at Moxie Cinema

4. Add 1 cup of Good Times talking about Wednesday’s Bloody Battle of the Bands at Remington’s Southside (1655 W. Republic Rd.), sprinkling performances from other participating acts to make up Four from The FourFour.

5. Stir gently over low heat until done.

Just like that, you’ve got last night’s episode of Rock Talk on Z 106.7, which can serve as many people as you’d like and leaves a satisfying, heartburn-free feeling at the end of the desired serving. Way better than takeout, take it from us. Best of all, it reheats well the next day, as you’ll find out after the break.

* They used the shirts to muffle the drum kit inside the studio. Trust us, it was necessary. However, ladies, if you’re curious we hear there may be video available later.

The Show Report, 6/25: We love fliers

June 25, 2009

june25flyer copyWe know the Cooter Brown/Bringers of the Dawn/Saracee show tonight at The Outland Ballroom will be a big show and a good one, but the truth is it is just one of several very good shows going on tonight. We lead with their show because, well, they provided a visual aid, and we like it. The flier depicts a man smashing himself in the head with a large bottle, and it’s remarkably well captured. Alright, enough flier talk. Cooter Brown, in our show-going experience, has really come into its own in recent months, and they team up with two solid groups with slightly experimental approaches to their music. It should make for a good expect-the-unexpected time.

Also happening tonight:
