The Show Report, 6/27: UNITY!

June 27, 2009

Tonight is the night the Springfield Music Scene brings together a wide variety of genres under one roof (Remmington’s Downtown) for the sake of, well, just showing it can be done. Roots Of Mankind, Queen City Saints,  Jam Room, The Spacetones, Falcon Punch, We Voyagers and Only the Brave will all grace the stage tonight, with an added plus: The show also marks the release party for Roots Of Mankind’s new album, Pangaea. While we can’t definitively say a show such as this has never happened before, we can say having this many music styles (as many as six, by our count) under one roof for one show has never happened in our memory. Watch for a gi-normous crowd–hopefully staying through the whole show–and a positive, even festive mood throughout the room.

Ah, but if you’re like us, you like to travel around a bit. Well, have we got a lineup for you:


Stimulate THIS: Scarswillfade reunite–for a low-dough show!

June 17, 2009

LowDoughFlierThe Fliermakers are calling it The Economic Stimulus Show, and it’s hard to disagree. Consider: Not only is Scarswillfade getting back together after a long break away from a stage, but the band’s first show back is headlining at Nathan P. Murphy’s June 27 with Assembly Line Gods, The Final Piece, Knife*Death and Change Today for–get this–a $2 cover. Scarswillfade also says it’s working on all-new material and, as they put it, “saying goodbye to all the old songs.” A show full of never-heard-before stuff?! It could be a reality. Find out June 27; hell, it will only cost you $2 anyway.

Do-over! Glass Bottom Boat Ride to re-film concert DVD

May 26, 2009

If you were planning to attend local hard-rock group Glass Bottom Boat Ride‘s June 27 concert at The Outland Ballroom, you now have even more reason to. The band used its May 8 concert at the Ballroom to film a live DVD to sell at future shows, but the audio data from the taping was lost. As a result, the band will have to try again, and the band tells us June 27 is the most logical choice. While that’s not a confirmation, we would say keep your eyes peeled for some video equipment around the room while you rock out to the band. Don’t turn around for two long though; we’ve all seen concert videos before, and there are always those people who notice they’re on camera and do they’re best “Hi mom!” attempt at dopehood. Don’t be that guy/girl.

Bands holding hands: Cross-genre megashow coming in June

April 20, 2009

bands-holding-handsA couple of years ago a group of local musicians held regular meetings which led to the creation of Springfield Bands Holding Hands. The idea was simple: promote musical appreciation among different local genres by putting together a series of concerts with bands that might not otherwise play together. If you showed up for the whole show, you could be exposed to music you might otherwise never see while you waited to see the band you came for.

The group didn’t gain traction, but its legacy lives on in a show idea from the guys in Roots Of Mankind. We’ll tell you more about it after the break.
