Changes to Palen Music’s closed-door sale: Bands, put down your weapons!

March 26, 2009

palenspringfieldsouthBrandon Welch, director of online sales for Palen Music Center in Springfield, wrote to inform us that there have been a handful of changes made to this Saturday’s closed-door sale. The sale is something of a tradition at Palen, but the store was working in some cool new wrinkles to make an otherwise special day into a mega-event. Well… who’s up for Plan B? We’ll tell you what it is after the break.



Another one bites the dust? Saturday’s Celebrating Queen show CANCELED

You mean I'm NOT coming to Springfield?! AAAAAHHHHH!!!!

You mean I'm NOT coming to Springfield?! AAAAAHHHHH!!!!

We know several people anxiously awaiting this Saturday’s scheduled tribute show Celebrating Queen concert at the Gillioz Theatre, and we’re sorry to say they’re going to be disappointed. We’ve received word that the group’s promoters canceled the show, reportedly for lack of time to, well, promote it. Gillioz representatives are hopeful they can reschedule the group for a second attempt later this year, but in the meantime we’ll have to wait for our fix of such classics as “Killer Queen” and “Radio Ga Ga,” or just listen to the radio. Those who purchased advance tickets will receive full refunds through Missouri State Tix, not the Gillioz Theatre box office.


Ready for more Homegrown? March 28 w/Super String Theory, Assembly Line Gods, Knife*Death

March 24, 2009

homegrownQ102 is on a roll. The last Homegrown concert with Levee, Berlin Drop and Bender drew a raucous crowd to Nathan P. Murphy’s to rock out like it was 1976. To keep the momentum going, the station is taking its monthly rock show in another direction: free-range prog rock. Let’s get experimental, shall we? Super String Theory headlines this month’s edition of Homegrown, along with metal up-and-comers Assembly Line Gods and the barely controlled madness known as Knife*Death. They’ll all pile into the Outland Ballroom High Life Live Martini Lounge Saturday night (March 28) under the sweet lighting and audio system. Trip-the-light fantastic? Quite possibly.

NO, really. How much event CAN Palen Music pack into one day?

March 11, 2009

palenspringfieldsouthLast summer’s battle of the bands at Palen Music was a resounding success, with bands from all genres and age groups performing for a panel of judges throughout the day inside the store and in the neighboring parking lot. The event was so successful, in fact, that Palen is bringing it back in conjunction with another of its extravaganzas; the combination might be the most mind-blowing day ever organized in our local record stores.
