Spacetones on your virtual radio tonight

spacetones

We just got word that local hip hop group The Spacetones will be on The Growl, Missouri State University’s campus online radio station, tonight at 11 p.m. The group will be on the show promoting its upcoming show Friday night at The Underground below The Magic Bean Coffeehouse. (To clarify, we’ll be referring to all 728 Wall St. shows in the future by that location’s other name, The Warehouse, to avoid confusion.) The concert should be awesome, and the radio interview should be cool, as well. Watch for some in-studio performances and more. You can tune in to it at the appropriate time by clicking here.

Rock out to say “thanks”

April 17, 2009

meisa-hometown-heroesIt’s been a little while–December 4, in fact–since the Music and Entertainment Industry Student Association (MEISA) at Missouri State University last put on a concert. The December event was held for charity, but one could argue its latest show is no less a benefit. Tomorrow night’s Hometown Heroes show at Nathan P. Murphy’s is a special event in honor of Springfield’s military and emergency response groups–anyone who shows military, police, fire or medic ID gets a $2 discount to get it–and includes some musical heroes from MEISA members’ various hometowns: Tulsa, OK (Arlis Moon), Springfield, MO (Cooter Brown), Blue Springs, MO (Grizzly J. Berry) and St. Louis, MO (All Falls Down). Cover charge is $5 for regular admission, $9 for those younger than 21 and $3 for military, police, fire and medical staffers with ID.
