You won’t see it on the band’s website, but Rev Theory, who has played Springfield a time or two, recently made a temporary change to its rhythm guitar player. The new guy: Jacob Showalter, best known in The Springfield Scene as guitarist for Playing With Matches. Showalter worked for a time as a bartender at downtown karaoke bar (and periodic live music spot) Bugsy Malone’s and still keeps in contact with the staff there, and the news was posted to the Bugsy’s events blog. It’s not a long-term move from the sound of it, but it opens up possibilities for the future. It has happened before, after all. We’ll let you know more as we find out.

Local production companies have been giving us a steady build-up in the number of popular-touring-band concerts in Springfield recently. While Korn and Girl Talk may be the crescendo–the year is still young, so we’re not holding our breath just yet–the schedule keeps getting better. The latest addition: FM Productions is bringing Rev Theory back to Springfield Monday, May 18 for a show with Cavo, along with locals Pillbox and As Of Now. Yes, two slots for local rock bands, and no slouches either. You can get tickets at all Metrotix outlets in Springfield–Stick It In Your Ear, Kaleidoscope, Vintage Stock, The Shrine Mosque box office and metrotix.com–and the doors will open at 8 p.m.
