Like what we’re doing? Please help us help you help us help you…

July 28, 2009

Dare I say it, but the “scene” is growing. That’s thank to a lot of hard work from bands, venues, and promoters. I mean seriously, look at all the freakin’ touring acts and national acts we’re getting now ‘a days—I’ve NEVER seen this many bands come through this town…EVER. So thank the promoters, venues, sound guys, bartenders, door guys, etc. Most importantly thank  YOU for visiting our little site as often as you do (hopefully every day) and please keep it up. We’re needing a little help though. Chris and I are hard workin’ our day jobs due to lack of any cash, so there may be a little dip in posts here and there. That’s because we can’t spend hours and hours each day scouring the interwebs like we normally do. This is where we need your help. And we DO need your help. We think this is pretty important, so please click through and read on and pitch in.


More info on upcoming scene unity show

May 6, 2009

holdinghandsWhen the guys from Roots of Mankind got in touch with us about putting together a barrier-breaking show for the local music scene, it reminded us of the “Springfield Bands Holding Hands” meetings  of a few years ago. Now comes word of the important difference: This show is a reality. All of the details are nailed down, including the list of performers, and we have it all after the break.

Ladies and Gentleman, is proud to present the eighth episode of The FourFour Show with Kurtzender. This is also a special episode because it features a yet-to-be released new song (sans vocals) from SSLYBY. So, sit back, relax, and turn that noggin into mush with us. 


The State of the Scene Address

February 24, 2009

podiumPresident Obama will give his “address to the nation” tonight, a polite substitue phrasing for the State of the Union address since he hasn’t presided over the union long enough to talk about how the past year went. In the spirit of the occasion, I thought it would be fun to prepare something similar, if a bit more localized and targeted. What results is a long-winded pep talk with a bunch of flowery speechified language that, hopefully, is an enjoyable and fulfilling read. Otherwise I’ve blown a lot of time sounding like a gasbag. Decide for yourself after the break.


Memories… of the way we were…

January 15, 2009

Note: That is the last time you will read a Barbara Streisand reference on this site. Ever. It’s appropriate here, though, as the Riverfront Times today published an article looking back on the often-forgotten (or, perhaps for some, just blocked out) hardcore punk scene alive in the Ozarks in the early and mid-’90s. For those of us going to shows at the time, it’s a fascinating trip down memory lane. For anyone who got into local showgoing later, it’s a demonstration of how much the music scene has softened and become more accessible. Either way, it’s worth a post here, in our opinion. Thanks to the open-eyed gang at MoRawk for pointing it out.
