So who’s down to jam? Murphy’s makes its stage yours tomorrow night

August 26, 2009

natepsIf you listened to Sunday night’s Rock Talk on Z 106.7 FM, whether live on The Radios or less-than-live on The Internets, you likely heard about an important event coming up in the history of downtown blues and rock club Nathan P. Murphy’s. The club turns 28 this year, and unlike some things of similar age the club arguably looks and feels better than it has since its very early years. To show off the new digs, the club is holding an open house of sorts tomorrow night for musicians and fans alike. Wanna check out a music show without a cover? Bands, wanna check out a room to play in that is probably different than you remember? Tomorrow is your night. Read on after the break.


FREE music at the Ozark Empire Fair: Palen Music Center’s local stage

July 31, 2009

Sure, there’s a band performing every night at the Grandstand Stage during the Ozark Empire Fair, but you didn’t think the rest of the day would be all Ferris wheels and funnel cakes, did you? The Fair crowd is an audience too large not to spotlight local music in front of, and it turns out Palen Music Center is answering the call with a FREE concert stage near the main entrance throughout the Fair’s 10 days. Wanna know who you’ll get to rock out to between sessions of knocking rubber duckies over with a water gun? Read the full schedule after the break.


Reminder: Ozark Empire Fair starts tomorrow. We’re not telling you cuz you need more plush toys.

BearsWe stand on the metaphorical precipice of one of Springfield’s more unusual musical rituals: The Ozark Empire Fair‘s lineup of nightly featured acts. Granted, the 10-day salute to stomach-jostling rides and goofy games has a decidedly non-musical agenda during most of the day, once the sun starts to go down there have often been some well-known names taking the stage. This year is no different: The concerts kick off with The Beach Boys tomorrow night at 8 p.m. and concludes with country stars Montgomery Gentry on August 6 . (For a complete main stage schedule, click here.) The moral of the story: Arrive significantly before showtime and have good aim when it comes to winning your chosen carnival games. We don’t want you missing any of the music fun. Click here for ticket information for any of the Ozark Empire Fair concerts.

cstreetjamNot only is C-Street Jam not dead, one could argue it’s better than ever before. Even the first C-Street Jam, conceived as a showcase for Commercial Street’s image rehabilitation in 2006, kept all of its acts to one stage at a time. This year’s event, scheduled for May 9, will have six stages in all, and a pretty sweet rosters of performers to populate them. Find out who is part of the resuscitation of Commercial Street’s music festival after the jump.
