The Show Report, 6/27: UNITY!

June 27, 2009

Tonight is the night the Springfield Music Scene brings together a wide variety of genres under one roof (Remmington’s Downtown) for the sake of, well, just showing it can be done. Roots Of Mankind, Queen City Saints,  Jam Room, The Spacetones, Falcon Punch, We Voyagers and Only the Brave will all grace the stage tonight, with an added plus: The show also marks the release party for Roots Of Mankind’s new album, Pangaea. While we can’t definitively say a show such as this has never happened before, we can say having this many music styles (as many as six, by our count) under one roof for one show has never happened in our memory. Watch for a gi-normous crowd–hopefully staying through the whole show–and a positive, even festive mood throughout the room.

Ah, but if you’re like us, you like to travel around a bit. Well, have we got a lineup for you:


Stimulate THIS: Scarswillfade reunite–for a low-dough show!

June 17, 2009

LowDoughFlierThe Fliermakers are calling it The Economic Stimulus Show, and it’s hard to disagree. Consider: Not only is Scarswillfade getting back together after a long break away from a stage, but the band’s first show back is headlining at Nathan P. Murphy’s June 27 with Assembly Line Gods, The Final Piece, Knife*Death and Change Today for–get this–a $2 cover. Scarswillfade also says it’s working on all-new material and, as they put it, “saying goodbye to all the old songs.” A show full of never-heard-before stuff?! It could be a reality. Find out June 27; hell, it will only cost you $2 anyway.

New music from The Final Piece

April 9, 2009

The Final Piece, FourFourFest, Nathan P. Murphy's, November 15, 2008

We’re two days from The Final Piece‘s next concert, sharing the lineup at Nathan P. Murphy’s with Screwtape Letters, Glass Bottom Boat Ride and Burnt Echoes, which is playing its final show. Want some extra enticement to go? How about the prospect of all-new tunes? The band debuted one this morning on its MySpace page, titled “Where the Heart Is,” and promises there are more on the way. Sneak preview of what we might expect to hear at the show? Only time will tell. In the meantime, hit up the band’s MySpace and enjoy some fresh tunes.

Another goodbye: Burnt Echoes to play last show 4/11

March 30, 2009

burntechoeslogosmallAdd this to the breakups we didn’t see coming: Burnt Echoes has called it quits and has announced that its show at Nathan P. Murphy’s on April 11 will be its last. No official reason was given by the group. The band says on its blog that its members will continue to work on various musical projects, separately as well as with one another in some cases. In fact, it doesn’t rule out a reincarnation of Burnt Echoes with some new members somewhere down the road. However, the current incarnation is dead, or will be soon.

The final show will be shared with The Final Piece, Glass  Bottom Boat Ride and Screwtape Letters. So… will BE get to headline now, since they won’t get another chance again?
