Young Eyes Record Release!

12 Mar

Our next show on April 1st is going to be a Young Eyes record release party! We’re so excited to be once again hosting Brian Lee and the gang as they’re definitely one of the best when it comes to central Illinois indie rock.

The Young Eyes

Ever since falling in love with their previous band Brian Lee & His Orchestra, we’ve been huge fans of whatever these guys do. However, once it was announced the Orchestra was morphing into a new kind of band, we were a bit worried. We really liked the current thing and didn’t like seeing it go away. Fortunately the Young Eyes are fantastic!┬áThe new sound has a ┬ávintage timelessness to it that at the same time sounds modern and fresh. Due to the band’s business outside of being a band, it’s a bit difficult to actually see them perform, so make sure you don’t miss your chance this time around.

Also on the ticket is another local indie icon, Kirk Donley. Kirk is a veteran in the scene as he’s performed in quite a few bands, and is currently half of the Dandelion Pickers. When not playing shows, Kirk and his wife also give music lessons. If you’re someone looking to learn a thing or two, they’re the people to see.

We’re also excited to once again host local springfield rockers Stereo Static. Their last appearance was at last year’s Horse Show and they have been playing shows around town since.

Outside of music, we’ll be displaying visual art by Immanuel Ahiable. Last show we experimented with a small art gallery format for Amanda Greive and it worked out really well. It was a challenge to figure out how to do this right in a dimly lit basement but it worked out so well that we’re excited to make this a regular thing. Immanuel will be showing some original paintings and maybe even video!
