So Much Water (and music!) so Close To Home
It may be raining cats and dogs (or any other less cliched species) but there are still three - count 'em - music festivals happening in the Springfield area today.
The Black Sheep (S. Grand & 11th) is playing host to DumbFest from 1-10PM featuring twenty (!) punk and alternative bands, including Tenement, Big Eyes, Lumpy & the Dumpers and Soap Scum.
For the more THC-minded music listener, Donnie's Homespun at Vinegar Hill is hosting HempFest from 1PM-1AM featuring Hot Bag O Donuts, Kamikaze Kush, comedian Brandon Judd and a variety of other speakers and musicians sure to please even the most finicky environmentally-concerned stoner.
Meanwhile, over at Refuge Ranch (3845 Delay Road in Pawnee) the Horse Show is already underway and goes until 10 PM. Presented by the Radon Lounge, the show is headlined by Lauryn Peacock.
Don't sit on your duffs and watch the raindrops hitting your window - get out and see some damn music!
