SOHO this weekend


Tonight and tomorrow, downtown Springfield will be graced with the 8th SOHO Music Festival. Over twenty bands will take to the stage over two days by the Old State Capital Plaza. Some of the bands featured during SOHO are Micah Walk, The Station, Dog of Panic, The Legendary Clampetts and more. You can check out the whole lineup on our sister station’s website Alice.fm. There’ll be food, drinks from Coors Light, vendors and a bunch of music fans. Plus the weather is going to be top notch. SOHO was threatened in early May with Springfield Mayor Mike Houston wanting to put a 9:30 curfew for amplified music. An outpouring of support from the community got the mayor to reverse his decision. So lets get out there and make some noise to show the mayor that the Springfield-area loves live music—even after 9:30 at night! All the proceeds for SOHO go towards the Mini O’Bierne Crisis Nursery.
