Two excellent bands have upcoming shows in the Springfield area…

Captain Rat and the Blind RivetsBack in college, I used to practically be a groupie of Captain Rat and the Blind Rivets from Champaign, Illinois. They put on a terrific show featuring hits from the 50’s and 60’s, and they are going to be in Springfield this Saturday, June 24th at Buster’s Sports Bar and Grill up by the State Fairgrounds from 9 p.m. – 1 a.m.

And on August 5th, the BoDeans will be back in the area at the Decatur Celebration. The BoDeans are probably most famous for “Closer To Free”, which was used as the theme song for the TV show Party of Five.

I don’t think I’ll be able to go see Captain Rat this weekend, but I’m definitely making plans to go see the BoDeans. Hope to see you there!
