Recently, a fellow public radio journo wrote a piece about the Black Sheep scene for Noisey, a branch of Vice Media. If you are unfamiliar with the venue, and even if you are a regular attendee - it's definitely worth a read (and a look/listen - the pictures & music speak volumes.)

This week Rachel and Scott take a trip to corner of 11th and South Grand in Springfield where a block or so known as Southtown contains an in-door skate park, skateboard shop, music venue, soon-to-be-rehabbed recording studio and Dumb Records.

If you’re not sure what exactly “Southtown” is – imagine you’re driving down South Grand Avenue in Springfield toward Rochester.
