The Black Sheep Cafe in Springfield has been serving up arts and cultural events for 12 years now. The venue will be commemorating that with an annual anniversary show this coming Saturday, Sept. 16th. The bill includes a new trio, Bottom Bracket, that's an "emo/indie outfit with strong punk and math rock influences." (Their music is featured in the interview below.)

Ten years ago, three friends got together in New Jersey and formed an outfit called the Screaming Females. They were brought up in the gritty DIY scene, producing their own albums, doing their own promotion, and playing in houses and basements. These days, they still play in houses and basements, but they travel across the country doing it (and they also play in some more mainstream venues too.)
