An ex-Professional American and his mates join up with Springfield’s tissue-pushers at Randy Bacon’s place.
The February 23 Gallery Sounds event at Randy Bacon’s studio/music venue is one with particularly relevant local ties. The headliner is Jets Under Fire, featuring Jason Poe, formerly of The Professional Americans, whose music so influenced local band The Whitest Light (formerly happyendings) that they re-named their band after one of his more popular songs. The opening act is Springfield outfit Starrfadu, which until SSLYBY landed one of its songs on a MasterCard commercial held the title of “Local Band With Song In Most Impressive TV Ad”, with its single “Let It Out” backing a still-in-circulation Kleenex spot. The show is a bargain at only $7, so enjoy the all-ages fun.
