[April 06, 2013]  ARMINGTON -- Saturday night, head on over to The Outpost, 203 E. Third St. in Armington. Kicking off the show will be Sundown taking the stage at 8 p.m., with the Black Lillies hitting the stage at 10 p.m.

Have you heard of The Outpost in Armington? Or better yet, have you heard of Armington? The small town located one mile from the Logan County and Tazewell County border is home to The Outpost. What once was an old Legion hall has been transformed by owner and Armington native Rick Tackett. Since December of 2011, it has been a place for music and now good food, with the grill fired up for lunch and dinner service.

On Saturday, The Outpost will once again delight with the caliber of entertainment that you might expect only in the larger cities, or even Nashville. The Black Lillies hail from eastern Tennessee and are making quite a splash in Nashville, the charts and soon central Illinois. This independent band has been invited to play the Grand Ole Opry more than a dozen times, which is a record for independent acts, and now has a single at No. 21 on Billboard's Heatseekers Chart. Their sound ranges from folk rock to the honky-tonk sounds of classic country.

For tickets and more information, you can reach The Outpost at 309-392-3258 or find them on Facebook. To get a taste of what the Black Lillies will bring, you can get a sneak peek on their website,
