Today at Dumb Records: Record Store Day 2020 Drop #3

Here we are once again! Seems like there are Record Store Days happening once every month anymore, and October’s big Record Store Day “drop date” is happening today on this cold Saturday. This is actually the biggest of the three drop dates in terms of what we ordered for the store, and we have about 40 exclusive titles hitting the shelves today. We posted photos of most of this stuff right here on our facebook page.

Our store opens today at 10:00 am and is open until 7:00 pm. The arcade is open to the public during those same times, either with $5 admission or with purchase of $10 or more in the store. We are limiting the number of people in our space to 10 total, and masks are required. Recycled Records is also participating in getting the Record Store Day exclusive releases, and of course we encourage the support of Elf Shelf Books & Music downtown as well!

The next Record Store Day after this one is going to be Black Friday Record Store Day on November 27th, which we are expecting even more exclusive releases for.

Dumb Records October Holiday Hours

We are once again trying something really stupid that we might regret later on. Now introducing: Dumb Records holiday hours! Where we don’t cut back any hours – we add some… for fun! And for Halloween! Our store is usually open every day from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm. For these select days we are adding more hours:

October 26th (the night of the 25th) we will be open from midnight to 3:00 am.

• October 28th we will be open until 10:00 pm along with a handful of other shops downtown!

• October 31st (halloween) we will be open until 10:00 pm! We might even have candy!

Then for all of these extended hours, we are opening up our arcade to everybody (no fee to enter). However, our limit of 5 people to the arcade at a time does apply, and masks are still required.

Kid Ziggy: “Upside Down” (Music Video)

Today we bring you a brand new music video from local artist Kid Ziggy, who is a part of the “Zippir Collective” hip hop collective. This song is in more of the pop direction and is called “Upside Down” – you can check out the song and video streaming on the player below. The song features Danny J, and was produced by RJC. The music video was shot by Elijah Settles.

It looks like the Zippir Collective also launched a brand new website at some point recently ( and the collective will also be dropping a new EP called Zippir Vol. 1 later this upcoming week on October 23rd. We will be reporting back as soon as that EP is up for streaming.

Check out our vids/pics page for more music videos shot over the years.

We are just along for this ride, and it hasn’t ben too bad.

Black Friday Record Store Day is happening this year on Friday, November 27th. The official list of exclusive releases has already been released on the Record Store Day website. Our order was even already due! We ordered it ALL this time!! The number of exclusive releases comes to 133 different releases this time, and we ordered at least one copy of everything. Go check out the Record Store Day website for more that full list as well as info on each release.

We’ll be posting more info on our Black Friday Record Store Day later on, but we will go ahead and say that we ordered all of these exclusive releases and our store will be open that day from 8:00 am to 7:00 pm.
