Good morning! Tonight we’ve got another show happening at our space! There are only three acts performing instead of six – how appropriate for a Tuesday night show!
For this show we have the national touring indie/emo band from Atlanta, Georgia called World’s Greatest Dad. (That’s WGD for short, and you can stream their latest release on the bandcamp player embedded below). Actually you know what, stream both of their latest releases on the player below. Also on this show is Tilt Warning – the fairly new three-piece emo band from here and Central Illinois. Opening things up is indie rock act Kate Laine, who we are excited to see back here at Dumb for the first time since before the pandemic!
All of that starts at 7:00 pm and admission is $10. And yes we WILL once again be checking for proof of vaccines and masks will be required. Find a facebook event for this one right here!
Oh nice. This is a post to let you know we have a new *official* unboxing video for Black Friday Record Store Day, which is coming up in just a few days this Friday. We go through opening up some boxes of Record Store Day exclusives – but don’t show everything.
As per usual, none of these items can be help – they are all first come first serve. You can find a facebook event for Black Friday along with more info right here. We open that day at 8:00 am and are open until 8:00 pm.
Good morning, or afternoon! It’s the Tuesday before Black Friday – and would you believe it, we have a lot of records going out on the shelves that are not just Black Friday Record Store Day records. This is a long list of normal used and new LPs that have hit our shelves in recent days. Again, this list doesn’t even include re-stocks or the large amount of CDs and cassettes we are always getting in (okay, the cassettes coming in did slow down some). Also a nice little reminder that we will be closed for Thanksgiving, open from 8:00am to 8:00pm for Black Friday Record Store Day, and open 10am-7pm on all of the other days!! Okay, here is all what is new!

Hey, there’s a big show going on over here that we have not yet made an official website post here for! That’s right, on Saturday December 11th, Flatfoot 56 is comin’ to town!
Flatfoot 56 – American Scottish / Celtic punk band from Chicago, Illinois. They have played here in town a couple of times before, at least once as far back as a full decade ago at The Black Sheep Cafe. They have been a band since the year 2000 – that’s 20+ years. You can stream their latest album, Black Thorn on the player below. Also on this show once again is Attic Salt, a band from here we all know and love. Opening things up this time around is the Brandon Carnes alternative short-song rock band “Night Night Boy“.
This show is a $10 banger, and starts at 7:00 pm like most of our other shows. Find a facebook event right here. Also check out our shows page for a list of upcoming shows right here. And this part we’re serious about – like our other shows, we will be enforcing masks worn by all attendees and checking for proof of vaccine (either in physical card form or photos of one), or negative COVID test within 72 hours.
We have a show going on tonight here at Dumb Records! Did we even make an official announcement post for this show? Hmmm! Anyways, tonight we have the return of Ohmaha Nebraska hardcore group JOCKO. Jocko has performed here before the pandemic and also at Black Sheep for the last Dumb Fest, Dumb Fest 6. You can check out their newest release streaming on the player below. Opening acts on this show include Blind Equation playing “cyber grind” from Bloomington, Illinois. There is a first ever show for a new Springfield band called “Pucker Up” featuring members of other bands. And last but not least (and maybe going first) is Long Birds, a younger punk group from Champaign, IL.
All of this starts at 7:00 pm tonight and admission is $7. Find a facebook event right here. We will still be requiring masks at shows and checking for proof of vaccine or negative COVID test within 72 hours.
Alright here, real quick! We’re gonna go over a show announcement real quick! This one is happening on Sunday, December 19th so mark your calendars!
Okay, for this show we’ve got a band called “Die” from Chicago! Stream their music on the player embedded below. Didn’t we just recently have a band called Die play here? Yes, but that was “DYE” from Kansas City, apparently a different band. Also on this show of course is heavy hitting hardcore band Prevention. Then another band called SPLIT. Didn’t they recently play here too? No, that show got cancelled and they didn’t get to play here, so now they are. And we’ve got War & Rumor from Jacksonville.
That’s it, that’s the show. This show starts at 7:00pm, admission is $7, and we will be requiring masks and checking for proof of vaccine or negative COVID tests within 72 hours still.
This is just a post to show you all that we have our new *Dumb Record* exclusive shirts for Black Friday Record Store Day ready to go. How exciting. No, these are not for sale. We would not even take any money in advance for these. These are only available for free to the first 50 people in line for Black Friday Record Store Day on Friday, November 26th at 8:00 am!!! No, we’ll never print these again.
Good afternoon and here is an *official* post to let you know we have a couple of additions to a show previously announced for Saturday, November 27thhere at Dumb Records. Certainly this will be a busy weekend being the day after Black Friday Record Store Day.
The lineup previously announced is Superfun Yeah Yeah Rocketship, Nite Frvr, and Trauma Harness all from the St. Louis area, and then “Animals With Human Names” – the hip hop project from here. Now two new added acts include BIG LAUGH (hardcore band from Milwaukee, Wisconsin), who have played here at Dumb Record before the pandemic, and also some other new band that we don’t even know the name of from Springfield and Central Illinois. This new band features Drew Kodrich on something. Stream some of Big Laugh’s music on the player below.
Find a facebook for this show right here. Start time is still 7:00 pm and the admission cost was $6, so who knows maybe it’s $7 now. Vaccine cards and masks required upon entry.

Whoops! This is something that happens every year – and understandably so with hundreds of different releases being pressed for Record Store Day – there are always a number of releases that don’t quite make it in time and get pushed back. From the official Record Store Day facebook page:
Not sure if you’ve heard the news, but things are a little crazy in the world of supply and demand out there. And even though every Record Store Day, RSD Drop and RSD Black Friday has changes to the List in the weeks between when it’s launched and when the titles hit the stores, production issues, customs issues, shipping issues, rights issues, and some pretty comical situations we can’t really get into here have definitely hit this RSD Black Friday list.
We ordered every single release on “the list” for Black Friday Record Store Day this year, so everything on the list above should hopefully be coming to our store on December 10th. **Even through we ordered everything, not all of these titles are guaranteed to us, and it is normal for a number of releases to get allocated and less copies show up than what we order. We also can not put any holds on any of these items, even for the later date.
Black Friday Record Store Day is happening this year on Friday, November 26th. Our store opens at 8:00 am and we will be having sales, live music, exclusive shirt giveaways, and more. Checkout a facebook event for this one right here.
