Sadface Killer: “Domino Line”


Happy Valentines Day from us over at Dumb Records. Today we are bringing you some new emo music – not exactly from right here in Springfield but it is featuring one member that goes to school here at UIS and also volunteers at Dumb Records so it counts as Springfield music by us. That is Sadface Killer‘s newest album Domino Line – 13 tracks which you can find streaming all on the player below. Nice. Head over to the band’s bandcamp page where you can purchase the download of the album.

Sadface Killer played one of the final Black Sheep shows back in December with Park and Earthwitch. They don’t have any Springfield shows currently lined up.

Vintage Love Tour (Kicking Off Now) Today At Dumb Records


Happy Saturday! Today is a big day for us over at the new Dumb Records because it’s our first day being open all throughout the entire day! No, no grand opening yet. Today is the “Vintage Love Tour” organized by Springfield Vintage happening at various locations around town including our own store (or next door to our store at our venue space). Just show up to 418 E Monroe Street today and say “hi”! There are five vendors set up over here selling vintage items, maybe some clothes, some roller skates, some cacti shaped like little hearts. Wow!

The Vintage Love tour is going on from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. We will still have our record store open until 8:00 pm tonight (so we are open 10:00 am – 8:00 pm). Come on by and say hi! More info on the Vintage Love tour and other locations can be found on the facebook event right here.

Tonight at CFP: Decline, Time & Pressure, Redbait, No Cash Value, Final Order


It’s hot outside today. The super bowl is going on. So what better way to spend it in a sweaty basement full of punks at the CFP house? That’s what’s going on tonight somewhere in this city. This show features a few touring acts – on the top of the bill is Chicago “straight edge hardcore” group Decline – whose music you can find streaming on the player below. Another hardcore group from St. Louis – Time & Pressure is coming, a band that has played at Black Sheep before. Another St. Louis band coming up for the show is Redbait. Sounds like we’ve got a packed house! Local groups include No Cash Value – who just played a short set at CFP last week. Last but not least is Final Order from right here in the Capital City.

This show starts at the CFP at 7:00 pm. Admission is five dollars to go to the out of town bands and it’s an all ages shows. If you do not know where the CFP is located, maybe you can inquire on the facebook event. Be sure to also check out our Springfield shows page where we try to keep a list of shows coming up in town that are outside of our own space.

Videos: BIB at Black Sheep (12-22-18)

Screen Shot 2019-02-01 at 4.46.52 PM.png

This is probably the last post from us about any photos or videos from any of the final Black Sheep shows, we promise. But, here is a three-minute long video of a couple of songs taken from Omaha Nebraska based hardcore band BIB‘s set at Black Sheep at one of the legendary(?) final shows which took place on December 22nd of 2018. Find that streaming below. Also Gordon Chang’s camera (ran by someone else other than Gordon Chang) did also happen to catch most of every set from that night! Let’s link all of those here below:

PRYSS (final show)
LIVIN’ THING (final show)
BLUSHE (first show)

Then of course you can go over to our vids/pics page for a list of other photos and videos taken at Black Sheep over the years.
