Happy Monday everyone and welcome back to another week. The Grammys happened a couple of nights ago we are pretty sure. We are not sure who won, but we do know that today we are bringing you a new-ish music video from local hip hop artist “Wasted Talent” for the song “Sheria Za Pesa” which features other local act Mvrty1300. The video was shot and directed here in town by Twenty One Seven Studios. You can check it out on the player embedded below.

Get ready for the second show we have lined up for this weekend happening tonight!! Tonight is another hip hop show at our space. This one is a release show of sorts for local hip hop artist Satisfy, who just recently dropped his debut full length album entitled Take A Deep Dive Into What I Go Through on multiple streaming platforms. This one is being organized by DB Entertainment. Also on this show is 36 N Brimstone, an artist from Carlinville, Illinois. We also have Meezy Killafield on board once again! Meezy performed at our last hip hop show last month. The one other act lined up is C. Smith right now. There will also be more!
This show starts at 7:00 pm. Tickets are $7 at the door unless you already purchased a ticket in advance. You can check out the facebook event right here. Be sure to also check out our shows page for what else we have lined up here in 2020.
Somehow we missed these two new releases from local ambient solo artist Tony Colantino that came out at some point last month. Tony put up two five-track releases, one called Companion, and the other called The Space Drone last month on his bandcamp page. You can find those both streaming on separate players embedded below. Head over to Tony’s bandcamp page to purchase the download of either release.
Tony also released his debut full length album, Extradimensional earlier last year. We are now adding all of these on to 2019 on our Springfield album archive page.
It’s the weekend everybody, and we’ve got a couple of shows lined up for you tonight and tomorrow night! The show tonight features Nectar from Champaign, who are no strangers to the Springfield rock scene. Stream their latest album on the player below. The Telephone Junkies will be performing for us as well. And if that is not enough for you, Sadface Killer from here and Peoria will be taking the stage before them. Opening things up is the folky local duo, Idle Oath. They are really good.
All of that starts tonight at 7:00 pm and admission is $7. You can find a facebook event for this show right here. Also be sure to check out our shows page for a good look at what else we have lined up in the year 2020, the year of the future.
Happy snowy Thursday everyone, today we are bringing you yet some more new local music that has recently come out in this year 2020, the year of our future.

We are also adding this one to our Springfield album archive page, bringing us to three releases so far this year for 2020! It’s gonna be a great year.
Happy Wednesday, everyone. We still can’t get over how great our venue space looks right now and how great our last show this past Sunday was. Today we bring you a video that was taken of Chicago-based band Slow Mass, of them performing one of their songs, “Gray Havens.” You can find that video on the player below.
Also check out our vids/pics page for a list of videos taken at our downtown space and plenty from the Black Sheep years.
We haven’t announced this show yet? Wow, we get to get more on top of things. This one is happening later on in March – Tuesday, March 10th. It’s gonna be a stinger of a gig. This one is going to be a tour kickoff of sorts for the bands Prevention and their Tennessee-based friends, Gumm who have played here a couple of times before. Nice. Stream some of Gumm’s music on the player below. You already know what Prevention sounds like. Also on this show is “Direct Measure” who used to be called… Brute Force. They have played here a bunch too, but you wouldn’t know it looking at the flier because they changed their name. Also on this show is the mighty Bull Cult from Galesburg, playing here for the second time ever. Black Box from Springfield is going to be opening things up with their wild & crazy hardcore music. Enjoy!
All of that is at 7:00 pm and admission is $7! Hopefully the weather will be warmer by then. Check out a facebook event for this one right here. Also be sure to check out our shows page for a good look at what else is coming up at Dumb Dumb’s!
