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!
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.
Happy Tuesday, we are a record store! And like any other week, we are continuing to plop out new and used LPs, 7″s, 12″ singles, cassettes, and CDs out onto the shelves. We have a number of new turntable in too for any of you looking into getting into vinyl as we approach this long cold winter. Our store is open every day from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm. Check us out sometime. And of course, this Saturday is going to be a big one with the third Record Store “Drop Date” happening. On that day we will be opening one hour earlier at 10:00 am. There will be a stack of exclusive releases hitting the shelves, and maybe some extra new and used LPs going out. Other than that, here is what’s new for this week:

Today we bring you a brand new single from a mysterious “Jayy Alejandro” (who we are pretty sure is local artist and videographer Jayy Wills). That new single is called “Alaska” and you can check it out on the player embedded below.
This is the only song streaming on the newly created Soundcloud page for Jayy Alejandro. Could there be more music on the way??
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 (Zippircollective.com) 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.
Are you ready to hear about another Record Store Day that’s coming up? We know what you are thinking, “Are they doing Record Store Day every month now? or every weekend?” Yes, it does seem that way since normal Record Store Day this past year got split into three dates, and we still have the third one coming up on Saturday, October 24th. 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.
Wow, we are already halfway through October. It will be November before you know it, and we will all be stuck inside for the rest of the winter. This is a little bit of a late post to let you know that we have new copies of Activator Magazine (October 2020 edition) available for free inside our store.
This one features Peoria-based artist (and also full band) Ashley Bean on the cover. It’s jam-packed with other stuff too. There are plenty of local and non-local album write-ups and reviews, also an interview with another Peoria-based band Terribly Happy, Champaign-based artist Emily Blue, another Peoria band called Still Shine, hip hop artist “KP”, Failed Poem Records, a photospread of 217 Burlesque & Curiosities Troupe, and more! Wow!
Pick up a copy of Activator Magazine for free at Dumb Records or other various locations around Central Illinois. Also consider supporting Activator Magazine by donating to their Patreon page!
Time for us to do a little bit of catching up on some local music that’s been coming out lately. Earlier this month or late last month a new single dropped from local hip hop artist “Fly Rich.” That song is called “Damn!” and you can find it streaming on the youtube player embedded below. This one was engineered by Shawn “Push” Freligh.
