This one is coming up quick, but here is something to get excited about in the new year! This Thursday, January 11th Dumb Records will be turning exactly four years old. It’s hard to believe the store has gone on this long being open nearly every day between now and the start of things in January of 2014. To celebrate the store is hosting the second ever “Free Record Day” – that’s right – walk into Dumb Records (located at 1107 South Grand Ave. East) at any point during operating hours and receive a free wrapped record at no cost. The records are pre-wrapped so you don’t know what you are going to get – could be anything new or used, and of any genre!
In addition to free record day, there will also be an in-store show to go along with the anniversary at 7:00 pm. For that we have three acts performing. We are going to do our best at squeezing in the Southtown Livin’ Thing Band inside the record store for the first time and see how it goes! Be sure to bring a helmet for that one. We also have two touring musicians on board. This includes our friend Jared Grabb – solo folk artist from Peoria, Illinois that just recently had a new record come out. Stream some of that on the player embedded below. Jared will be on tour with Brett Conlin who will also be performing.
Dumb Records will be open on Thursday from 9:00 am to 10:00 pm. There might be donuts in the morning too? The show kicks off in the evening at 7:00 pm. Find a facebook event for all of this right here. Also check out our shows page for a look at what else is coming up at Black Sheep / Dumb Records in the new year.
