November 23rd: Black Friday Record Store Day at Dumb Records


Hey! Did you know that one week from tomorrow is one of the biggest days of the year for us at Southtown Record Store Dumb Records? That’s because it is Black Friday Record Store Day, which happens every year (similar to Record Store Day in April). This year that is taking place the day after Thanksgiving on Friday, November 23rd. The store has a good number of exclusive releases coming in as usual, but will also be doing the biggest sale we have ever held – 50% off the entire store (new and used). Wow! In addition to all of that there will be a show in the store at 7:00 pm, which is free!

Let’s take a look at the acts performing for the in-store show at 7:00 pm. The one full band we have on the bill is a newer Springfield project and from our understanding a heavier band called “Foot“. You can stream some Foot on the player below. Also performing is Kenyon DeShasier. Kenyon makes a lot of music, you should check out his Youtube page. Before that we have excellent musician Matt LaMarca. And opening things up looks like we have a solo musician from Winchester, IL who recently put out an album that we carry in our store on vinyl – Stuart Smith.

The store is open from 8:00 am to 10:00 pm for Black Friday (wow). It’s probably safe to say that we’ll have coffee and donuts for all of you early birds. Check out a facebook event for Black Friday at Dumb Records here. The 50% sale applies to everything except those exclusive releases. Do you want that list of exclusives? Here you go:
