Holy smokes as we are still scrambling to get our shop and everything back to normal after such a crazy Record Store Day weekend, we just want to make sure we get in a post to say THANK YOU to all who stopped by our store at any point! We can hardly believe it but we more than doubled our best day ever in the store’s history. You can see our long line pictured above right before we opened our doors Saturday at 8:00 am (there were some waiting as early as before 6:00 am)! Extra thank you to radio stations WYMG and WQNA for broadcasting live and also Foamed Up for providing coffee! We are back to our regular hours of 10:00 am to 8:00 pm here at 418 E Monroe Street now (with another show next door tonight). Check out a couple of other photos of Saturday below.
Wow, here we are scrambling to get back on track with things after a very successful Record Store Day weekend and there is another show going on tonight at Bread Stretchers right next to us!! Great, just great! Tonight we have touring acoustic act “I Was My Biggest Mistake” coming from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Check out some of their music playing on the player below. This will be joined by a solid group of local musicians, including solo project Flunkie! Jessica Knight of the band Looming will be performing as well… some sort of karaoke set we hear? What’s all that about? Looks like opening things up (or maybe they are going to go last) we have the second show ever from a brand new Springfield band called Blushe!
This show starts at 7:00 pm and in case you haven’t heard, Bread Stretchers shows start right on time on the DOT! Admission is $5. Check out a facebook event for this one right here. Also be sure to check out our Bread Stretchers shows page for a look at what else is coming up over there.
