April 20th at The Radon Lounge: David Dondero, Nectar, Bottom Bracket, Night Night Boy


What’s going on this weekend coming up around town? Well, we don’t have anything lined up at Bread Stretchers Friday or Saturday (we do have a show Sunday), but there is this really cool show happening at The Radon Lounge on Saturday, April 20th that you should probably know about! This is actually The Radon’s last show for the season! They’ll be back in the fall after this. For this show they’ve got some big NPR featured guy, David Dondero at the top of the bill. Where’s this guy from, Chicago? Stream some of his music on the player below. Radon has got a solid group of local acts this time around as well. This includes Nectar from Champaign and very familiar to Springfield – who just released their album “Knocking at the Door” on LP which we have copies of at Dumb. Bottom Bracket are playing, great. Night Night Boy are playing as well – the second show for the new Springfield supergroup lineup featuring members of Park, Looming, and Soap Scum!

This show starts at 7:00 pm and admission is $5. Check out a facebook event for the show here. We told Jeff that we’d be doing something as Dumb Records but we are not completely sure what. We think our old man mascot is going to be handing out old 45s to show goers from his trousers, we’ll see. Check out our Springfield shows page for other non-Bread Stretchers shows here.

May 1st at Bread Stretchers: Cell, CPU Rave, Grave Switcher, Prevention


Today we are excited to announce the first show at Bread Stretchers featuring some bands from outside of the country! (Or at least since Bread Stretchers re-opened). They are two groups from Canada. One is called “CELL” and you can find their music streaming on the player below. Hardcore from Montreal, Quebec? Then on tour with them and also from Montreal is “CPU Rave“. Oh, and by the way this show is happening on Wednesday, May 1st. Both of those bands play hardcore punk music. Good thing we have Springfield hardcore punk music band Grave Switcher also on board for this show! And what’s this? Opening things up we have a brand new band called “Prevention” featuring members of No Cash Value, Final Order, and Grave Switcher?

This starts at 7:00 pm on May 1st. In case you didn’t know, Bread Stretchers shows start on the DOT. Admission is just five bucks. Find 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 Bread Stretchers in the near future.
