Look at this whopper of a show we have to tell you about today. It’s going to be a good one, happening later this month on Friday, June 28th. This is going to be the LP release (yes, a vinyl record) of local group Local Drags who have not performed in Springfield very often if even at all. It’s good though – someone is pressing their album on to wax so it’s gotta be good. Stream it again on that player below. This show is also going to be good because it’s got heavy hitters Bottom Bracket on board. And we’ve also got a rare Attic Salt performance – another band who has yet to play in the new space. Opening things up is the first show of a new Taylorville duo going by the name “Farm Shack”! We’re going to find out what that is all about.
This show starts at 7:00 pm and admission is $5. Check out a facebook event for this one right here. Also be sure to check out our Bread Stretch Record Sheep’s shows page for a look at what is coming up in this space next door to us that we don’t have anything to do with.
It’s Friday so we’ve got another episode of The Dumb Records Radio Show lined up! Wow! We’ve got this nice new cool graphic for our recently re-named radio program (formerly The Black Sheep radio show). Wow thanks to local graphics guy Brian Galecki for designing this logo for us, thanks Brian, your check is coming in the mail later on. Today on our radio program we have Celeste Durham coming in, the one who is responsible for organizing the Creative Earth Art Show happening at our space tomorrow from 5:00 to 9:00 pm. We’ll be talking to Celeste as well as playing plenty of local music and bands that are coming to town.
The Dumb Records Radio Show airs today and every Friday from 4:00 to 6:00 pm on 88.3 WQNA fm. You can check it out online at that same time on wqnaradio.org.
Wow what an incredible night last night was. We are blown away that something like that was able to happen in Springfield – thanks to The Levitt AMP Grant and other donations to the cause, plus an amazing turnout, and cooperating weather. An all around fantastic time, and it seemed like The Skatalites really enjoyed being here too.
Tonight and tomorrow the festivities continue in downtown Springfield with The Legacy Of Giving Music Festival happening around the Old State Capitol building on five different stages! We’ve posted the schedule above again for you all to see. Things kick off later this afternoon at 5:00 pm on stages at 5th and Washington Streets and go all the way until midnight. Then tomorrow things start as early as noon and also go on all night. Check out the LoG Fest website for more info and everything they do right here.
Don’t forget that we will be hosting an official aftershow at Dumb Records as part of the Creative Earth Art Show happening Saturday (tomorrow) from 5:00 to 9:00 pm. LoG Fest band Fuzzlove is playing that one.
