hiphopshowtest.jpg

This one may be a pretty last minute announcement from our end, but we’ve got a pretty stacked lineup for the next hip hop show happening at our space on Saturday, August 10th. There are six acts performing from the area. At the top of the bill is Meezy Killafield, who has been making a splash as a rapper from our area recently. He released an album – “The Killafield Chronicles” within this past year. Also on this show is DreTheGuy aka “DeAndre”, another hip hop artist who has performed at The Radon Lounge and also recently Rock N’ Roll Hardee’s. He just dropped an album called “Lapis Effect” just a few weeks ago. Then we got 4usten… what’s up with the “A” in this guy’s name being a “4”? Come to the show and find out. For some of his set he will be joined by Brayden Schmohe. Pictured on the flier and also playing from Decatur is the rap duo “WeBackSoon Music Group“. You can also find them streaming on the player below. Also is more of an R&B act called “Torch_Nation“, familiar to a number of the Dumb Records and Black Sheep open mics. Great to finally get him on a show! Opening things up is A Da Real, another young up and coming artist we are pretty sure from Springfield High School. Nice.

For this show we are saying doors are at 7:00 pm and we are starting things at 7:30 pm. Admission is $5. Check out a facebook event for this one right here. Also be sure to check out our shows page for a good list at what else is coming up at Dumb Bread in the near future.

67203559_2881276898565965_4191991907435413504_n

We have two shows these next couple of nights going on at our space!! Don’t miss ’em! Tonight, for this show we have the band “Crafter” coming all the way from Massachusetts. Stream their music on the player below. Final Order from right here in Springfield will also be playing this show. ALSO on this show is a band called Soul Craft from St. Louis. Soul Craft features members of old Champaign/Urbana hardcore band Commodity that were around in the late 2000’s / early 2010’s that none of you probably remember. Opening things up is the new Springfield hardcore band everyone has been talking about, “Black Box.”

This one starts at 7:00 pm and only costs $5. You just can’t beat that. Check out a facebook event for this one right here. Also be sure to check out our Bread Sheep shows page to see what else is coming up at our spot this summer right here.

September 27th at The Radon Lounge, Homeless Gospel Choir, Mikey Erg, Jon Snodgrass, Looming

Well look-ee here, what do have here. It looks like Springfield basement venue The Radon Lounge have announced the first show of the season for them on Friday, September 27th and it’s a big one. There’s a three-act touring package on this show, and it’s a big deal. On the top is “Homeless Gospel Choir.” That is a touring folk-punk act of some sort from Pittsburg, Pennsylvania. Right smack dab in the middle of that package is none other than Mickey Erg himself. Mickey Erg is a punk rock drummer who has played for a number of groups including The Ergs, and has just released his second solo album which is streaming on the player below. Then there is some third touring guy, Jon Snodgrass, who comes from St. Joseph, Missouri and also played in a bunch of other bands or something. Opening up this show is another rare performance for big time indie rock / punk band that we all know and love, Looming.

This show starts on that day at 7:00 pm, and admission is $12. Find a facebook event for the show right here. We can’t tell you where the Radon Lounge is, but you can go over to their website to further investigate and they might send you on a scavenger hunt around the city to find their little concert dungeon. Check out our Springfield shows page right here.

New Band Pages: Night Night Boy

We finally just got a page together for Springfield powerpop supergroup (is it okay that we call this one a supergroup, please?), Night Night Boy. Night Night Boy started as a project in Pennsylvania by Brandon Carnes during his time out East and now here it is as a full blown band in Springfield. Check out that new page, right here. And see Night Night Boy live in concert next at our space on Tuesday, August 20th along with Lowfaith and others.

We currently have 45 current band pages up and rolling on our site – yes, there are a few bands playing shows we still have to make pages for and there are some pages on here for inactive bands that we need to update! If you play in a Springfield band or are a solo musician get in touch with us at dumbrecs@gmail.com and we will work with you to get something set up!

Today we are happy to welcome on guest and musician Dexter Anodyne, who will be having an album release show at Dumb Records at midnight tonight!

(Midnight) Tonight at Dumb Records: Dexter CD Release, Downhome Music Festival This Weekend

downhomeaftershow4

The weekend is here and we are trying some new things! There are a lot of downtown festivals to keep up with anymore, but this weekend is the big Downhome Music Festival that happens around this time every year. We are actually involved with the festival this year with two official aftershows happening tonight and tomorrow night at our space, both at midnight!

Tonight’s midnight aftershow is also the CD release for local solo artist “Dexter.” We are very excited for Dexter’s new album Weeping Venus. You can check out one track off of that album “The River” right here. The CD is being released by a brand new local lable called Signal Element Records. Also playing this show is Derrick Streibig from the band We Are Warm, and also Jeff Williams of NIL8. That starts over at our space at midnight tonight, admission is $3. We are requesting no outside drinks at this show. Find a facebook event for that tonight right here.

Of course in addition to just what we’ve got going on tonight, we have another midnight after party going on at our space tomorrow as a CD release show for Master Bastard, which you can find more info about right here. Music is also going on downtown all weekend as part of Downhome Music Festival – we will post the photo of the schedule for the main festival below. Tickets for both days are $6 at the gate, and the main stages are located at 7th street downtown. Find a facebook event for Downhome Music Festival right here.
