Today on The Dumb Records Radio Show: Tim Smith (Abe Fest)


We are getting back into the swing of things with having some solid guests coming up on our weekly radio show on 88.3 FM WQNA! This week is going to kick off a long run of some great scheduled guests, with the guest being Tim Smith: organizer behind the new downtown music festival “Abe Fest” which is happening in just two weeks on July 19th and 20th. We’ll be talking with Tim on what that festival is all about, what to expect, as well as playing music from some of the bands playing such as The Smithereens, The BoDeans, and Spoonbenders! Plus we’ll be playing other music by local artists and from shows coming up at our space and around town.

The Dumb Records Radio Show is on today from 4:00 to 6:00 pm on 88.3 WQNA FM, and also on that same time online at We are going to be working to get some of our more recent episodes recorded here very soon, hopefully starting with this one today!

Tonight at Bread Sheep: Looming, Great Expectations, Seaholm, Blue Parks


Alright, now that the 4th of July is done and over with, the weekend is here and we have two really big shows lined up tonight and tomorrow next door at Bread Sheep! Tonight!: a brand new lineup full band version of Looming is taking the stage for the first time in a while. Wow! There are two touring acts from Michigan on this show. One of them is Great Expectations from Detroit, playing some emo type music that you can find on the player below. They will be on tour with another band called Seaholm from Ann Arbor. Opening this show up is a slow performance by Blue Parks, who may be going by the performance name of Body Forth.

This show starts at 7:00 pm and admission is going to be a sliding scale of $5-10. You can check out a facebook event for this one right here. Also be sure to check out our Bread Stretchers shows page for a good look at what else is coming up at the show space next to us.
