August 31st at Dumb Records: Prevention, Brute Force, Blushe


Oh you thought we were done with our August show announcements? Not so fast. There is one happening on Saturday, August 31st the very last day of the month. It’s a short and sweet one, but also a special one because it will be a music video shoot for one of Prevention‘s songs. Just like this. The song the music video is for is their song “Another World.” We are supposed to tell you to learn the words, practice singing along, and your dance moves before the show at home. Also on this show is Brute Force from the Southern Illinois / St. Louis area. Opening things up is Blushe.

This show starts at 7:00 pm and admission is $5, you just can’t beat that. Check out a facebook event for the show right here. Also be sure to check out our shows page for a good look at what else we’ve got coming up at Bread Dumb Records in the future!

Tonight at Dumb Records: Rockford, The Telephone Junkies, Sorry Charlie


Good morning everyone and welcome to the weekend!! We have two shows going on both tonight and tomorrow night. Tonight is a solid three band show that you won’t want to miss, and tomorrow night is the second hip hop show we have put on at our new space downtown. Tonight is special because it is going to be the last ever show for local band Rockford! The last time Rockford played was the final final last ever Black Sheep show back in December. This will be their first time performing at our new space and their last show before some of them depart off to college and different cities into the big world. Good luck to all of them. Stream their music one last time on the player below. Also playing this show is Rockford’s long time friends The Telephone Junkies. And opening things up we have the return of another band we have not seen in quite a minute – Sorry Charlie!

All of this starts at 7:00 pm that night and admission is $5. Check out a facebook event for this one right here. Also be sure to check out our shows page to see what else is coming up in the near future at our space.
