October 9th at Dumb Records: Squarecrow, Attic Salt, Local Drags


Sick! Here we are to tell you about a show going on at our space on Wednesday, October 9th. Isn’t that wild, we are already diving into October show announcements. Anyways, we have a band coming from California (the first from California to play our new downtown spot?) called Squarecrow. You can check ’em out on the player streaming below. Also two solid local acts are on this show, it’s gonna be good. Attic Salt is on this show, they are good. And guess what else, Starter Jackets are also on this show, they are also pretty good.

All of this happens that Wednesday night in October at 7:00 pm and admission is $5. You can check out that flier for some 2019 fall fashion tips to get your outfits ready.

Levi Tucker: “The Shoestring EP”


Today we bring you some brand new singer songwriter local music coming outta Jacksonville, Illinois nearby. This is by solo musician Levi Tucker and Levi has released four songs as a release under the name The Shoestring EP. From Levi’s bandcamp page:

As the name implies, this short collection of songs was recorded in a simple, humble way in simple, humble places. Each song was recorded on a single microphone, in one continuous take in an attempt to capture the truest version possible. The result of this is four songs that are the most honest and poignant retelling of the emotions from which they were created.
Nice. You can find those songs streaming on the player embedded below, or also head on over to his bandcamp page where you can purchase the download of the EP.


We are not sure of any shows Levi has lined up at the moment. We are adding this one to our Springfield album archive page, which brings us to 40 releases we’ve had featured so far this year and 466 as a grand total.

Tonight at Dumb Records: Prevention, Brute Force, Blushe


Tonight! The weather is very nice out and we are having a party! Well, kind of just a normal show, 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 today 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!
