September 21st at Dumb Records: Sonny & Kade, Zach Goriszewski, Amy Quin & The Manic Depressives, Emily Hough, Zach Karraker


Look at this whopper of a show coming up in two weeks we have. On Saturday, September 21st. A little last minute 5-act pretty much all solo and mostly local show at our space, why not. Let’s take a look at what we got. At the top is actually a rap project called “Sonny & Kade” which we do not know much about. We do know there is music for right here. Next down the bill is Zach Goriszewski, former singer for the band Kickstart right here in town. In the middle is “Amy Quin & The Manic Depressives” from St. Louis. There is actually music for that one streaming on the player below, don’t pay attention to the name being “Dead Pilgrim” on that. Before that we have Emily Hough, the up and coming teen from Petersburg, Illinois that was actually a contestant on NBC’s “The Voice”! Amazing! Opening things up is yet another Zach! Zach Karraker playing some solo acoustic music.

All of that starts at 7:00 pm and it’s five acts for $5, you just can’t beat that. Check out a facebook event for the show right here. Also check out our shows page for a good look at what else is coming up at our space in the near future.

Tonight at Dumb Records: Blushe, Prowess, “So Which Band Is Your Boyfriend In?” Documentary Screening


Tonight we have the first movie / documentary screening we are attempting to have in our new space! And we’ve got it paired up with two bands performing, for an all around well rounded event! Our friends at Activator Magazine approached us about the possibility of us doing a showing of a new documentary from the UK exploring gender in the DIY scene called “What Band Is Your Boyfriend In?“. Here is a description from the facebook page:

This documentary features the views of a range of women/gender-fluid individuals from all walks of life within the UK music scene. It looks at how and why people get involved in music, the positive and the not-so-positive experiences, and the possible ways we can change things.

The gender divide exists – there’s no doubt about it. And recently there have been an increasing number of press articles on the issue, but they only scratch the surface. So, Which Band is Your Boyfriend in? provides an in-depth account of the situation.

From the outset it was my intention to create a film which could have an impact on the awareness of equality issues in the UK music scene. I hope that this project will inspire young people to pick up an instrument, learn to record music or just get out there to see live bands perform.

Check out the trailer for the documentary on the player below. Total run time is close to an hour and a half. We also have two bands on the bill – if we had to guess how we will have it set up, we will likely have the bands go first and then the movie screening directly after. Bands performing include the incredibly talented alternative / punk group Blushe, and then the male-fronted hardcore band Prowess.

This one starts at 7:00 pm and admission is $5. Sounds like we are doing bands first and then the movie showing. Check out a facebook event for this one right here. Also be sure to check out our shows page for a good look at what else we’ve got coming up.
