Tonight at Dumb Records: Asa Dawson, The Wining Stretch, Mario Cannamela, Blue Parks


What’s up we have a show going on tonight! We are excited for this one, it’s a nice and sweet mostly acoustic, mostly solo show. At the top of the bill is Asa Dawson, who used to play in alternative / pop punk band The Junior Varsity, which was active for much of the 00’s and put out a few albums on Victory Records! This will surely be a treat. Another band coming back for this show we haven’t seen since the earlier days of Black Sheep is “The Winning Stretch” which we have been told are performing as a three piece full band. We’ve also got a solo set by Mario Cannamela of Bottom Bracket and countless other bands. Opening things up is a set by Blue (Blu?) Parks. Blu’s the only one of those who has a bandcamp player! You can find their music streaming on the player below.

That all starts tonight at 7:00 pm and admission is just $5. Check out a facebook event for the show tonight right here. Also don’t be a dummy and check out our shows page for a good look at what is coming up at our space in the near future.
