Are you ready for all of the new local music that’s about to be coming out in the year 2020?! We haven’t even posted the results from our best of 2019 series yet! Local rapper Deezy Da Paperboy looks like is taking on an ambitious task of releasing a new song and video every single week of this year every Friday starting today with this song and video entitled “The Race.” You can check that out on the player embedded below. The video was shot and edited by Jayy Wills Entertainment.
We’ve included this one in our long list of music videos from over the years by local artists on our vids/pics page. Deezy Da Paperboy just recently performed at our space a week or so ago as part of a recent benefit for Springfield Community Broadcasters.
Time for us to catch up on all of our show announcements for this year! This one is coming up on Monday, January 13th at our space! It features hardcore/metal group from Lansing, Michigan called “Dead Hour Noise.” Stream one track from their upcoming album on the player below. For this show we get local hardcore band Final Order at the top of the bill closing out the night. The one other out of town band is Portals, the Central Illinois metal/deathcore group. And ahhhh, opening up we have the second gig ever for the new solo black metal project from here that everyone has been talking about Gargantuan.
All of that starts at 7:00 pm and admission is $7. Check out a facebook event for that show right here. Also be sure to check out our shows page for a good look at what else is coming up at Dumb Records in the year 2020 of the future.
We are saddened to learn of the passing of one of our former volunteers at Dumb Records, Noah Guerrettaz (1999-2019) towards the end of this past year from health complications. Noah had been a dedicated volunteer in our store at our older location from 2015 through 2018 at the time of our move downtown. Noah was also a show attendee, and was a musician himself although he kept all of his recorded music mostly to himself and a few of those close to him. Some of Noah’s family lived in Flora, Illinois where a funeral mass was held at the end of November. His obituary can be found right here.
Noah was also working at Dumb Records the night we took in our store cat, Pepperoni Pizza, who wandered into a show at Black Sheep as we were setting up on September 10th, 2018.
