April 14th at Dumb Records: Big Losers, The Complaint Line, Idle Oath, Marble Teeth


Let’s boogie. On Tuesday, April 14th we are having another gig. This one Pizza Ranch Jack set up and he accidentally misspelled every single band name on the flier. That’s right. Who do we have? Big Loser is at the top of the bill, they are from Austin Texas and have played here a number of times before. They played before at Black Sheep under a different name… something like “Free Kittens and Bread.” Now they are just “Big Loser” and we are “Dumb Records.” For local bands on this show we have The Complaint Line, actually playing for the first time inside of our new space! Also on the bill is Idle Oath (that one is definitely misspelled). We’re actually not sure who’s gonna end up opening this one up, but Marble Teeth from Decatur is playing as well.

This is a 7:00 pm, $7 show and don’t you forget it! 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 is coming up at our space this spring.

Forest Saints: “Backyard Twilight Symphony”


Springfield recording project “Forest Saints” is BACK with a massive twenty-track album! The album is entitled Backyard Twilight Symphony and you can stream it on the player below. Also head on over to the Forest Saints bandcamp page where you can purchase the download of the album. The psychedelic/experimental recording project of Mark Schwartz (also of End Times Trio, Demons on Wheels, and Tin Ghost) now has a whopping ELEVEN albums released on bandcamp, with the previous release being the nearly two-hour long The Book of Descents & Ascensions released last year.

There are no live shows for Forest Saints lined up. We are adding this one to our Springfield album archive page, bringing us to eight releases that we have had listed so far this year.
