Lincoln’s Legends: “Why Is Everyone Flipping Out Over Dumb Pinball?”

Thank you to our friends once again at Lincoln’s Legends for doing a quick piece on our big Downtown Pinball Tournament and how it came about. The article called “Flipping Out Over Dumb Pinball” has a nice little write-up on the idea of the tournament, and a 18 minute or so long interview or phone conversation where we are kind of goofing off. You can check that all out on the Lincoln’s Legends site right here. From the article:

The record store is open until 7 pm and Brian mentioned that many business owners will stop on thier way home to check out the store as well as their “competition”. Many even choose to visit during their lunch breaks. The bracket is massive and takes up most of the left wall across from the counter. This close proximity almost forces engagement.

The final round of our big pinball tournament is TODAY. This means we expect a lot of last minute scores to be rolling in today, and we will also likely post a big update including an updated and revised tournament bracket tomorrow to clearly map out the remaining rounds.

Demons On Wheels: “Souvenirs”

Today we bring you a brand new album from Springfield recording project Demons on Wheels. Demons on Wheels is one of a handful of projects put together by Mark Schwartz as mastermind and multi-instrumentalist, as featured on last month’s cover of Activator Magazine. This new album is called Souvenirs and you can find it streaming on the player below. You can also listen to and purchase more of Mark’s music over on the Demons on Wheels bandcamp page.

Demons on Wheels also released another album, Still Left Standing at the beginning of this year. We’ve also added this one to our Springfield album archive page, bringing us to a total of 44 local releases we have kept track of so far this year.
