Here is a thing coming up next weekend downtown that we feel important tom mention here on our site! SonnyD Artistry is teaming up with Anvil & Forge and DIM Art House and us(?) to present “Artists In Harmony” – a weekend long music and art event at Anvil & Forge on Friday and Saturday August 27th & 28th! Taken from the facebook event:
There’s nothing like a cool collaboration to bring about harmony! SonnyD Presents The POP! Life & DIM Art House are teaming up for “Artists In Harmony” at Anvil & Forge Brewing. This two night themed showcase will feature musically inspired original artwork, as well as live performances from 20 local acts on multiple stages. The premise being to exhibit the undeniable coalition between music & visual arts. You won’t want to miss the one of a kind vinyl Dumb Records wall & all of the other surprises we have in store. So, pop on out to Anvil for this fun music/art mashup & celebrate our first big show of the year! Open call artists & musicians may contact Sonya Sanders Dilley or Jeff Curtis Williams for all participation info & keep an eye on this event page for updates as they develop.
Then the schedule is so jam-packed with performers, it is too many for us to list off! We’ll just go ahead and post the schedule here, also taken from the facebook event:
Wowza! Also yes, this event does occur at the same time as our free Laura Jane Grace show in our alleyway. That is okay though – our show will likely start at 7:00 pm on Saturday and get over around 9:30 pm, so the Artists In Harmony event will still be going on and can act as the aftershow to our event (especially for those who are looking to go to a bar downtown).
Oh shoot – today is open streets day here downtown! Who’d of thought! It’s actually going on right now! That’s right – from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm you can do whatever you want in the streets here downtown. You can do backflips, or skateboard in the streets. This year the area that is blocked off is different than previous years. Monroe Street in front of our store is NOT blocked off, instead the area more behind us – between 4th and 5th streets and between Capitol and Edwards is. That is pretty much around the entire “Y-Block” where the Levitt AMP Concert Series was held.
…And here’s another show announcement! Sorry! This one is happening on Saturday, September 18th at our space around one month from now. At Dumb Records – “the name to remember for performance and value”! For this show we have “Grey Slush” – Grey Slush is an indie rock group from Peoria Illinois! You can stream their debut EP on the player embedded below. For this show we also have the return of The Telephone Junkies! Telephone Junkies put out an album last year and it’s great. Looks like opening things up we have the Lincoln, Illinois-based shoegaze project Hushpad.
This show will start at 7:00 pm and admission is $7. Check out a facebook event for this one right here (be careful, we just made it so it’s hot and fresh out of the oven). Also check our shows page on our site for a list of all three shows we have lined up right now.
And, as things continue to be uncertain with rising cases of COVID-19 in our area – it is safe to say that we will be checking for proof of vaccines at this show and requiring masks as well.
Here we go… we are announcing another show to be happening inside our space! This one is going to be happening on Monday, September 3rd. It features just three bands, and it’s a short and sweet hardcore show.
This one just features one touring act and that is “Bliind To Life.” They are from Colorado Springs, Colorado and you can stream their newest two-song release on the player embedded below. We also have the band “Split’ coming from St. Louis. This was a very hard band to find on the internet, but we finally found them and their music is online right here. Prevention (from here in Springfield) is playing as well, we are not sure if Prevention is opening, closing the show, or playing right in the middle, so you better be there for all of it!
This show will begin at 7:00 pm and admission this tie around is $7 (bring your cash). Find a facebook event for this one right here. We certainly hope our region and country is in a better place in terms of rising cases of COVID-19 by the time of this show, but we will likely be checking proof of vaccines and requiring masks at this one once again.
Great news! It’s everyone’s favorite (maybe some of your least favorite) time of the year! It’s time for the annual Best of Springfield polls, put together by The Illinois Times!The time where we all vote for our favorite local businesses, artists, musicians, and people in various categories. The “nominee round” is now active online and goes until August 23rd at midnight. (That would be the night of August 22nd, right?)
Finalists will be chosen from the nominee voting and the regular voting among those finalists goes from September 16th through September 27th.
This year as always there is a pretty hefty Music category where you can vote for your favorite musicians, bands, and venues. There is also an “Arts, Culture & Entertainment” section. Dumb Records is in the running for “Best Music Store” under the “Retail” section. Also “Best Place To Go Downtown” under Arts, Culture & Entertainment and “Best Small Music Venue” under Music.
Good luck to everyone out there! Results will be published in the October 28th issue of the Illinois Times.

Saturday night here at Dumb Records seemed to be a successful first show back for us with Bottom Bracket, Attic Salt, and Tilt Warning! We are ready to do this again, this time maybe with heavier bands!
Once again, before we get into the bands for tonight, let’s go over our updated policies regarding attendees and COVID-19:
All show attendees will be required to provide proof of at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine or negative COVID test within the last 72 hoursmasks are required at these events for all attendees.
Masks are required at these events for all attendees.
Okay, for this show, we’ve got… the band END IT from Baltimore, Maryland on tour. You can check out a short song of theirs streaming on the player below. End It will be on tour with Shackled from Howell, New Jersey. Both of them are heavy hardcore bands. Then coming from a different direction of the country is Bitter Truth from Grand Rapids, Michigan! In the middle of all of this we do have the EP release show for local hardcore band Prevention! You know, the four song EP they released earlier this month. Opening things up is a band called Barosa. They might loosely be based out of Decatur, IL.
