Tonight! Happy rainy Sunday. We’ve got another show going on tonight – don’t worry, it’s only four bands this time.
For this show we have four bands. At the top of the bill is “Snuffed” – a hardcore band from Chicago we have been told is “nasty.” Stream the music on the player below to hear just now nasty they really are. Also on this show is Peoria veteran hardcore rockers in Bull Cult! Some of them over there helped open up a new venue in Peoria called the Hot Box. There is also a NEW band from Jacksonville on this bill playing some metal music called “War And Rumor.” Then there is also a NEW band from right here in Springfield playing hardcore music called “Hemlock”!
This show will start at 7:00 pm and admission this time around is $7. We are still requiring masks and checking vaccination cards for shows in October. Find a facebook event for this one right here. Also check out our shows page for a list of other upcoming shows at our space.
Tonight! We’ve got a show. It’s a Wednesday weeknight but we’ve got a six band hardcore show lined up, so we’ve got a long night ahead of us.
This one features heavy hitting Louisville, Kentucky hardcore band “Constraint.” You can stream their latest album Nerf Planet embedded on the player below. Looks like Constraint is going to be touring with Discourage coming all the way from California (and also playing hardcore music)! Ope, looks like we have another Louisville band and that is “Gates To Hell.” There’s even a band from Canada on here called Flash Back??? We have bands coming in every direction for this show! Of course we also have Prevention on the bill – and one update to the show since it was originally announced at that is opening things up looks like we have Direct Measure from the St. Louis area! Or wait… is it Penalty Box opening things up after all? Which band is it?
This show will start at 7:00 pm and admission is $10. Check out a facebook event for this show right here. Also be sure to check out our shows page for a list of everything we have announced and lined up.
Happy Tuesday! Here we go with another record dump. You may have noticed that we got a van, so we’ve been picking up some big record collections big time. Well guess what. We always have been doing that. And we have always been putting stacks upon stacks of records every day. Always have been, always will be. We just do it in style now with our green van. That’s right. So this week we once again have a long list of new and used LPs, and this doesn’t even include all of the CDs and cassettes that we have been putting out, or re-stocks of anything.

Good morning! Happy Monday. We are here to announce another show. We might be slightly behind on getting some show announcements up. This one we are announcing today is happening on Saturday, November 13th! Mark your calendars, and get your fall jackets ready. For this show we have Attic Salt from right here in Springfield – the power pop-punk group who released your favorite album, Get Wise last year in 2020. We also have Tina Sparkle coming from Peoria, Illinois – their first time ever playing Springfield as far as we know! This group has been around the area for a long time, and you can stream their newest album Southern Hospitality on the player below. Also on the gig we got Starter Jackets – making their big return on this side of the pandemic. Opening things up is a newer project from Decatur, Illinois called Oatmilk! Let’s go ahead and give them all one big round of applause.
This show will start at 7:00 pm and admission is $7. Check out a facebook event for the show right here. Also be sure to check out our shows page where we have a list of what we’ve got announced and coming up!
Good morning! Today we are bringing you a brand new demo from a new Springfield project we know nothing about! Gee, we don’t know anything about this at all! It is one big mystery! The project is called “Bad Man” and you can stream the demo “Oh No Bad Man!” on the player embedded below. Is it a full band? A solo project who knows!
We do know that Bad Man is playing its first show in just eight days on Saturday, October 9th here at Dumb Records along with The Antibuddies, Oleander Grey, and Gargantuan. Check out a facebook event for that show here. Also check out our Springfield Album Archive Page where we have been doing a very bad job of keeping up with local releases for this year.
It’s a Thursday, and we will be hosting a nice three-band show inside of our venue tonight! This one features some rock music that will be a little bit of something for everybody. It should be a nice time! Tonight we’ve got the group Sidestep coming from Louisville, Kentucky! You can stream some of Sidestep’s new music on the player below. There are also a couple of local heavy-hitting greats that have not performed here since before the pandemic, however long ago that was now. That includes Taylorville 90’s sounding alternative rock group Stick People, and also very fast and outta-control hardcore band from right here in Springfield, Black Box.
This show starts at 7:00 pm and admission is just $5. Check out a facebook event for this one right here. Also be sure to check out our shows page for another look at what’s coming up in this new era!

Hey-o, it’s a little late in the game (September is already well over halfway done, and was yesterday the first day of fall?), but this is a post letting you know that we have the new issue of Activator Magazine here at our store! And plenty of copies of it still!
As you can see, this issue features hit Springfield hardcore band Prevention on the cover. Hey, that photo was even taken inside of our space! There is the usual album reviews, and Activator’s “Best Bets” which is a calendar for show and concert highlights for this month you should check out. There is also an interview with performer local performer Taylor Moni, an interview with Central Illinois metal band Blind Equation, an interview with solo Peoria musician Emily Antonacci, an interview with local jazz musician Richard Gilman-Opalski, an interview with Chris Bayless – musician from Peoria who started a new venue called “The Hotbox”, a photospread of the “Artists In Harmony” event that was held at Anvil & Forge Brewing, our own “Dumb Perspective” column which this time around focuses on our experience starting up shows again during the pandemic and requiring proof of vaccine at shows, an interview with Mt. Vernon-based musician Tom Doherty, a nice “Soundcheck” section featuring small update snippets with other local artists and musicians, a photo spread of the Old Capitol Blues & BBQ Festival, and another live music calendar!! Sorry, that was a lot. Woo!
For the third time this year, it’s that time of year again. That’s right, we’ve already got another Record Store Day approaching. This one should not come as much of a surprise though because Black Friday Record Store Day happens the day after Thanksgiving every year. And here we are, around two months away from that date, which this year is Friday, November 26th.
This go-round we will likely once again be releasing some type of limited edition Dumb Records t-shirt for the first people in line, exclusive posters, and we will see what else! You can expect a more detailed announcement from us on all of those goodies here in the coming weeks.
Another week has come here at our dumb little record store. We are dealing with some broken AC issues right now… but don’t worry because if we don’t get that figured out today at least the weather is colder. And as one AC unit breaks another is fixed… you may notice our arcade is a little bit cooler than usual! (By just a tad). Our store and arcade is open from 10:00am to 7:00pm every day. Check out our online discogs store here and our online merch store here. Okay, now for some of what’s new in this week:
