Good morning, it has been a while since we fired up the ol’ website. We figure today we’ll give it a try again. Maybe somewhere out there is reading this, maybe not. Anyways, tonight we have a hardcore show happening here at Dumb Records.
Tonight’s lineup includes touring hardcore act “Gates To Hell.” They are from Louisville, Kentucky. You can stream their new live album on the bandcamp player below. Gates To Hell are on tour with Ballista from Dallas, Texas, another hardcore band! Local legends on this show tonight include Springfield hardcore band Prevention (who will be playing last in the lineup if we had to guess). Also Direct Measure from the St. Louis area who are no strangers to our space. Opening things up is the newer Springfield heavy band “Hemlock”.
The show tonight is at 7:00 pm and admission is $10. We are recommending masks as we are once again entering another wave of COVID-19 in our area. Find a facebook event for this one right here.
Good morning! It’s been a while since we’ve made a website post of any kind, and we probably never even announced this show that’s happening tonight here at Dumb Records, but here is the info for it anyway!
Okay, tonight we’ve got a show. We finally have the alternative rock band Fujiko coming from Peoria! This one has been a long time coming – they were going to be playing our anniversary show that we had to postpone from back in January. And here they are! Stream some music on the player below. They will be coming with another Peoria “alternative” band, High Meadows! We are excited for the both to take the Dumb Records stage for the first time. Also taking the stage for the first time is Emily Hough – who has performed here before but in the days before we had a stage! Aaaand The Complaint Line, long time Springfield alternative 90’s rockers, will also finally be performing at our space for the first time as well! Opening things up is a newer and younger solo artist, Pierce Havenar!
That’s 5 acts, starting at 7:00 pm and admission is $7. Check out a facebook for this one right here. I’m not even sure if our shows page is updated right now.
Okay here’s a non-hardcore show announcement for you all! Actually this is just an announcement for a show that we have re-scheduled, similar to one that was supposed to take place in January. This one is actually happening on Friday, April 15th now and it is a jazz and art show!
This show will start at 7:00 pm, and entry this time around is just $5. Find a facebook event for this one here. It is likely we will have our shows page re-booted up by the end of the day today. For no we have no rules regarding covid for this show!
Now it’s time for us to start announcing more shows! Here is another hardcore show (don’t worry we got some other non-hardcore shows coming up to announce later) – happening on Saturday, March 26th.
This show features touring act “Si Dos Quiere” from Chicago. They are a hardcore band and you can stream their latest three-song release on the player below. Also from Chicago and hardcore/punk band we have the return of SNUFFED, who played here at some point last year and features members of other groups formerly from Central Illinois in the Black Sheep years. Right in the middle of the lineup is Springfield / Decatur / Central Illinois newer hardcore group SHROUD, who recently had a demo come out. Before them is “DWELL” which is a hardcore band from a little drive South of here in Alton, Illinois. Opening things up is a brand new band from here that we know little about called Subversion!
All of that starts at 7:00 pm and admission is $7. Check out a facebook event for the show right here. We’re still working on updating our shows page, sorry. What’s our covid policy for this show? We are no longer checking vaccination status at the door and for this one we will probably no longer be requiring masks!
Good morning and good afternoon! We just had a show last night. New and used records are still rolling out here at Dumb Records every day and our shelves are overflowing again (and we don’t have room to put any new shelving at this point). So someone better come and buy some records from us. We are open every day from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm.

Happy Monday, guess what – there is a show happening here at Dumb Records tonight (the first hardcore show of 2022 for us) – there have also been some lineup changes on this one even since we announced it one week ago on our site.
Tonight! We still have Springfield hardcore legends Prevention playing last, headlining the gig. We also still have the main touring band on this one – “Payasa” from Chicago. You can check out some of their music streaming on the player below. The lineup changes are happening on the opening acts – the previous bands which all started with the letter “P” from out of town are no longer playing. Looks like they found another local “P” band and that is “Pucker uP.” Tonight’s show of course, has been brought to you by the letter P.
This show starts at 7:00 pm on Monday and admission is $7! The arcade will be open! Find a facebook event here. We do have a couple of other shows lined up in the coming weeks and months we’ll announce soon. Here’s a covid policy update as well:
• Masks? Please wear masks for this show, probably not required for future shows after this one? • We’re not checking for vaccine or negative test status anymore. Horray.
New stuff! Here we are… on a Thursday with a long list of some new arrivals this week at Dumb Records. Our store is still open here every day from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm.

Good afternoon! Today we bring news about an upcoming Record Store Day – the organization of Record Store Day is back this year with a more return-to-normal big RSD even in April, which is how things were in our pre-pandemic world.
Record Store Day is happening this year on Saturday, April 23rd (Jeff’s birthday). There have been 326 titles announced for Record Store Day this year, all of them released online through the Record Store Day website right here. Surely this is going to be our biggest Record Store Day yet as we always try to go bigger and bigger every year- also there are a few notable things with this list! Record Store Day is mainly in April, however we noticed that there are 31 items on this list mixed throughout that are being released June 18th for a separate “Drop Date!!!” We will be ordering everything being released both dates, but be careful to look for those release dates when looking at specific items on the Record Store Day website!
We also have this list printed off in our store for you to look at and help us know what to order the most of by placing small check marks next to items you know you are going to want. Our store will open at 8:00 am on that day like we do for every Record Store Day, and we will likely have an exclusive shirt printed for the first people that are in line. It looks like Recycled Records will be participating to some extent as well, in their latest announcement they have extended the closing of their store and sales to the end of April.
