What’s this, today we are posting about a show that’s coming up in town!??! The first time we have done so in close to… four months??? This one is not happening at our space, it is happening just one block over from us outside of Buzz Bomb Brewery (406 E Adams). Buzz Bomb has been hosting live music acts (usually one per night) this past month or so, and we are starting to see other live music pop up around town as well (usually always outdoors). This is one of the first events coming up we’ve seen that we feel is notable to mention on our site and fits more of the description of a traditional “show” with multiple acts. Happening on Saturday, July 25th and those two acts are… Taylorville/Springfield alt. rockers Stick People, and Springfield punk group Blushe. Both groups have had new music come out during this pandemic.

Find a facebook event for this “punk night” right here. Start time is 8:00 pm, admission is free, and this would be… all ages? We are pretty sure? Also it might be time for us to reboot our Springfield shows page to keep track of some things happening around town?? Hmmmmm…

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.

Hear-ye, hear-ye! We have quite an interesting show to tell you about happening in just two in a half weeks on Friday, March 20th. An old Springfield band reunion, and two touring bands from different parts of the country both featuring members of great bands that have been here before. Let’s start from the top. We have… a local band that was active in the 1990’s called “Yellow Number Seven!” Are you intrigued? The band is back with some new recordings which you can find on the player directly below! Also on this show is… all the way up north in Wisconsin, the “Florida Brothers Band.” That’s right, they are from Wisconsin. AND features at least one member of the legendary Wabeno Rock Farm. If you know, then you know. If you don’t, you should still come out to the show. The OTHER touring band we have on this bill is called Velvet Bethany. They play garage punk and are from Buffalo, New York and feature members of the band Radiation Risks! Okay, okay. Opening things up we have a rare performance of the local stoner metal group FOOT. First time playing here at the new Dumb Records even??

That’s a lot going on on one show. All of that starts at 7:00 pm and admission is $7. Check out a facebook event for this one right here. And of course be sure to check out our shows page for a good look at what else is coming up at our space this spring.
