We’ve now already announced one show happening in August (August 16th)… and here is another one, happening on Saturday, August 14th here at Dumb Records downtown. Those two shows will be our first shows back in this new era – and also our first time having full bands perform on our stage that was built close to a year and a half ago.
This one is just a nice and sweet three band lineup. We have Springfield emo / indie act Bottom Bracket at the top of the bill. The band released their album I Don’t Care Enough To Stay last year, which you can stream on the player below. Another band that released a killer album last year – Attic Salt is also playing. Opening things up is a brand new band called “Tilt Warning” – playing their first show! How fitting!
Oh yeah, and our arcade IS going to be open for these shows we have lined up – all games are set to free play along with show admission. This one starts at 7:00 pm and admission is $5. Check out our shows page to look at what we’ve got officially lined up right now!
Holy smokes, we gotta show. We are announcing a show. The first show we are announcing to happen almost a year and a half after our last show in March of 2020. We might have more shows to announce soon, we will see. This one is happening Monday, August 16th.
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.
You can check out a facebook event for this show right here. Looks like we gotta go back and re-boot our Dumb Records show page now!
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…
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.
We have a show to tell you about today that is farrrr into the future, we are talkin’ May 10th here. That’s so far away and practically summer… a little hard for us to imagine right now. But, we have a show, and it looks pretty stacked. The band Pointbreak is coming all the way from Arizona. You can check out some of their music on the player below. Coming with them is The Price Is Right??? No, sorry, that is “Price of Life”… a band that no one knows anything about, no location or music. Then we got some local acts lined up. This includes Capitol Offense from Decatur, who is also playing another show coming up here sooner than May at some point. Also Prevention.. who are definitely playing here sooner than this show. Opening things up is “Cold Realm” a new project from Carbondale!?!
This show starts at 7:00 pm and admission will be $7. Check out a facebook event for the show right here. Also be sure to check out our shows page for a good look at everything else coming up this spring.
