December 11th at Dumb Records: Flatfoot 56, Attic Salt, Night Night Boy

Hey, there’s a big show going on over here that we have not yet made an official website post here for! That’s right, on Saturday December 11th, Flatfoot 56 is comin’ to town!

Flatfoot 56 – American Scottish / Celtic punk band from Chicago, Illinois. They have played here in town a couple of times before, at least once as far back as a full decade ago at The Black Sheep Cafe. They have been a band since the year 2000 – that’s 20+ years. You can stream their latest album, Black Thorn on the player below. Also on this show once again is Attic Salt, a band from here we all know and love. Opening things up this time around is the Brandon Carnes alternative short-song rock band “Night Night Boy“.

This show is a $10 banger, and starts at 7:00 pm like most of our other shows. Find a facebook event right here. Also check out our shows page for a list of upcoming shows right here. And this part we’re serious about – like our other shows, we will be enforcing masks worn by all attendees and checking for proof of vaccine (either in physical card form or photos of one), or negative COVID test within 72 hours.

December 19th at Dumb Records: Die, Prevention, Split, War And Rumor

Alright here, real quick! We’re gonna go over a show announcement real quick! This one is happening on Sunday, December 19th so mark your calendars!

Okay, for this show we’ve got a band called “Die” from Chicago! Stream their music on the player embedded below. Didn’t we just recently have a band called Die play here? Yes, but that was “DYE” from Kansas City, apparently a different band. Also on this show of course is heavy hitting hardcore band Prevention. Then another band called SPLIT. Didn’t they recently play here too? No, that show got cancelled and they didn’t get to play here, so now they are. And we’ve got War & Rumor from Jacksonville.

That’s it, that’s the show. This show starts at 7:00pm, admission is $7, and we will be requiring masks and checking for proof of vaccine or negative COVID tests within 72 hours still.

Additions To November 27th Show: Big Laugh (Milwaukee) + Some Other New Band

Good afternoon and here is an *official* post to let you know we have a couple of additions to a show previously announced for Saturday, November 27th here at Dumb Records. Certainly this will be a busy weekend being the day after Black Friday Record Store Day.

The lineup previously announced is Superfun Yeah Yeah Rocketship, Nite Frvr, and Trauma Harness all from the St. Louis area, and then “Animals With Human Names” – the hip hop project from here. Now two new added acts include BIG LAUGH (hardcore band from Milwaukee, Wisconsin), who have played here at Dumb Record before the pandemic, and also some other new band that we don’t even know the name of from Springfield and Central Illinois. This new band features Drew Kodrich on something. Stream some of Big Laugh’s music on the player below.

Find a facebook for this show right here. Start time is still 7:00 pm and the admission cost was $6, so who knows maybe it’s $7 now. Vaccine cards and masks required upon entry.

November 30th at Dumb Records: World’s Greatest Dad, Tilt Warning, Kate Laine

It’s time to get back on track with our show announcement posts over here. There are a few shows that have been announced outside of our usual website or facebook events have gone up for! This one is happening on Tuesday, November 30th!

For this show we have the national touring indie/emo band from Atlanta, Georgia called World’s Greatest Dad. (That’s WGD for short, and you can stream their latest release on the bandcamp player embedded below). Actually you know what, stream both of their latest releases on the player below. Also on this show is Tilt Warning – the fairly new three-piece emo band from here and Central Illinois. Opening things up is indie rock act Kate Laine, who we are excited to see back here at Dumb for the first time since before the pandemic!

All of that starts at 7:00 pm and admission is $10. It is safe to say that we WILL once again be checking for proof of vaccines and masks will be required. Find a facebook event for this one right here!

November 27th at Dumb Records: Superfun Yeah Yeah Rocketship, Trauma Harness, Nite Frvr, Animals With Human Names

Here’s another show announcement for you all! This one is happening here just the very day after Black Friday – on Saturday, November 27th! It features a number of acts who haven’t played in Springfield in years.

“Superfun Yeah Yeah Rocketship” is a fun dancey type project from the St. Louis area, which has been going on for a very long time now. Literally the last time they played here was in 2012 at Black Sheep. Look, it was even one of our first “show tonight” website posts. You can stream a brand new song from S.Y.Y.R. on the player embedded below. Also on the bill is St. Louis area post-punk band Trauma Harness, who used to frequently play The Black Sheep as well. We also got “NITE FRVR” (I think pronounced “night forever”) which is another project featuring Pat Cadaver, of Bellville Illinois You’re Not Kablamo fame). Opening things up is the one Springfield act on the bill and that is hip hop project Animals With Human Names.

Woohoo! All of that kicks off at 7:00 pm and admission is $6. Check out a facebook event for that show right here. Also check out our shows page for a look at what all is coming up that has been announced at our space.
