Tonight at Dumb Records: Die, Prevention, Split, War And Rumor

Good morning and happy Sunday. We’ve got a show happening at Dumb Records TONIGHT. It’s another hardcore show. This is also our last show happening this year??

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.

All of that is tonight at 7:00 pm and admission is $7. You better believe we are still checking for proof of vaccine or negative COVID test within 72 hours at the door. And duh, masks are required. Find a facebook event for this one right here.

Tonight at Dumb Records: Flatfoot 56, Night Night Boy, Yap Trap

There’s a big one going down here tonight at Dumb Records. There’s been a slight lineup change since this one was first announced.

We still have big time headliner Flatfoot 56 on the bill – 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 gig is the Brandon Carnes alternative short-song rock band “Night Night Boy“ – playing for the first time since the pandemic. The lineup change we have is that Attic Salt is no longer performing, instead we have a newer band called Yap Trap from Champaign! They don’t have any music recorded yet as far as we know.

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 hereAnd 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.

Tonight at CFP (House): SlutBomb, False Negative, Pucker Up

There’s a short and sweet show going on at a house in town we figured we might as well tell you about happening tonight! This one is at the CFP House and features three hardcore/punk bands.

Tonight the C.F.P. features the band “SlutBomb” from Ohio. That’s a pretty punk sounding band name, see if their music matches up on the player below. Also on this show is False Negative – from here? From the 217? Where is this band from, here or Champaign? Boy we are out of the loop. Opening things up is the newer hardcore band Pucker Up from right here in Springfield featuring members of other bands.

That all starts at 7:00 pm at C.F.P. We can’t tell you where the house is, you have to go on a scavenger hunt to find it. Admission is $7, sounds like masks are required and if you are unvaccinated you better stay at home. No facebook event either, this is the future.

Tonight at Dumb Records: World’s Greatest Dad, Tilt Warning, Kate Laine

Good morning! Tonight we’ve got another show happening at our space! There are only three acts performing instead of six – how appropriate for a Tuesday night show!

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. And yes we WILL once again be checking for proof of vaccines and masks will be required. Find a facebook event for this one right here!
