Tonight at Dumb Records: “Harry’s Houseparty” (Harry Styles Fan Event)

Good morning, and happy weekend. This is a post to let you know about a fan event we’ve got going on at Dumb Records tonight. Not the normal type of event we have in our space, but a new group known as “Swift Springfield” comprised of a few Sangamon CEO students organized a Taylor Swift fan event at our space earlier this spring and it went over very well, so here we are again for another one!

Tonight, June 10th, is a fan event for English pop singer and actor Harry Styles! Harry Styles had a new album come out last month called “Harry’s House” and we have plenty of copies on vinyl right here in the store. Tickets are being sold online right here through “Swift Springfield”. We will be raffling off a ONE DIRECTION turntable and also one copy of “Harry’s House” on vinyl! That kicks off tonight at 7:00 pm.

Check our shows page for a small list of shows (with bands) that we have coming up.

Tonight at Dumb Records: Gates To Hell, Ballista, Prevention, Direct Measure, Hemlock

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.

Tonight at Dumb Records: Fujiko, High Meadows, Emily Hough, The Complaint Line, Pierce Havenar

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.

Tonight at Dumb Records: Prevention, Payasa, Pucker Up

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.

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!

Tonight at Dumb Records: Jocko, Blind Equation, Pucker Up, Long Birds

We have a show going on tonight here at Dumb Records! Did we even make an official announcement post for this show? Hmmm! Anyways, tonight we have the return of Ohmaha Nebraska hardcore group JOCKO. Jocko has performed here before the pandemic and also at Black Sheep for the last Dumb Fest, Dumb Fest 6. You can check out their newest release streaming on the player below. Opening acts on this show include Blind Equation playing “cyber grind” from Bloomington, Illinois. There is a first ever show for a new Springfield band called “Pucker Up” featuring members of other bands. And last but not least (and maybe going first) is Long Birds, a younger punk group from Champaign, IL.

All of this starts at 7:00 pm tonight and admission is $7. Find a facebook event right here. We will still be requiring masks at shows and checking for proof of vaccine or negative COVID test within 72 hours.

Tonight at Dumb Records: Attic Salt, Tina Sparkle, Starter Jackets, Oatmilk

We’ve got a show happening here at Dumb Records tonight! It’s a cold one out there, but our heat is on and working.

For this show we have Attic Salt from right here in Springfield – the power pop-punk group who released your favorite album, Get Wise last year in 2020. We also have Tina Sparkle coming from Peoria, Illinois – their first time ever playing Springfield as far as we know! This group has been around the area for a long time, and you can stream their newest album Southern Hospitality on the player below. Also on the gig we got Starter Jackets – making their big return on this side of the pandemic. Opening things up is a newer project from Decatur, Illinois called Oatmilk! Let’s go ahead and give them all one big round of applause.
