Tonight at Dumb Records: Grey Slush, The Telephone Junkies, Hushpad

Yes. There IS a show happening at Dumb Records tonight! It’s a three-band show! The bands are more in the alternative and indie-rock directions! Maybe even some shoegaze music! For this show we have “Grey Slush” – Grey Slush is an indie rock group from Peoria Illinois! You can stream their debut EP on the player embedded below. For this show we also have the return of The Telephone Junkies! Telephone Junkies put out an album last year and it’s great. Looks like opening things up we have the Lincoln, Illinois-based shoegaze project Hushpad. What an all around nice time.

This show will start at 7:00 pm and admission is $7. Check out a facebook event for this one right here. Also check our shows page on our site for a list of all three shows we have lined up right now.

Tonight at Dumb Records: Blind To Life, Split, Prevention

Guess what? We’ve got another show tonight – our third one back inside our space since our return since this dreadful pandemic (which is still lingering on in our world). Tonight is just a short and sweet three-band Monday night show.

Tonight the show just features one touring act and that is “Bliind To Life.” They are from Colorado Springs, Colorado and you can stream their newest two-song release on the player embedded below. We also have the band “Split’ coming from St. Louis. This was a very hard band to find on the internet, but we finally found them and their music is online right here. Prevention (from here in Springfield) is playing as well, we are not sure if Prevention is opening, closing the show, or playing right in the middle, so you better be there for all of it!

This show will begin at 7:00 pm and admission this tie around is $7 (bring your cash). Find a facebook event for this one right here. And YES, we ARE still checking for proof of vaccination cards (or proof of a negative Covid test within the past 72 hours) at this show once again, and masks are required as well.

Tonight at Dumb Records: End It, Shackled, Bitter Truth, Prevention, Barosa

Saturday night here at Dumb Records seemed to be a successful first show back for us with Bottom Bracket, Attic Salt, and Tilt Warning! We are ready to do this again, this time maybe with heavier bands!

Once again, before we get into the bands for tonight, let’s go over our updated policies regarding attendees and COVID-19:

Tonight at Dumb Records: Bottom Bracket, Attic Salt, Tilt Warning

Oh boy! It feels like forever since we’ve made one of these posts… TONIGHT – it looks like we have a show happening at Dumb Records for the first time in 1.5 years. We have a new stage. We have a new arcade. It’s going to be the first time we’ve gotten to use both of those for a show.
