Dumb Records October Holiday Hours

We are once again trying something really stupid that we might regret later on. Now introducing: Dumb Records holiday hours! Where we don’t cut back any hours – we add some… for fun! And for Halloween! Our store is usually open every day from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm. For these select days we are adding more hours:

October 26th (the night of the 25th) we will be open from midnight to 3:00 am.

• October 28th we will be open until 10:00 pm along with a handful of other shops downtown!

• October 31st (halloween) we will be open until 10:00 pm! We might even have candy!

Then for all of these extended hours, we are opening up our arcade to everybody (no fee to enter). However, our limit of 5 people to the arcade at a time does apply, and masks are still required.

Dumb Records Baseball Tees Available (Some Sizes Already Sold Out)!


Amazing. We dropped some hot, fresh, and new new shirts on our online storenvy store. They are baseball tees (pictured above) printed on supersoft Bella Canvas brand shirts by MilesTShirts. We can’t believe how many we sold in the first… it hasn’t even been 24 hours yet, and we are already out of stock in some sizes. Looks like we are going to have to be getting more printed! And wow we are pretty low on the pink and yellow tees that we released last week!

These run for $16 online – if you live in Springfield select the “local shipping” option on our store and we will deliver them to you at no cost! Check out everything we have in stock at our online storenvy store right here!

Dumb Records Gift Cards Now Available Online


As we adapt to the times more and more, we are re-vamping and adding / updating things to our online store. Today we added Dumb Records gift cards – now available in $25 and $50 variants on our storenvy site – however, get in touch with us if you would like a different custom amount. We might even have it set up to where you are paying less than $50 for a $50 gift card.

Find that on our storenvy site right here. Don’t forget to check out any of our 5,200+ items listed on our Discogs page online if you are up for browsing our selection right now instead of waiting until our physical store opens back up.

Dumb Records Online Merch Store Re-Launched!


Great news everyone! We are not sure how much of a shirt-buying mood everyone is in after these crazy past few days, but we are preparing to have to close up our store (it has been loosely open today), and enter in online-mode in these new modern times.

We have now launched our storenvy page, featuring a new run of green Dumb Records t-shirts, long-sleeves, and crew neck sweatshirts. Check that out right here. Placing an order and paying online is easy. For those of you in Springfield, we might just deliver them to your mailbox.

Don’t forget we have an online Discogs store as well, where we sell new and used records and CDs and update daily.

Order something from us and we just might throw in a special note or drawing!

Looking For Local Music For Our Growing Local Music Section


Lately we have been working on getting our local music section here at the new downtown Dumb Records back up and running and better than ever. Today we are giving a call out for any more local music that we are missing on our shelves! We know there is LOTS out there! We can purchase cassettes / CDs / records from local bands directly or work out deals on consignment. Just come in and talk to us, or you can always email us at dumbrecs@gmail.com.

Our store is open every day from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm at 418 E Monroe Street downtown.

Dumb Records Online Store


We had mentioned at some point that we were working on launching an online store for Dumb Records merchandise (shirts, sweatshirts, bags, etc). Well, the store is now up! And we can hardly keep all sizes of our shirts, sweatshirts, long sleeves, hoodies, and zip-up jackets stocked!! We are trying, but they are just too hot! Check out our new store which is a storenvy page right here. Yes, all of your orders will ship with stickers and tattoos. If we are out of your size in something, don’t worry, we plan on putting more shirt orders in and keeping things stocked. Thanks to Milestshirts.com.

Don’t forget our store is open right now at 418 E Monroe Street every day from 4:00 to 7:00 pm. We also have a Discogs page set up where we have just about all of our store’s records and CDs.

We’ve Got Buttons!

59282_591763064175146_728971623_nHuge, huge news for The Black Sheep community and Springfield music today! (Okay, not really). We now have Black Sheep buttons! Isn’t that great!? You can find the new buttons along with patches, posters, and sometimes stickers at any Black Sheep show. We will be selling them for fifty cents each.

The buttons were made thanks to Pillow Fight Buttons based out of Champaign, Illinois. If you play in a band that is looking to get buttons made they are the ones to get ahold of! Thanks Chloe!


Website Updates

Happy Monday, everyone. We have made a few small updates to our website and webstore recently.

The first is that we finally have a donate button! The donation jar is always set up inside Black Sheep, but if you want to donate towards our cause at any time you can now do it through paypal. The donate button is located on the right —-> if you are on our home page.

If you are on our home page, you may have also noticed that we added a couple of things to the side bar. There is a calendar so you can go back to any day and see the news posts for that day. Then there is also a “top posts and pages” feature that shows the most popular posts and pages in the past 48 hours.

In our store we have added some hand screen printed posters from the November 3rd show for $3. They are available at shows and will be up in our webstore shortly. We have also made the regular posters $1. What a deal!
