It’s been a minute since we’ve posted one of these. Okay, it’s been a minute since we posted anything. COVID-19 is still raging across the globe and it’s also cold outside. We cancelled all of our shows pretty much. Our store is still open 10am-7pm every day though and we are continuing to put new records out on the shelves. We still have an 8 year anniversary sale going on starting tomorrow: January 7th-12th. We’ll probably do a separate post for that tomorrow. But for now, here is a long list of some new and used LPs that have recently hit the shelves of our store that are not re-stocks.

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.
Before we get into the bands for tonight, let’s go over our updated policies regarding attendees and COVID-19:
All show attendees will be required to provide proof of at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine or negative COVID test within the last 72 hoursmasks are required at these events for all attendees.
Masks are required at these events for all attendees.
*Proof of vaccine can be in the form of either your physical COVID-19 vaccination card or a photo on your phone. Okay? Okay, now that we’ve got that out of the way here’s who’s playing tonight: we’ve got… Bottom Bracket who put out their full length album I Don’t Care Enough To Stay right at the start of the pandemic. We’ve got Attic Salt, who also put out an album, Get Wise right in the middle of the pandemic. AND we’ve got a brand new band called “Tilt Warning” that formed during the pandemic.
All of this starts at Dumb Records at 7:00 pm. Admission is just $5. Find a facebook event here. I think that’s it.
The first shows that we have lined up at Dumb Records are coming up quick – this Saturday, August 14th, and Monday, August 16th. It’s pretty clear that when these shows were booked on the calendar and the decision was made to move forward with them, cases of COVID-19 in our region and country overall seamed to be in a much better place then they are now. Because COVID-19 is still a very real threat to our community, we are going to be taking needed precautions to make sure the shows we have lined up are as safe as possible.
All show attendees will be required to provide proof of at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine or negative COVID test within the last 72 hoursmasks are required at these events for all attendees.
Masks are required at these events for all attendees.
*Proof of vaccine can be in the form of either your physical COVID-19 vaccination card or a photo on your phone.
We are still in uncertain times and we currently do not have any other indoor shows officially announced other than the upcoming two – but we will be likely enforcing this policy until further notice. The alley show with Laura Jane Grace on August 28th is a free event and outdoors – but as of right now it is safe to say we will all be masking up in the alley, and we are asking for those not vaccinated to not come to that event. You can likely expect a post regarding that show and policies for that at some point before the event.

Amazing… just, amazing. You may have heard the big news by now, but if now – on Saturday, August 28th we’ve got one for the books coming up in the alleyway between Dumb Records and Good Heart Tattoo. Laura Jane Grace – singer and guitarist for the punk rock band Against Me! – and also “notable for being one of the first highly visible punk rock musicians to come out as transgender, after she publicly came out in May 2012″ – will be performing.
In addition to LJG we have a few other solo acts performing. Cole Bridges is coming up from St. Louis – a solo musician formerly from Champaign. Jessica Knight of the band Looming will also be playing, as well as Ricki Marvel also from here in Springfield.
The show will start exactly at 7:00 pm and it is free. With conditions of the pandemic still being up in the air, there might be a strong mask suggestion even if the show is outdoors. We don’t have a facebook event for this one yet, sorry. Laura Jane Grace released her solo album Stay Alive last year on Polyvinyl Records. You can stream that on the player below.

And now, it’s time to get back into the local hip hop. There’s a new trio of local rappers who have teamed up to create the new “Gang Nem 123” – a group featuring Killa Marion, Lit Jxt, and Dizzy Vibez. They have came out with their debut seven-track release entitled Go Mode. You can stream one of the songs “Spaceship” off of that release down below. You can also find the whole thing streaming on Youtube Music or iHeartRadio by clicking on those links.
We have also added Go Mode to our Springfield Album Archive page for 2021, bringing us to 15 local releases we have had featured so far this year.

We just caught word of a new Springfield musical project that put out an album at the start of this month… They are called “Splendid Flunkys” and feature recording artist extraordinaire March Schwartz and also Scott Faingold (Epsom, Heptanes, etc.) as a duo. The two have released a debut album called Throne Room and you can stream all 14 tracks of that on the player below! Also head on over to the Splendid Flunkys bandcamp page where you can purchase the download of the album. And a description from their page:
“Splendid Flunkys is the raw, loud, punkish garage rock brainchild of veteran rockers Scott Faingold (Backwards Day, Epsom) and Mark Schwartz (Forest Saints, Tin Ghost, End Times Trio). With a combination of rib-tickling humor and brutal self- and societal observations, their music is not for the faint of heart. Take a deep breath and enter into the company of the Splendid Flunkys.”
Splendid Flunkys don’t have any plans for any live shows as far as we know. We’ve added this one to our Springfield album archive page, where we definitely have some catching up to do!
