March 10th at Dumb Records: Prevention, Gumm, Direct Measure, Bull Cult, Black Box


We haven’t announced this show yet? Wow, we get to get more on top of things. This one is happening later on in March – Tuesday, March 10th. It’s gonna be a stinger of a gig. This one is going to be a tour kickoff of sorts for the bands Prevention and their Tennessee-based friends, Gumm who have played here a couple of times before. Nice. Stream some of Gumm’s music on the player below. You already know what Prevention sounds like. Also on this show is “Direct Measure” who used to be called… Brute Force. They have played here a bunch too, but you wouldn’t know it looking at the flier because they changed their name. Also on this show is the mighty Bull Cult from Galesburg, playing here for the second time ever. Black Box from Springfield is going to be opening things up with their wild & crazy hardcore music. Enjoy!

All of that is at 7:00 pm and admission is $7! Hopefully the weather will be warmer by then. Check out a facebook event for this one right here. Also be sure to check out our shows page for a good look at what else is coming up at Dumb Dumb’s!
