Good morning, and happy tornado drill Tuesday. We finally have our next show to announce here at Dumb Records, coming up in just six days on Monday, March 7th. Oh, it’s March!
This show is another hardcore show. Prevention is playing. The touring band on this bill is PAYASA, “blistering hardcore” music from Chicago. You can stream their demo on the player embedded below. Then we have “Pysop” from Iowa City, Iowa! On tour with Payasa maybe? But they don’t have any music recorded yet it looks like! Whoops! The fourth and final act on this show is Pinkville from St. Louis! They play loud punk music!
This show starts at 7:00 pm on Monday and admission is $7! The arcade will be open! Find a facebook event here. This is the only show we have announced right now, we’ll re-boot our shows page when we announce a couple more. Here’s a covid policy update as well:
We are here in another week at Dumb Records – unfortunately we did have to close the store for part of the day yesterday (which is something we never do, we promise we had a good reason to!!!), but we are BACK open full force today and all of the following days. You might have noticed we slowed down a tad on putting things out these past few days, and we promise we have a good reason for that too. We are back open every day 10:00am- 7:00pm now and have records going on the shelves today and every day again! Here is a slightly shorter than usual list, but still a list of some of what’s new – not including re-stocks. Let’s have a look!

Good afternoon! Today we bring news about an upcoming Record Store Day – the organization of Record Store Day is back this year with a more return-to-normal big RSD even in April, which is how things were in our pre-pandemic world.
Record Store Day is happening this year on Saturday, April 23rd (Jeff’s birthday). There have been 326 titles announced for Record Store Day this year, all of them released online through the Record Store Day website right here. Surely this is going to be our biggest Record Store Day yet as we always try to go bigger and bigger every year- also there are a few notable things with this list! Record Store Day is mainly in April, however we noticed that there are 31 items on this list mixed throughout that are being released June 18th for a separate “Drop Date!!!” We will be ordering everything being released both dates, but be careful to look for those release dates when looking at specific items on the Record Store Day website!
We also have this list printed off in our store for you to look at and help us know what to order the most of by placing small check marks next to items you know you are going to want. Our store will open at 8:00 am on that day like we do for every Record Store Day, and we will likely have an exclusive shirt printed for the first people that are in line. It looks like Recycled Records will be participating to some extent as well, in their latest announcement they have extended the closing of their store and sales to the end of April.
We better get back to the local music news sometime around here. This band isn’t even local anymore, they moved to Chicago. But they are still in our hearts. 3-piece “sparkle-math-noodle-punk” band Bottom Bracket have dropped a new 5-track EP entitled A Figure In Armor out on Rat King Records. You can stream that new EP on the bandcamp player below! Also head on over to Bottom Bracket’s bandcamp page to purchase the download of the album. We will have copies available on CD at Dumb Records here in the coming days.
Good morning and happy Sunday! We never really made the official announcement on our site here that shows at Dumb Records are BACK, for the first time in 2022, the case numbers for covid-19 in our area have gone back down and we are ready to rock and roll once again. We don’t really have anything else announced other than this show happening tonight right now.
So tonight – we have a killer lineup of acts performing at our space. Bottom Bracket makes their Springfield return for the first time since moving to Chicago, (did you know they moved to Chicago?) (they had some lineup changes and moved to Chicago at some point during all of this), they also just put out a new EP! Stream it on the player below. Also up on deck (and probably playing last in the lineup) is heavy hitting pop punk band Attic Salt. Here is a secret: their latest album Get Wise is up in the Dumb Records charts the most popular album we sell next to Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours. In the middle of the lineup is the indie alternative band The Telephone Junkies, they are from all over the place nowadays. Opening things up is Marble Teeth from Decatur.
Nice. You can check out a facebook event for this show right here. Oh yeah, it starts at 7:00 pm and admission is $10. We still have rules in place for shows regarding the pandemic. Either proof of vaccine (any shot) OR proof of negative covid test within 72 hours is required upon door entry, and masks are required at all times during the show. Thanks and see you all tonight!
Happy Tuesday! We are really starting to beef our shelves back up over here, after things were starting to slim down after the holiday season and our big anniversary sales. Our store has more shelving, we are starting to be as stocked as ever – on records, (new and used), but also turntables, speakers, and a bunch of other stuff! We are still open 10am-7pm every day, and have our first show back in a while on Sunday! Here’s a list of what’s new, not including re-stocks:

Good morning! These past few days sure have been snowy but we also sure have been CRANKING out the records over here at the Dumb Barn! We spent a lot of this Wednesday and Thursday closed along with most other downtown businesses and are back open today – although the streets are definitely not back up to being anywhere near 100% cleared, and there is still a snow emergency effect until 9:00 pm tonight! For now though we are here today and will continue being open every day from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm. We’ll be here when the snow clears too, and chances are we’ll be very well stocked with records when it does clear. Okay here are our new records for these past few weeks (not including re-stocks):

Here we go trying to keep up with anything local music related in the year 2022… good luck to us! We all already know that Mark Schwartz is going to crank out at least 20 albums this year under various project titles, here is the first of them for this year. This one is a new project called “Petulant Clark” featuring Mark Schwartz and Scott Faingold of Epsom. A brand new project and would you look at that, they already have a 43-track long greatest hits album. Stream that on the player below or head over to the Petulant Clark bandcamp page and stream or download the release.
We’ll see how keeping up with our Springfield album archive page for the year 2022 goes… for now we’re starting off with this release and we’ll see how much on top of it we will be! Good luck to us all!
Good morning and greetings, Earthlings! It’s been a minute since we’ve had an upgrade in our arcade! (Okay, that’s not entirely true, we did just put in Shrek pinball about a month ago). Maybe it’s been a minute since a non-pinball upgrade. This is a post not to let you know that there is a new game, but just to let you know that we upgraded one of our games – GALAGA, to include a trackball and a few extra games. The official lineup on the machine is now as follows:
MR. DO’S CASTLE
PAC & PAL
DELUXE SPACE INVADERS
YIE AR KUNG-FU
DIG DUG II
DONKEY KONG PAULINE EDITION
DONKEY KONG 3
DONKEY KONG JUNIOR
That’s a lot to unpack right there. That’s definitely hours upon hours of gaming ahead of us right now. The underground Springfield pinball forum is more alive and well than ever, and discussion on these games has already begun. The other great thing about all of these games is that it does save high scores on everything!! Most high scores on these games are easy to get right now, so come on down! The Dumb Records arcade is open everyday along with the store from 10am-7pm. Entry is $5 or free with purchase of $10 or more, and from there all of our games are set to free-play. Be on the lookout for a new arcade contest to be announced soon.
