Here we have more exciting things happening as we go into the year 2017 – on Wednesday, January 11th this year Southtown record store Dumb Records will be celebrating three whole years of existence since their start in 2014. To celebrate there of course will be a show happening inside the store, but the store is also inventing a brand new holiday – “Free Record Day.” That’s right- every person through the door of the store on this day will receive a free pre-packaged 12″ record. This could mean new or used, or of any genre- you don’t know what you are going to get! We have been promised that there will be some real gems thrown into the mix. The store is going to be open extended hours this day from 10:00 am to 10:00 pm so you have plenty of time to stop in and check it out.
For the in-store show happening at 7:00 pm that night (which is also free) there are some other surprises. We have a battle / collab set happening between “New York’s Deadliest DJ” – DJ Tariq and also new Springfield hip hop project “Animals With Human Names.” We are not sure what to expect for that! Check out the new tape from Animals With Human Names streaming below. Also on this show is Peaches & Bacon – a bluegrass duo based right here in Springfield and also involved in running communications over at the Lincoln Library. Opening things up we have a newer talented local singer/songwriter Alec James.
