Today is a big day lined up for our own little record store Dumb Records which actually turns three years old today! Hard to believe it’s already been three years since we launched Dumb Records in Southtown, and since then the volunteer-ran store has expanded in size, expanded our hours to be open every day of the week, and even bought our very own elephant. To celebrate the anniversary of Dumb Records, today is the first ever Free Record Day. If you walk in the store any time between 10:00 am and 10:00 pm today, you will get handed a free pre-wrapped record. You don’t know what you are going to get.
In addition to all of that, there will also be some music acts playing a free show in the store tonight at 7:00 pm. Tonight we have a collab set that is going to be one for the books between Animals With Human Names and DJ Tariq. Things are sure to get wild for that one. Then we have Peaches & Bacon for a little something different – an old time music duo from here in town. Opening things up is a performance by a newer solo Springfield musician, Alec James. Stream some of Alec’s music on the player below.
