DUMB FE5T Happening June 9th, 10th, and 11th


An announcement on Dumb Fest seems a little over do at this point, but tonight we are excited to finally OFFICIALLY announce that Dumb Fest #5 is happening this summer on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday June 9th, 10th, and 11th.  The first wave of ten bands playing the fest will come this Tuesday, March 21st right here on our site so look out for that.

We do not have all of the complete details on where the festival shows will be held this year, but you can expect the usual Black Sheep, Skank Skates locations plus involvement from Dumb Records and Southtown Studio. Plus aftershows in a barn somewhere and also somewhere in downtown Springfield.

Saturday at Dumb Records: Last Minute Karaoke Night with Bleeding Gums and Cohete


We didn’t have any shows planned at Dumb Records or Black Sheep this weekend (we are setting one up at Cafe Andiamo downtown this Sunday) before yesterday – and now we have decided to take on a last minute fun event in the record store this Saturday, March 18th (in just two days)! We have Chicago-based hardcore bands Bleeding Gums and Cohete had a show fall through elsewhere and now here we are to the rescue. Both bands will be performing inside the store at 7:30 pm and then a karaoke party will take place. We have a two microphone and laptop – projector setup for this. Stream some of Cohete’s brand new music on the player below. Bleeding Gums also played Dumb Fest last year on the big Rock N’ Roll Hardee’s stage.

The show will start inside Dumb Records promptly at 7:30 pm. We are asking for $3 for the touring acts. 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 this spring in Southtown.
