Hey! It’s been a long time coming, but here is the final announcement and wave of bands for Dumb Fest 5 happening June 9th, 10th, and 11th right here in Springfield. It’s not even a full ten bands! GEEZ! Are we dropping the ball here or what! In addition to this sad excuse for full band announcement, we have to bring you news that Acrylics and Undone are both no longer performing at the fest. 😥 Today we only have six bands to announce:
LUMPY & THE DUMPERS (St. Louis, MO)
BLEEDING GUMS (Chicago, IL)
SQUELCH (Little Rock, AR)
FETISH (Houston, TX)
SPELL BREAKER (Springfield)
STATUES OF THE DEAD (Springfield)
Stream the demo from the hot new Little Rock band SQUELCH on the player below. And we are working on updating our Dumb Fe5t page on our site and also the Dumb Fe5t facebook event with all of those bands ASAP!
Are you ready to hear about the next show happening inside Dumb Records? It is coming up quick, happening in just ten days on Wednesday, May 17th. This one will feature noise rock / sludge group “Pussyfoot” coming from Chicago. Can we say that name on the radio? Not sure. You can stream some of Pussyfoot’s music on the player below. In addition to them we do also have two hit Springfield bands. This includes the incredibly hard hardcore band GRINN. Smile! Also opening things up is the new hit sensational wizardly act Spell Breaker, featuring members of SAP and Lincoln’s Tomb.
Check it out, this show will be happening inside the store at 7:00 pm and admission is $5. Find a facebook event for this one right here. Also be sure to check out our shows page for Black Sheep and all of Southtown right here.
For the past three or four years we have been happy to team up with downtown bar Bar None (located at 245 S 5th street) with our annual cover show to offer this town and the 21 and up crowd a second performance of all of the acts. This year we got a little behind on picking out a date, but we are making things work over at Bar None for a second cover show on Thursday, May 18th! Don’t forget the Black Sheep Cover Show is now less than one week away and is still happening on Saturday, May 13th. The lineup for both shows is looking like it will be the exact same and goes as follows:
Livin’ Thing will be performing as Black Sabbath
Milestshirtsdotcom will be performing as Weezer
Gutterpriest will be performing as Divine
Nice! That one will start promptly at 9:00 over at Bar None (let’s say doors at 8:30 pm)? This one is ages 21 and up and admission is $5. Check out a facebook event for the Bar None show right here. Also be sure to check out our Springfield shows page for a list of shows happening in town outside of Black Sheep.
