Karaoke Night Tonight at Dumb Records + Bleeding Gums and Cohete


It’s time to get that dusty old karaoke machine up and running (for the first time) at Dumb Records tonight because we are trying new things and hosting a karaoke night, oh boy! We are kicking things off tonight in the record store with two touring bands, and then getting into the karaoke. Those bands are Bleeding Gums and Cohete from Chicago- both bringing the rock n’ roll and punk. Check out Cohete’s brand new tour tape on the player embedded below. Then after that we are going to dive into the karaoke which will be on a projector screen in the store. Anything goes, and anyone is welcome to participate.

Tonight inside Dumb Records starts at 7:30 pm. We are asking for $3 for the touring acts. Check out a facebook event for the show right here. Also be sure to check out our shows page for a look at everything coming up in Southtown this spring.
