July 14th at Dumb Records: Holy Pinto, Isaac Arms, Bernie Flesch, Marble Teeth, Kate Ridge


Are you ready for our next show happening inside Dumb Records? Well, there actually is a hip hop show happening there this Sunday at 3:00 pm – find out more about that one right here. But there’s even now another one happening one week from tomorrow on Saturday, July 14th! That one is going to be mostly acoustic acts. For this one we have a group returning from the UK called “Holy Pinto” – they had performed up in Southtown Studio when that was active under Brandon Carnes a few years back. Stream some Holy Pinto beans on the player embedded below. Up before that is our good friend Isaac Arms of Heirship Records performing some tunes. Also on deck is Bernie Flesch, our other good friend from Bar None. Hi Bernie! We also have an act lined up called “Marble Teeth” from Decatur. Who’s that? Is that the guy from the band Spooky Poo? Who knows! Opening things up looks like we have Kate Ridge, who recently recorded some material up in Southtown Sound on the way soon.

This show starts in the record store at 7:00 pm that night. Admission we are asking $5-7 to go towards the touring act. Find 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 in Southtown this summer.
