The Radon Archive

17 Nov

Remember that one show with that one band? Was it this year or last year?

If you have those thoughts, we created a page just for you!

TWINPEAKSRADON1Now you can go to the new Past Shows page to check out all of our 38 shows. We’ve listed the bands, posted the flier image (if we could find it), and even the facebook event page.

A link to this page will appear on our schedule and about pages.

The Horse ShowThis seemed timely as the Radon will be 3 years old this December. It was fun remembering special moments from each show as we were gathering all the info. We’ve been doing this for so long, we forgot when we held our first show, June 30th 2011! As always, we have no idea how much longer we’ll keep doing this, but we also can’t fathom NOT doing it. Here’s hoping for many more years of Radon!

For those of you who really need to know everything, we’ve also recently updated the Horse Show and AudioFeed pages on this site with new information for 2015. No lineup announcements yet for either fest, but we do have some dates posted.

When Christmas Explodes

11 Nov

We’re looking ahead to December, and our last show for 2014. We’re celebrating 3 years of Radon on Dec 6th with our annual Christmas Explosion. The idea is Christmas is exploding, all over the house. Starting at 6pm, 3 levels of awesome. An open format Open Mic in the basement, potluck on the first floor, and a Wii hooked up to a projector with Smash Bros. loaded on floor #2

Send us a message if you want to perform at the Open Mic, 15 minutes of doing whatever you want. Doesn’t have to be Christmas or music.

FREE cover, but Please bring a dish or dessert, and a donation for future Radon upgrades if you’re feeling really generous.

We’ve got a lot of pretty packages to give away all night long, everyone will be going home with something!

Cash Cover Night, This Saturday

21 Oct

Our friend Chase Abner helps us out by running these cover nights, it helps to spread the load a bit. So far we’ve done Bob Dylan and The Beatles and they’ve been a lot of fun. Chase wanted to say a few words about Johnny Cash, so here’s Chase:

You want to know what’s special about the next cover night at the Radon Lounge?

My favorite country artist is __________.
My favorite folk artist is ___________.
My favorite rock n roll artist is ___________.
My favorite singer/songwriter is ___________.
My favorite gospel singer is _____________.

You could put Johnny Cash’s name in any and all of those blanks and few people would bat an eye at you. He was a prolific musician and had more artistic integrity than most of the industry. In fact, in the 1980s, that purity won him disinterest from Columbia Records and most of the Nashville scene. But he kept going. He had to. And with the help of Rick Rubin, produced some of his finest work with the American Recordings.

johnny_cash_classic_photo_with_a_cigarStill, most of Cash’s recordings are country music. I wouldn’t argue against that. It’s a lot of acoustic and steel guitar, fiddles, and the “boom-chicka-boom-chicka-boom” of the bass and a trap kit…. But something purer than genre comes through in the songs and people just connect with it.

It’s the honesty. It’s the grit. It’s the heart.
imagesJohnny Cash said it best himself:

“I love songs about horses, railroads, land, Judgment Day, family, hard times, whiskey, courtship, marriage, adultery, separation, murder, war, prison, rambling, damnation, home, salvation, death, pride, humor, piety, rebellion, patriotism, larceny, determination, tragedy, rowdiness, heartbreak and love. And Mother. And God.”

There’s a little something there for everybody. And there will be a little something for everybody next Saturday at the Radon.

November Show Announcement!

18 Oct

The Johnny Case Cover night is a week from now! We’re also excited to be hosting a super chill musical evening with touring musician folks Lauryn Peacock and Rusty Vining on November 8th. Local Radon vet David Lasley will be opening the show. We’ll talk more about this show later on, but just wanted to make sure you knew it was coming.

Nov2014showflierWe almost captured Beards, but they slipped away. We’ll be sure to get a bigger net next time.

This October, Cash Cover Night!

2 Oct

October 25th will be our next show, and it will be a cover night! These things are getting very popular as folks enjoy coming out and playing songs by their music heros. So far we have covered Bob Dylan and the Beatles. Cash seemed the obvious next step.

If you want to perform, be sure to sign up ASAP, as spots are filling up. Go on over to the facebook event page for more details.

The Cash Cover Night has a free cover. We also would really appreciate your donations as we’re hoping to do some sound and ambiance upgrades to the Radon over the next year, but don’t have the budget to do it.
