The Radon Lounge is a little hole in the ground of Springfield, Illinois that hosts unique live basement performances, feeds and houses up-and-coming touring bands, and encourages the local scene. We host a wide variety of genres, but we are primarily an indie music venue. Think Daytrotter, AudioTree, and NPR’s All Songs Considered. It seems if you’re a fan of this kind of music, you have to travel far away from Springfield to see it. We decided it’s possible to bring indie to Springfield.
We usually host one show a month, and also hold open mics and cover shows to give more people a chance to perform. We also host a one day summer music fest called the Horse Show at Refuge Ranch. And we support the only other local DIY all ages venue Black Sheep Cafe, new local record store Dumb Records, and a new huge central Illinois music fest AudioFeed.
The Radon Lounge is owned and operated by Jeff and Cat Black with lots of help from an awesome community of volunteers. We are happy to say we are an all ages venue, and enjoy the fact our audiences are thoroughly diverse from teens to teen-havers. We always attempt to put on a show that pretty much anyone can enjoy.
