Hey folks, we have a really fun summer show comin’ right atcha this Sunday, July 14th!
First off we wanted to tell you about Lowder.
If you’ve been living under a rock in Springfield, you might not know Josie Lowder is probably the best female blues singer in Springfield, and was a contestant on American Idol. She will be performing with her brother Bo and other really talented musicians in her band formally known as the Josie Lowder Band, recently shortened to Lowder. They will bring you the perfect blend of Psychadelic, Rock, RNB, Funk, Reggae, Jazz, and Tribal styles. Be sure to lookup Lowder on facebook!
Sandwiched in the middle of the show between two of Springfield’s best rock ‘n roll bands is Lapland. Those who remember our show with Lucius and Tall Tall Trees will be delighted to know that Lapland, or Josh Mease is another member of that Brooklyn, NY scene. Josh Mease has received praise from many note worthy purveyor’s of fine music such as the New York Times, Paste Magazine, and NPR’s All Songs Considered. Bringing the Wanderland to the land of Lincoln Josh has always found comfort in the solitude of his own thoughts, often preferring the landscapes within his mind’s eye over the bustle of the city that surrounds him. So it seems fitting that in making Lapland’s self-titled debut, he worked alone using whatever was within reach – only rarely using other musicians. Josh Mease has received praise from many note worthy purveyor’s of fine music such as the New York Times, Paste Magazine, and NPR’s All Songs Considered.
You can learn more about Lapland, and listen to their tunes here.
Opening the show is local Springfield feel good band Big Storm. Fronted by the legendary Brandon Carnes, and filled out by some of the hardest working musicians in the local scene, Big Storm can barely contain the energy bursting forth. Inspirations for Big Storm include Jellyfish, fun, The Format, Queen, and Pinkerton. You definitely don’t want arrive late and miss these guys.
During this show you’ll get to see the new look of the Radon stage for the first time. Also we’ll be peddling frozen treats and ice coffee, and we’ll even have some local artists with their work for sale. Check out the facebook event and bring your friends! Shows can only work if folks come to see them, maybe why they’re call shows?
As mentioned before, this is the last regular Radon Lounge show until September. We’re taking a break, but we already have shows in the works for the fall!
