Horse Show Update

If you missed it on Facebook, the 1st baby of the Radon Lounge has been born! Charles Lloyd Black will preside on future Radon shows (maybe not in person until he’s old enough to handle the volume).

We’re ready to announce more bands for the Horse Show on June 21st, but first we wanted to mention we’re looking for sponsors. The Horse Show is free, but it would be really nice if some businesses or individuals would help subsidize the cost. We see this as an opportunity for more folks to get involved and be a part of the madness. We’re creating a nifty brochure to make this easy, but in the meantime hit us up if you would like to know more at

Now on to more band announcements! The following three bands are all Springfield local and will be appearing on the garage stage.

First of is Yogi Beara. These guys are the quintessential power duo with heavy garage rock and blues influences. Fans of the White Stripes and the Black Keys won’t want to miss these guys.

Next up is Full Chroma, a keyboard driven alternative rock band. These guys are also playing the April 14th Radon show @ the Black Sheep Cafe!

And lastly for today, we’re announcing local pop-punk favorite Negative 17. Fans of Green Day, Blink 182, Sum 41, etc, should definitely be there to hear these guys.

That’s it for now. We’ve have some more exciting lineup announcements up our sleeve that we can wait to tell you about.


April Show Announcement!

We’re hosting a show at our friends space, The Black Sheep Cafe.

We thought we were amazed by hosting a Canadian band earlier this year, now comes a show with bands from Spain and Sweden. Cue the horrible horrible Disney small world song.

Now that you have that in your head, may you be brought to life by this musical wonderland.


Let us know you’re coming on Facebook! We’ll talk about the bands in more depth later. For now, check out the facebook event page for more details!

Goodbye Meteor Pinball

For the last two shows, something decided to break on the Meteor pinball machine each time causing the machine to be down for the show. At the Radon, it’s 2 strikes and you’re out. Just kidding, but since we didn’t want to put any more money in that particular game it got sold to an arcade owner from Edwardsville today. Currently the Radon Arcade is basically one machine.

Jeff has 27 pounds left to lose on his pinball weight loss plan before we get the next one, what pinball do you want to see in the Radon next? Say Medieval Madness to give us a hearty chuckle. Let’s think within a certain amount of reason, this is a DIY venue after all.
