Be Here 2/28

23 Feb

This Saturday we’re excited to be hosting another super great show at the Radon Lounge.

vonstrantz

Our friends Von Strantz are back. There have been some lineup change since the last time they were here. Von Strantz is now a 2 piece, both Jess and Kelsey are accomplished multi-instrumentalists bringing that great indie folk we know and love about this band. They have been working hard in the past year, releasing 3 EPs in a series which make up their new album “Narratives”. You can check out and buy their EPs and the new album on their bandcamp site. You can also listen here:

otis

Otis The Destroyer is on tour from Austin, TX. Otis has been making an impact in their very crowded Austin scene with their experimental psych indie rock. In the past year they have had the pleasure of opening for Bob Mould (Hüsker Dü) as well as garner some press from SXSW. They’re currently working on their first full length. Hear their current EP on their bandcamp here:

Also on the show is Springfield local indie rock band, The Locals. So far they have performed at a couple of our cover nights and was also a winner at Black Sheep Cafe’s battle of the bands. These guys are definitely off to a good start. You can see a video of one of their performances here: https://vimeo.com/116467979

Opening the show will be Rella, the lo-fi acoustic project of Clare Frachey, lead singer from local punk band SAP. She has one song recorded you can check out here:

You may remember Saudades as being one of our favorite discoveries from last year. Jetpacks is also a local favorite with their video game cover tunes. Cross Culture is a brand new band formed by Bonnie Pocklington and members of Fox Cage, who have played many of our recent Open Mics and Cover Nights.
