It’s gonna be May

27 Apr

Back with the Radon Lounge was a wee lil baby, we hosted this band called Listener and folks drove from all around to see. It was our first full house show.

Listener @ Radon 2012

Now 5 years later we’re doing it again! It’s been great getting to know these guys over the years between sets of Red Sweater Lullaby, that Christmas show, and AudioFeed. Listener is coming back on May 16th and there’s rumblings about a new album in the works. If you haven’t had a chance yet, this is your best chance to hear the world’s best talk music.

Also on the show is Jeff Williams of the local legendary punk band NIL8. Jeff will be playing solo for this show as well as doubling as our featured visual artist.

This will also be the first performance of brand new band Layers, who is Aubrey Puyear (Honey/Suck) and Bloo Parks (Pryss).

Also during the show, enjoy snacks from Milk & Honey Fresh Market, our favorite downtown Springfield grocer.

Hope to see you! Here’s the facebook event. This may be our last basement show until the fall as we’ll be busy with AudioFeed and taking time for family trips this summer.

April, Round 2

5 Apr

We’re making sure this April is extra good with 2 shows! This doesn’t happen often.

bonesetters

On April 15th, we’re excited to host Bonesetters from Indianapolis. Self proclaimed surf-pop band whose most recent achievements include being listed in the Indianapolis Star as one of “Ten Indiana Bands You Should be Listening to Right Now”, and their song SAVAGES featured in the Indianapolis Motor Speedway announcement for the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500 in 2016.

Local Springfield rockers Blind Social are finally back once again at the Radon Lounge. One thing that strikes us about this band is thinking about what it might be like if certain classic rock bands were starting today with today’s sensibilities, what might they sound like? Perhaps this is it. Plus judging from recent pictures, they have the hair to boot! Rumors are they’re working up some new songs, can’t wait to hear them at this show!

eric marvel
Also on the show is the long overdue appearance of Eric Marvel. Some longtime followers of Radon may remember a local electronic band Luzhin Defense. Eric is one half of that band, striking out on his own. Springfield is definitely heavy on americana and country but certainly light on electronic music, but if that’s what you’re after, then this is where you need to be.
