The Radon Lounge is a little  hole in the ground in 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 to give more people a chance to perform. We support live local DIY music in Springfield such as what happens at the Black Sheep Cafe record store Dumb Records, and a new huge central Illinois music fest AudioFeed.

The Radon Lounge is owned and operated by Jeff and Cat 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.

Check out all of our past shows!

For booking inquiries, contact us at radonlounge@gmail.com or message us at facebook.com/radonlounge

We have a PA and FOH sound tech on hand for shows.

Please leave your drugs and alcohol at home so we can be friends.

Ask someone who’s been, or message us for the address.

Plenty of street parking available.

Unfortunately we’re not very handicap accessible, lots of stairs.

    Uh oh. Basement? What’s the wheelchair accessibility like?

    • radonlounge November 12, 2013 at 4:35 pm #

      Unfortunately not good, there are about 5-6 steps going down to the basement with a smaller than standard doorway, and then you have to go up a staircase to go to the bathroom. Maybe someday we’ll have a real venue with wheelchair accessibility, we’ll keep dreaming for now.

    First of all I want to say superrb blog!
    I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I waas interested to find out how you center
    yourself and clear your mind before writing.
    I’ve had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any suggestions or tips? Many thanks!

    My 14 year old son is a diehard Johnny Cash fan. Would this be something he and I could go to? I am in my 40s.

    How about an address and hours on your website, on your Facebook page, on your promotional fliers? Maybe a listing in the Illinois Times Pub Crawl?

  8. JR April 9, 2015 at 9:30 pm #

    But where? No address her nor Facebook page.
