So while planning the next Radon Show, we found we were completely detached from reality and booked the same night as the Super Bowl, oops.
But, that won’t negate the fact we have an awesome show planned out. We’ve got just about everything happening at this Super Bowl party, including our new friend Emma Wilson baking cookies for everybody! you’ll just need to bring your own Super Bowl.
We’re really excited to have our friends Von Strantz back once again. Word on the street is they’ll be playing some new tunes! If you still have yet to hear these sweet Nashville soul sisters, then hopefully this will be your chance to right that wrong.
Also on the show will be David Rokos, singer-songwriter from Chicago. David recently released a new album, his 10th overall release, and 2nd solo release, “When You Were Her” finds Rokos hitting his stride as a songwriter with 8 songs that flow effortlessly between catchy pop-punk anthems in the vein of his band Get Well Cards and intimate acoustic stories.
This will be the first Radon show for local Springfield rock and roll band The Good Companions. This 3-piece founded in 2014 out of a mutual love of good song craft and honest live performance.
Arlin Peebles will be here for another Radon Lounge show. Arlin is Studio Show famous here in Springfield, after appearing on the popular local web series multiple times. When not trying his hand at acting, fathering, working, he’s also quite an accomplished singer-songwriter.
After the show we can score up the points to see who becomes the new reigning champion of the competition and who go home as weeping losers, just like all Radon Lounge shows! All shout and all dance as the Super Bowl is here!

Finally, we’re ready to start telling you who will be playing Horse Show 2016. We want to spread these announcements out so we can tell you a little bit about each band while we do it. As with all Radon shows, you can expect an eclectic lineup.
First up we’re really excited to bring in Keyoung, spoken word artist from Columbus OH. A favorite at Cornerstone and AudioFeed, Keyoung is working on a new album and we think the best way to describe what he does is to just watch the following video.
Also we’re excited to have Trouper come hang with us. From Mansfield, OH, Trouper describes their sound as Alternative Electropop Rock. They killed it last year at AudioFeed and we’re excited to bring to Springfield.
The Horse Show, just like most Radon shows, is a balanced mix of local artists and folks from out of town. So first up representing the Springfield area is The Locals. These indie rock guys are definitely becoming a pretty regular band to see on Radon lineups, but that’s just because they’re that good.
Also from Springfield is singer-songwriter Arlin Peebles of Studio Show fame. We’re excited to have him back once again for another Radon show.
And last up for this announcement is duo Bonnie and Lance. They’ve been playing our open mics and it just makes sense to have them around, especially as Bonnie is one of the mentors at Refuge Ranch. It’s great including artists from the Ranch itself in the show!
That’s all for now. Expect more announcements in the coming weeks! Look for the Horse Show facebook event here.
In less than 2 weeks we’re having another Radon Lounge show. This time it’s packed full of the best of Springfield’s folk and Americana flavored bands.
The Hollow Ends (St Louis, MO) is fleeting tempos, pounding drums and a distorted hollow-body guitar, focusing the energy and function of punk and rock through the lens of roots/Americana
Amy Benton is our local country sweatheart. She works hard around town and has opened all kinds of big city country/roots/americana acts passing through. This will be her first time in the basement, trading that fresh country air for the magical ionizing radiation we all know and love.
The Deep Hollow are also stopping in tonight. These guys are pretty much a Springfield supergroup of talented, harmonizing folk. They’ve recently won the American Songwriter 30th Anniversary Song Contest and are working on a new album.
Also on this show is Arlin Peebles of The Studio Show. When he’s not hosting Springfield’s hottest new talk show, he’s strumming guitar and singing tunes.
Rumor has it The Studio Show
may be here to record some bits for their really great locally produced talk show. We’re a big fan of this project that showcases local creative talent.
