April, Round 2

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


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!

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.


Music, visual art and poetry is all present at this show. Speaking of poetry, we’re privelidged to be hearing some poems from Ian Winterbauer, who has even recently published his own book of poems.https://www.facebook.com/ianwritesbooks/


Our visual artist featured at this event is Jen Santarelli, aka Arty Farty Slumber Party. Jen’s artwork consists of geometrics, straight lines, and nifty buttons. Check out her art at this show and definitely visit her online store! Also the artwork for this show comes from one of her original paintings.


Springfield’s creative cooking project Copper Pot Cooking Studio will be bringing good home cooked food to share with everyone at the event. If you’re not familiar, Copper Pot provides cooking classes with folks of all ages here in Springfield.

So much to do in one event, just how we like it. Check out the facebook event at:




Horse Show Lineup Announcement #3

We’ve got another group of bands to announce for the 2016 Horse Show at Refuge Ranch on June 18th.


First up is St. George from St Louis. Soulful, folky, bluesy, jazzy, historical vibes. Some Radon fans may remember Jordan Bauer who performed at the 2014 Horse Show and a couple times at Radon basement shows. We’re excited to see this new project from Jordan and friends. They’ve just released their first recording, which you can check out here.

Also playing the Horse Show will be Il Neige, electro indie pop from Chicago. Her music feels of winter winds, snowflakes, and clear January nights, which is perfect for a Summer music fest.


Representing the Springfield metal scene will be Vacant Skies. This will actually be the last show for this band, so be sure not to miss. Influences include August Burns Red and Underoath.


Blind Social, a Springfield 3 piece will be here in force with their punk ‘n roll. This band played the 2014 Horse Show and a few basement shows at the Radon, excited to have them back.


And lastly Springfield band Stereo Static. These guys just recently killed in the basement this May. Stereo Static is an alternative rock band that fuses the dancey rhythms with clever lyrics and a bit of distortion.

That’s it for now, we have one more lineup announcement left and then we’ll just be counting the days until June 18th! Hop on the event page here.






Garden Party!

We’re super stoked to host our 2nd Garden Party!

We came up with the idea last year when trying to figure out how an August Radon Show would work. How can we distract people from how hot everything is to actually enjoy a show?

The Mailboxes

So once again we’re opening up the Radon Water Park, aka misting fan, to cool people off. Feel free to check out our veggie garden. We’re also making up some cold brew coffee to give away for free during the show along with popsicles! Not to mention the arcade!

On top of that we’re hosting some of the most fun bands we can think of. It’s been a long time since Mr Nasti from Fairfield Iowa has been by the Radon, but his last appearance was definitely one of our most memorable shows. Also we’re really excited to host The Mailboxes from Cleveland Tennessee. We got to see Mailboxes for the first time this year at AudioFeed and you don’t want to miss your chance now.

Blind Social

Two local bands fill out the show, Blind Social and Built In A day. Both bands have appeared before in various Open Mic nights and Blind Social played last year’s Horse Show. Both bands bring the rock.

Built In A Day

This show will be super rad, hope you can make it! Here is the Facebook event page.
