Next Radon Lounge Show, May 7

17 Apr

We just had a really great Open Mic and are continuing our plans the Horse Show on June 18. But today we want to talk about our next Radon Lounge show on May 7.

youngeyes

We’re really excited to bring The Young Eyes, from Greenville, IL, a new band featuring members of Brian Lee & His Orchestra. You might remember us squeeing like little school girls in the past over Brian Lee, so you can have no doubt we’re excited about this new band.

Also on the show are The Locals, a Springfield band who have definitely become a common name to see popping up on Radon shows. They started on the scene by winning Black Sheep’s battle of the bands and last year won the Illinois Time’s pick for best underage band. They’re definitely just as rad as ever.

Stereo Static
, also of Springfield, are back from last November’s open mic. They just finished recording an EP and even have a tour under their belt. We’re excited to see where this band goes from here.

Feb 13 Radon Show!

3 Feb

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.

8 Sep

We had such a blast with the Garden Party, now it’s time to slow things down and contemplate the universe this September 19th.

samarias2

We’re super excited to bring the very talented Sam Arias over from Chicago. His multi-instrumental soulful jams about life will make you feel all over.

Also from Chicago is Qajaq (pronounced kayak) is bringing some sweet indie rock jams and some really big questions.

Also we’re excited to bring not one, but two post rock/ambient groove bands. Fel Fae is pretty new project headed up by Springfield’s Hannah Tolan. Also, Pretend I’m Not There is a fine new project from local good guy B.J. Pearce.

This will be a pretty chill show, perfect such listening room such as this, hope you can make it! We’ll have the usual free candy, free coffee, and bumpin’ arcades.

Garden Party!

15 Aug

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.

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.
