We’re less than a week away from our next show, but after that you can start looking forward to the next show!
We’re happy to bring Maks The Fox from Chicago, The Saudades from Cincinnati and local bands Like… With Jetpacks and Cross Culture.
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.
Radon shows are currently on hiatus until April, but that doesn’t mean we’re just testing out our camera for the oncoming storm of baby pictures.
April and May show booking is still in the works, not quite ready to announce those, but we can give you 3 more Horse Show bands!
As mentioned before, get all the info, including the announced lineup thus far, on the Festivals tab of this page.
Also if you or anyone you know may be interested in sponsoring or donating to this fest, we would be glad to talk to you. We have posted paypal donation links on this website to make donating super easy.
First up we have local Springfield scummy punk band Soap Scum for the garage stage.
Soap Scum is that stubborn creamy glaze that coats your shower walls and tub. It’s extremely hard to clean because it’s made up of different things like mildew, mineral deposits, hard water, soap talc and body oils. There are several techniques for getting rid of this multifarious sludge, but prevention is key. Members are Mario Soap, Cory Soap, Brian Soap and Kevin Scum.
Next up we have two for the barn stage, starting with a brand new discovery we’re really excited to see, The Saudades!
The Saudades, from Cincinati, OH, in their own words bring “catchy bass lines and playful melodies, the group lives up to it’s namesake and lingers in the mind of the listener.” We’ve definitely fallen for their catchy tunes, and look forward to hearing more than just the two tunes posted on their bandcamp page. For those who like comparisons, this band can be seen as similar to Camera Obscura and The Dirty Projectors.
Our last performer to be announced today is a friend of the Radon before the Radon existed. David Lasley is an inspiration, as long as he doesn’t shave his beard. With family committments, David hasn’t had much of a chance to perform many shows, but does have a full recorded album to his name. Here is a pic of him performing with his Dad at the recent Beatles Cover Night at the Radon Lounge.
That’s it for now, we’re looking at 19-21 bands right now for the Horse Show, so there will be plenty more announcements to be make!
