All Ages 5-9pm
$10 Adv / $12 day of show
The Frights’ birth in December 2012, was an accident that now unites moms worldwide. One mom in San Diego has called the band, “Great! A fun mix of the rock n’ roll I used to love with the 50’s sounds MY mom used to love!” Another mom in Los Angeles praises the band, saying, “I hire a babysitter to go to all their shows. They just have so much youthful energy, they make me feel young too!”
Moms everywhere enjoy the band’s two self-produced EPs, their one full-length record, and even their split EP and singles, embarrassing their sons and daughters with their enthusiasm toward a band that is at least half, sometimes a third, of their age. Some of their most popular songs among moms include “Beach Porn,” “Crust Bucket,” and “Makeout Point.”
Ostensibly, The Frights are great for long drives in a Honda Odyssey. Their second full-length was produced by FIDLAR’s Zac Carper and will be released soon.
Radkey consists of three home-schooled brothers from St. Joseph, Missouri. Isaiah Radke (bass), Solomon Radke (drums), and Dee Radke (lead vocals and guitar), formed their family-titled band in 2010, and played their first show in 2011 when they opened for Fishbone. With their dad, Matt Radke, as their manager, they have since played with the likes of The Offspring, Local H, Black Joe Lewis, Titus Andronicus and performed at festivals like SXSW, Riot Fest, Afropunk, the U.K.’s Download Festival and Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. They have released two EPs since their inception: 2012’s Cat & Mouse with Adrian Grenier’s Wreckroom Records and 2013’s Devil Fruit on Little Man Records. The band worked with Ross Orton (Arctic Monkeys, Drenge) to release their latest single, “Feed My Brain” and the team released their debut LP Dark Black Makeup in August 2015
