THE RADS ON FACEBOOK
We are in the fabulous "Shire" this weekend with a show at the Caringbah Hotel (Caringbah Inn)
Saturday night sees us in one of our favourite gigs in Sydney, where it is invariably crowded with loads of live music lovin' ,hard partying punters.( try saying that quickly!😄)...
We are certainly hoping that is the case again and we look forward to rockin this famous pub once more.
Things kick off with "Rogue Syndicate "around 9-ish so if you're thinking of coming, get there early and get into what is always an awesome vibe.
Hope to catch up with a heap of you guys n gals this Saturday night. Cheers, the Rads. ... See MoreSee Less

It was a full house at the Panthers Penrith, Evan Theatre on Friday evening. We say evening.. because we went on at the very early time of 8pm.
A great crowd for the 2 band bill Rads/ Mentals rocked up though unfortunately many were still coming in half way through our set. A lot of people indicated to us that they were unhappy with our early start but there wasn't much we could do about it as this was apparently how the club wanted it. So it was hard work to create a vibe and drag people from their seats so early. However we rocked on regardless and we eventually made something of the night.
A slow and steady trickle of people onto the floor ensured we finally ended up with something resembling a rock concert. Our thanks to everyone who came along to this excellent venue and supported both bands.
Saturday night saw us at the Heritage Hotel Bulli. Not a massive crowd but a very enthusiastic and welcoming one! What a great old venue dating back to the 1800's, it's been around nearly as long as the Radiators 😀.
A great in -house PA and top sounding stage ensured a really enjoyable night for the band. Thanks to all you guys n gals who fronted up and supported the Pubs' efforts in continually putting on live music. It's an awesome room and it was a fun gig and we are certainally hoping to be invited back maybe in the Summer to do it all again.
Cheers from The Rads. ... See MoreSee Less
Wendy SquiresIt was a shame you came on first, we were surprised but we loved you and hit the dance floor immediately, see you on RTB71 week ago · 2
Scott UsmanHate to say it but the evan theatre is not very good at promoting events, I saw Violent femmes there a little while ago and the crowd was disappointing, not to mention I found out off the violent Femmes facebook page they were playing there long before the people selling tickets even knew they were coming.1 week ago · 1
Chris AustinGood on you fellas! One of the hardest working Aussie bands ever still pumping away regardless of the ever dwindling Live Pub scene in Sydney.. absolute legends 👍1 week ago · 2
Linda NormanA great night as usual but how come you didn't play your full set or do an encore?? 😢😢😢😢1 week ago · 2

Michael GibbsI agree with others, Friday night was a great night but sadly missed an encore... Rock On !!!!1 week ago · 1
Peta PunkineataI'd phoned the club twice during the week and was told by "Emily" that Mentals were on first. Also another friend called and got the same answer. We stayed for the Mentals but geez.... *yawn*. Never again!! Silly crowd walked away and didn't even cheer for an encore. So they missed out. Then the guy packing up the leads grabbed our drinks and threw them out onto the dance floor because something HE DID got tangled up. The drinks were nowhere near "in the way". He just had a foul attitude and a bad temper. Apparently he works for panthers. There was plenty of room up the front. Can't believe they didn't sell "standing only" tickets instead of those silly mezzanine tickets. The people up there couldnt get access the merchandise either. Panthers = fail.1 week ago
Two gigs in a row is a tour these days...for just about any band! So from tomorrow the Rads are on tour.. Woohoo!
Tomorrow night we kick off at the magnificent Evan Theatre at Panthers Penrith. It's a double bill with fellow 80's luminaries, Mental as Anything. It's already sold heaps of tickets so it should be a great night,with more hits than the Pacquio/ Horn fight 😄.
The next night we wrap up the tour with a gig at the Heritage Hotel Bulli in Bulli. Another gig that we havn't done before, so we are really looking forward to this one and getting down the Gong area again.
Hope to see some of you folk out and about on the weekend.
Cheers and Beers (and a couple of Tequila shots..)

It was Thursday night but it felt like a Saturday night. A big crowd of around 400 turned up at the Mezz Bar for a dose of mid week live music. What a great club ! Very big, very new, very impressive. Easily rivals and surpasses many of the clubs in Sydney. A top music area called the "Mezz Bar", with two levels for the audience. A great view for them and a top sounding in - house PA and production for us.
Our thanks to everyone who turned up last night and gave the band a great reception. We had a big meet n' greet after the show as well, with lots of photos, selfies and stories and memories from gigs of yesteryear. There were even photos from Geoffs's old band "Twister" from around 1976! They were a blast. Two foot long hair and double denim! Aah the good old days..😄
Thanks also to the clubs' management for their hospitality. All in all a very good night and we hope that we can come back and do it all again in the not too distant future.
Cheers from the Rads. ... See MoreSee Less
Bruce CoxGreat show fellas. Brought back some great memories. Soon as I got there I could see the crowd were up for it .3 weeks ago · 1
Dean CassimatisI used to see Twister at Top Ryde in the 70s. They were usually the support act and were great. I remember Geoff's long hair and I think they covered some Status Quo songs. I also saw AC/DC there with Bon. $5 entry.3 weeks ago · 1
It's always great to play up in Newcastle way. So many top gigs over the years. This time we are venturing up to Wallsend to rock out the Diggers club. Another venue that we haven't played before, so we are really looking forward to this one.
We are booked to play in the Mezz Bar at Wallsend Diggers which is a cool name . ( is it on the mezzanine by any chance?).. We are there this THURSDAY NIGHT!! Not many places run a gig midweek these days, unlike the 80's when we used to play every night of the week.
So naturally, we are hoping that you locals are already aware of this and that Thursdays live music events are an already regular thing at the Mezz. Fingers crossed, we catch up with a heap of you rockin' Novocastrians tomorrow then.
Cheers , the Radiators. ... See MoreSee Less
