THE RADS ON FACEBOOK
"And they're racing !!"...a bit of an unusual venue for the band on Saturday...Doomben racecourse in Brisbane. A bit of an unusual time as well. We hit the open air stage at 4.30 in the arvo, which is after the last race. Not sure what the special occasion is but we have heard it's "Blokes' Day"?..are you allowed to celebrate that these days ??..
Whatever the celebration we are hoping for an equal turn out of "fillies" for the event and that we are blessed with some great Qld Autumn weather.
It's a bit of a short notice gig for us but we were rapt to be asked to perform at this famous venue, and had no hesitation in saying yes.
Looking forward to Saturday, so place your bets now that the band will be in fine form and put in a winning performance (are there any cliches we've left out ?😄😄)
cheers, The Rads. ... See MoreSee Less
Looking forward to Sunday's gig with Kings of the Sun at The Coolangatta Hotel I've been a fan since seeing them in the 80s up at Kings Cross and will be there early to catch there set .. Cliff is a great drummer who has similar influences as I do so make sure you're in early to catch 'em

Happy Easter everybody. Hope the Easter Bunny has been to your place and you are all now gorging on chocolate. (At least for today we all have an exuse)...
Thanks to all who came along last night to the Ettalong Diggers Club. It was a bloody big crowd, so we thought it would be a lot of holiday makers up from Sydney enjoying a bit of R&R.
After we gave out the call last night asking the audience who was on holidays and who were locals, it was a massive locals show of hands!
So once again thanks to the good people of the Central Coast for your support . It was a good vibe in the room with everyone in party mode. We got to crack a few off colour Easter jokes as well, including our perennial .." On Good Friday the band were in Sydney, so we decided to go up to the Cross and get nailed !" .(why are we never asked to perform at Hillsong ??) We also posed the question to the crowd " If Wagga Wagga is always just called Wagga... Why isn't Woy Woy just called Woy??...hmmm thought provoking.
It was a fun night and the band went over a storm. Thanks again folks for making a night with the Rads a little bit of your long weekend festivities. Cheers from The Radiators. ... See MoreSee Less

Brisbane Gigs This Weekend (22 and 23 April)
Saturday Afternoon - Doomben Racecourse
Sunday Afternoon - Coolangatta Hotel ... See MoreSee Less
Hi folks, we are back on the Central Coast this weekend with a show at the Ettalong Diggers Club. It's the Easter weekend, so we are hoping for a good roll up and mix of locals and happy holiday makers.
It's a great venue and we had a fantastic reception when we last played there, must be around two years ago?...
The extra long weekend allows for everyone to rip in on Saturday night.. and still have plenty of recovery time ! So the call is "Get along to Ettalong".
Looking forward to seeing a few of you out and about and ready to rip and tear this Saturday.
Happy Easter to all.
Cheers, beers and chocky eggs

Once again The Drunken Drummers prove to the world their ability to redefine the work of another band. This time its the rock classic 'Out Of It' from Aussie...
Brett TurnerThere is a possibility that there is a chance, that this cover version could very well be the finest cover version performed by any band and any song. PS. Almost stuck my hand into the ceiling fan when I struck a huge rock pose while air-guitaring to this video.2 weeks ago
