13-09-2017 12:00:00 13-09-2017 12:00:00 America/New_York The Rad Trads | 9:00 PM When The Rad Trads formed in the Spring of 2012, they were meeting each other in New York City's East Village for the first time… transplants from Chicago, Portland, and Washington D.C. looking to play with the best musicians they could find. Their horns, guitars, drums and love for the classics like The Band, Allen Toussaint and Dr. John brought them together. And of course, beer. Making rent playing 4 hour gigs in every bar and beer hall that would have them, the guys dominated New York City and Brooklyn with their punk-rock energy and showmanship, so they decided to take their show on the road. Almost 5 years later, the Rad Trads have played on 4 Continents, headlining tours and opening for acts such as Tom Jones, Lake Street Dive, Charles Bradley, Buddy Guy, Taj Mahal, Margaret Glaspy, The Lone Bellow, and Con Brio. They have toured Europe seven times, and played in 15 countries and 32 U.S. States. Following the release of their first full length album (Must We Call Them Rad Trads - Dala Records) in May 2016, the band is slated to release their second LP of original music soon. Members of The Rad Trads have performed or recorded with St. Paul & the Broken Bones, Deer Tick, Lee Fields & The Expressions, Jon Batiste & Stay Human, Sarah Jarosz, Christopher Paul Stelling, David Duchovny, Lenny Pickett, Red Baraat as well as leading their own bands. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=249889 Rockwood Music Hall Rockwood Music Hall
