RD / CMJ / FAQ

October 21st, 2014

Will the band/LLC Radical Dads be playing at NYC’s storied CMJ Music Marathon in 2014?
Yes, the band/LLC will be! Thank you for your interest!

On what dates will the band be playing? Be specific!
Thanks for your question! The first date on which the band will be playing music for the legendary CMJ Musical Marathon is the date of October 22, 2014, at 7pm at Pianos Upstairs. It is entirely free. The second date on which the band will be playing (music, again) for the hallowed Music Marathon put on by CMJ is October 25, 2014 at 9pm at Leftfield. It is free with a badge from the famous CMJ Marathon, or $8 without. Again, great question.

Is it possible that both of these shows are taking place in/on New York City’s world-renowned Lower East Side?
It is entirely possible, and thanks for asking — we really appreciate it.

If I come to these shows, i.e., if I am in the crowd and/or part of the audience, what other illustrious NYC bands might I encounter, visually and also audibly?
Dead Stars, Shark?, The Teen Age, EULA, Lost Boy?, U2, Green Day, Coldplay, and the list goes on. Please let us know if we can help in any other way.

Are there links I can click on, yes or no?
Yes.

Next question: what are the links?
Wednesday link for clicking upon >
Saturday link that begs you to do the dirty deed of clicking >

So does the marathon go through all five boros? Where is the best place to stand in order to cheer and ring this here cowbell?
Such a thoughtful question! Let us tell you that yes, the five boros, yes, every single one, from the top to the bottom, from Southern Albany down to Northern Boca Raton, every nook and every cranny of every boro. And as for standing, what a solid question, and as regards the cowbell, we were hoping someone would ask, we have to recommend: at the front. The very front of it all.

Cassette Brain

October 8th, 2014


Your cassette brain can’t be recorded over

October 4th, 2014

Dearest frontal lobes,

Due to heavy mind fog we almost forgot to send you this very important communication about what’s happening this weekend, which would have been a certified bummer due to the fact that we enjoy corresponding with you, partly because it’s a welcome breather from writing futile missives to leading amplifier manufacturers requesting that they design for us a pro model that is both loud (for your ears) and light (for our backs).

And so the important thing is that tonight, Saturday, October 4th, we are hosting a release party for our new cassette, redundantly named “Cassette Brain,” at Muchmore’s in Brooklyn. Joining us are The Suzan, Red Sneakers (from Japan!!!), and Quiet Down.
All info, all details >>>

We will gladly and greedily sell you our new tape at the show, but if you cannot attend for whatever sketchy reason, you can also buy it here >>>

Thanks for your support as we hide among the clouds of this mental weather. Also do let us know your thoughts on the pro model. We’re thinking red knobs. Red knobs are the coolest, right?

Listen to our new song “In The Water”

September 22nd, 2014

Big thanks to Impose Magazine for premiering it.


Obtain our tape

Hello fans of sports,

It’s that time again! The latest American football season has like a reluctant testicle finally descended and we are so pleased that grown men are once again crunching each other’s brains to bits before berating each other in the locker room, all just a warm-up for the nefarious acts committed during personal free moments.

Just kidding! It’s actually a different time! Time for a new music release! We have for your consideration a NEW TAPE called Cassette Brain, released on Old Flame Records. It contains four new songs, three old pictures, and it’s just four bucks. Obtain the tape now >>>

To hear a song from this tape, specifically the song “In The Water,” go to Impose Magazine >>>

To hear us play songs from the tape, come to Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn this Saturday 9/20. We will submit a raw and unhinged performance on account of the night being the release party for the new album by Backwords, a band whose jangle, soul, and lilt are a satisfying rejoinder to this autumn of endorsed brutality. We’re on at 9pm.

Address complaints and reserve a thing here >>>

We hope to see you in the stands! Just kidding there are no stands! But you should still make a funny sign and maybe you’ll be on TV! Just kidding there will be no TV cameras there! But all kidding aside make sure to buy our new tape!

All right all right all right

August 21st, 2014

Dear peopled vessels,

So this is yet another one of those emails that exhorts you to attend a particular thing with no regard for how tired you are, how many nights you’ve already been out this week, and how sometimes what you really need is a quiet evening at home with a glass of Pinot in your hand and a heating pad draped over your face.

And so knowing you probably receive quite a few of these emails every week (hopefully not from too many other bands because it seems like things are going pretty well between us and we were thinking of inviting your parents over for Thanksgiving this year), we just want to say “It’s OK.” If you can’t come. If you can’t make it. If you’d really like to, but, you know.

The fact of the matter is, we’re just glad to have someone to write to. The music is secondary at this point. Firstmost is the socializing. The fact that we even have people to socialize with. It’s not the music. It’s not the art. The achievement in our opinion is in having someone who owns a shoulder and who permits us to cry upon it. And right now the crying is to this particular end:

This Sunday (8/24) we are playing a show at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn, NY. The Williamsburg part of it. We are playing with SW/MM/NG and LA Font, and we go on first, so around 8:30pm.

Click this hot-ass link to learn more >>

We hope to see you there, but as we mentioned, what truly matters is that you’re here now, allowing us to lay our heavy emotional shit on you. Thanks.

FRIENDS FIRST. BANDMATES SECOND. RADICAL DADS.

July 20th, 2014

In this captivating video, catch glimpses of yachts, Chris’ Croakies, and Lindsay’s favorite Ovlov t-shirt. Baeblemusic, thanks for pushing us to come up with our band motto “Friends First. Bandmates Second.” and for the misty/mystical good times at the Brooklyn Half Marathon.


Fried clams

June 24th, 2014

Hey seafood lovers,

We are playing a show. Before you ask, there will not be fried clams at the show. But, if you look closely at the word “fried,” you may notice the letters “fri,” which indicate that the show is on a Friday. In fact, the show is this Friday, June 27.

As for the clams, well, it will cost you a few of them to get in. In addition, the show is at Muchmore’s in Brooklyn, which is interesting because clams are in fact much more delicious than other foods.

Also, for one night only, as a special bonus, we will refer our entire setlist as “a nice heavy bucket of fried clams.” And with bands such as Anchor 3, Shark?, and Vomitface also on the bill, the evening is sure to be a real clusterclam.

Read several details here >>>

We hope to see you there!
