"Golden Girls, Conversion Party, and Radical Dads at Glasslands"

Radical Dads played last, going on around 11:30. They were the most likable band I’ve seen in a long time, personality-wise. They’re three completely unpretentious people (two of whom also play in Uninhabitable Mansion, one of whom also plays in Clap Your Hands Say Yeah) playing guitar-driven music that is fun and light, but very exciting at the same time. With no bass, the second guitarist gets creative with his riffs, switching back and forth between solos and complicated bass-like lower parts. Their singer has a great low voice, and her stage presence exudes competent confidence without any cockiness. The band’s last song was a guitar-psych freak out, which was incredibly entertaining and viscerally exciting. I’m so glad I found this band, and I’d like to encourage you to download their EP for free right here. - New York Rock Market

Radical Dads is three people who look quiet but like to be very, very loud. Most of our songs are about disaster, which is apparently all Lindsay thinks about. None of us are actually dads, but all of us were raised by radical ones. We like bands such as Sonic Youth, Sleater-Kinney, Dinosaur Jr., The Lilys, and Yo La Tengo. Also, we like guitars.
