Radiation City is adding a second night, ALL-AGES show, at Polaris Hall on June 20th.  An added bonus for this evening is a special VIP package available for those that want the full experience with the band; a short intimate set, Q & A, signed merch item, and a little hang time prior to the night time show.
 
Radiation City was a lovely force, relentlessly touring, playing their guts out all over the US, Canada, Mexico, and EU for the 7 years they were a band. Their DIY approach led to lasting connections with those that listened and attended shows. Now after 7 years apart, and after much change in their lives and the lives of those that enjoyed their music, 4 of the members have decided they will play again and rekindle the magic they once created (and 2 of the members have also decided to get married).
 
To describe their music would be, and has always been, difficult. But to quote previous bios, “It's like your parents' record collection was aboard the Event Horizon…”, or, “… a time capsule has been discovered in a near post-apocalyptic future and this is the music you’d find inside…”
 
Radiation City formed in early 2010 with Cameron Spies (Night Heron) and Lizzy Ellison (Cardioid). Their first album, The Hands That Take You, was born out of this collaboration, and was self-recorded in Spies’ family cabin in Trout Lake, WA with the help and addition of third member, Randy Bemrose (Junkface). After a tape release under Spies/Ellison tape label, Apes Tapes, and a few well-received shows, RC was quickly swooped up by local record label, Tender Loving Empire, with a re-release of THTTY in 2011. With the record receiving promising hope from the indie world, 2 more members were added to the mix with Patti King (The Shins) and Matt Rafferty (The Shotgun). With the help of TLE, 2 more records followed: Cool Nightmare (2012) and Animals in the Median (2013), all self-recorded in living rooms, cabins, haciendas, farms, and grandparents' homes. More touring, festivals, collaborations, and long drives devoured their lives for the better part of 3 years. 2016 saw the final full-length from the band, Synesthetica, released with long-time indie label, Polyvinyl Records (recorded with John Vanderslice/mixed by Jeremy Sherrer). After creating many memories, albums, and relationships, the band decided to somewhat abruptly end in the fall of 2016 after a long national and European tour in support of Synesthetica. They have since put out music, CODA (2018) and a few pandemic singles, all with Polyvinyl, and all recorded before the band had parted ways.
