Live Bands

Radkey, Outercourse, ÆGES

When: Fri., June 23, 8 p.m. 2017

It’s sort of surprising to learn that that a band as unapologetically loud and heavy as Radkey is made up of just three dudes. The band’s members are actually brothers — Isaiah, Solomon and Dee Radke — hailing from St. Joseph, Missouri, which isn’t exactly the first place you’d expect to yield such down-and-dirty garage rock. Listening to the band’s most recent LP, last year’s aptly named Delicious Rock Noise, you might be inspired to start mentally cataloguing all their possible influences: “Dark Black Makeup” is a hook-heavy anthem built upon the intersection where Thin Lizzy and KISS meet, “Le Song” is a two-minute burst of Misfits-esque punk, and “Marvel” tips its superhero-obsessed hat to early grunge and post-rock.
