Radiotones frontman Dave Arcari
Just back from the prestigeous South By South-West Festival in Austin, Texas, the Radiotones make sure that our 2008 Arts Programme hits the ground running. The first half of the gig will feature an acoustic set by front man Dave Arcari (nominated for best solo act in the 2008 Indy Music Awards); the second half an electric set by the Radiotones.
Groundbreaking alt.blues that owes as much to punk, rockabilly and trash country as it does to pre-war Delta blues (Mojo)
