It's high-energy, remarkably nuanced rock for a trio of kids not even old enough to hang out at many of the venues they play. Dee and Isaiah's voices soar, and the whole thing's a mix of punk energy and classic-rock chops. It's unsurprising that they made it onto the roster of this year's Afropunk festival in New York.
They open the Bites & Beats stage this Saturday, August 27, at 2:30 p.m in Brooklyn's Commodore Perry Park, where they'll play along with other such up-and-comers as Bad Rabbits and Das Racist. The festival is free and features another act with an area connection — Janelle Monae plays Sunday night, right before Cee-Lo Green.
Radkey has a new EP due out in October, and you can catch the group locally at RecordBar Monday, September 12, with Ponyboy and at the Riot Room on Friday, September 16, with Birdhand.
