The Radiators have helped soundtrack the last 33 years in New Orleans and built a legacy that will be remembered best for their live reputation and the incredible community of fans that has built itself around this essential New Orleans act. After some 4,000+ live shows, Thursday night will mark the beginning of the end, as the Rads will kick off night 1 of the Last Watusi at Tipitina’s with an acoustic set that takes off at precisely 11:11 p.m. At some point in the twilight hours of Sunday morning, the ride will be over for the Rads.
