RAD SUMMER is a booking agency, promotions company, and general moniker for projects undertaken by a small group of friends in Bloomington, IN. RAD SUMMER began as the name of Curtis Vodka and Flufftronix’s Summer 2007 tour, a six week jaunt across both North American coasts, the midwest, and Canada. Booked and managed almost exclusively by Flufftronix (aka Michael Lasday), he felt afterwards that such a project was too big for one person to organize alone. RAD SUMMER is the name of the effort to expand operations.
