Eat Them Up, Yum!

The fans know it: Way before Trey and his posse bastardized the spelling, Radiators fans were called fish heads and gave the N'awleans funksters the same adulation reserved for space rocking jam bands. The band's 25-plus year history is filled with thousands of shows, hundreds of tours, a slew of recordings, and enough chops to fill a steakhouse. Somehow still keeping on -- and doing so with as much gusto and gumbo as ever -- the Rads were forged in a Crescent City garage and have been heat refined, and fire tested, over all their many years of constant touring. They continue to jelly roll swing, funk, soul, and gospel into a sweet confection of rockin' goodness, building a reputation for scorching performances and a fiendishly devoted fan base. You've got two nights to fuel up on a po' boy, some dark rum, and an Abita brew and get down downtown for some serious, Cajun'-spiced groovin'.

The Radiators play 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, August 26 and 27, at Revolution, 200 W. Broward Blvd., Fort Lauderdale. Tickets cost $20. Call 954-727-0950
