Radio Radio owner Tufty Clough opened a new Fountain Square venue not too long ago, the Dia De Los Muertos-themed La Revolucion, but he'll be hard-pressed to top his first club, the non-smoking, unostentatiously well-furnished, intelligently-booked, spacious but intimate Radio Radio. Consistently hosting some of the best and brightest local artists and a heavy rotation of up-and-coming and already arrived regional and national artists, Radio Radio is one the best places to see a show in town. The strong drinks and well-mixed sound makes this long-lived club a big reason why Fountain Square remains a perennially cool part of town.
