SAD RAD is a collective responsible for all-ages events, shared   equipment, a jam space and a venue in Halifax, NS. Together   with INK STORM Screen Printers Society, the two groups share a   space called RADSTORM (6050 Almon St. Suite 212). Meetings are   every 1st and 3rd Sunday at 3pm. All are welcome. SAD RAD was established in 2012 and first occupied a now-  legendary spot above a radiator shop. After that space, the   group enjoyed an entire year of decentralized, battery-powered,   outdoor shows with occasional support from allied groups until   an unholy trinity of ink and noise gave rise to RADSTORM as we   know it today. SAD RAD utilizes a do-it-together approach to organizing and   promoting while specifically gearing events towards the   underage crowd and others who may not be represented or are   alienated by the larger Halifax music scene. We aim to foster   community building through trust, respect, communication and   support. SAD RAD has zero tolerance for violence, hatred and   all forms of oppression. Our space is alcohol and drug free,   community funded, queer positive and totally punk. We encourage   anyone who is interested to become a participant and help shape   the way RADSTORM grows.

we try to have monthly fundraising events to help cover our share of the rent at radstorm. these are usually shows with local bands, if you want to play a fundraising event for the space please get in touch. 

from time to time we put on shows for touring bands. we try to give folks $120 or 60% of the door, which ever is more. we cannot stress enough that the space is alcohol and drug free and that to keep our space open to the public this needs to be respected. if you are an out of town band that would like to play a show here, reach out to someone you know in the collective to help bottomline the event for you, or send an email to the group and see if anyone wants to take it on.
