Run By The Gun is a transmedia project involving a comic book series, music and live performances to tell the story of a NYC band struggling to succeed on their own terms in a city that eats young and old alike.
RBG’s music expands the narrative of the comic book series by allowing fans the ability to listen to the songs RBG’s characters write based on their lives and the lives of their circle of family and friends.
RBG’s comic book series allows fans of RBG’s music a greater understanding of how their songs came to be. In a sense, the books are a much more detailed, story-driven, version of liner notes.
Run By The Gun performs live, playing the songs detailed in the comic books but also performing songs that stand alone, furthering the artistic expression of the song writers. At RBG’s venue, everyone can experience the RBG transmedia project as a whole, combining the music, the books, and the live performance, to further push the Run By The Gun narrative.
Join Jonah, Sarah, Peter, Ada and the rest of their gang as they all do their very best to navigate their way through a rugged, urban reality of hard drugs, questionable sex, and, of course, a shitload of rock ‘n’ roll.
RBG music can now be found on these popular streaming music services:
Music Unlimited (Sony)
Napster (now Rhapsody)
More to be added soon.
Suggested for mature readers: Months following the birth of Peter and Ada’s baby, Jonah is hard at work trying to build a new band with Peter. Meanwhile, Jonah’s relationship with Sarah has grown sexually, but not much otherwise. Despite feeling compelled to be in one another’s company, the two struggle painfully to get an understanding of both each other, and the new, toxic beast that their dubious, mutual attraction has created. Tempers flare and nerve-endings fray, as old behaviors and new attitudes threaten to crack Jonah’s well-crafted veneer of quiet strength. Will… the lone wolf… survive?
