Run By The Gun 2017

We’re still here. And still hard at work.

After recording with Steve Albini at Electrical Audio in Chicago in late 2015, Run By The Gun went on the road to support our latest self-titled EP in 2016. Thanks to those who came out to support Run By The Gun in NYC, Philly, and Austin, TX. We had a great time.

We are scheduling more live performances in 2017 and releasing our latest demos written by Zambia Greene. We’ll keep you posted as those dates become more solid.

We are also releasing RBG’s web comic in March. Please check out our website and social media for the latest installments.

As always, thank you for your continued support. Please smash up some likes at our Youtube, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages.

Peace. 1Love.

RBG @ Recharge Lounge and Love Goat during SXSW 2016 (Wrap-up)

Run By The Gun went to Austin, Texas to perform several shows during the South By South West Music Conference and Festival (SXSW).

The first two shows were at Love Goat on Guadalupe Street. Close to the University of Texas, Guadalupe is one of the most popular stretches for indy showcases in Austin. RBG was ready to go as the sun came down, tearing into a set that featured songs from our current self-titled EP and previous album, Songs From The Little Blue House.

Our third show would take us to the offices of Videotape on Austin’s 6th street. During SXSW, Videotape is transformed into the Recharge Lounge. Hundreds of people flocked to the Lounge looking for a break from the standard SXSW fare. RBG, if anything, is a break from the norm, even by Austin’s standards.

Our last show was an impromptu set at 6th Street’s Trophy Club. The lack of hard rock on 6th street this year opened the door for us to play RBG’s brand of hard, indy rock, sound.

Thank you to The HYPE! For booking our shows, Love Goat, Videotape, and The Trophy Club for letting us play. Big shout out to Cynthia and Will High for letting us crash in their beautiful home for the week.

Until next year, Austin!

RBG @ Amalgam Comics and Coffeehouse (Wrap-Up)

Run By The Gun played a free show at the Amalgam Comics Coffee Shop in Philly. This place just opened and has gotten lots of kudos for being the first of its’ kind on the East Coast, run by a black American female, Arrielle Johnson. So RBG was happy to be among the first bands to grace the shop’s welcoming stage.

It was also the first show in 2016 for RBG, which now consists of perennial Philly music scene player, Andre’ Coles, A.K.A. Boy Wonder on vocals and guitar – Andre’s talents were featured on the recent self titled Run By The Gun EP, recorded in Chicago under the helm of Steve Albini at Electrical Audio Studios – newcomer badass Jake on bass, and Branden King fucking the shit out of the drums.

The show was almost shut down due to the volume’s impeding the important business of aesthetic, assisted self-mutilation at the tattoo shop next door, but the situation was squashed with grace and aplomb by Arielle, and the afternoon was saved.

The show was good, especially for our first live outing ever. The band’s renditions of RBG mainstays, “Fucking Through Hell,” and “Holding On,” brought particular magic, as patrons danced, delighted, drank coffee and bought comic books
