Run By The Gun Performs Debut Album Inspired by their Comic Book Series for New York Super Week
Comics meet Rock for a night in the West Village as part of New York Comic Con
NEW YORK – It’s a New York Comic Con first: a band that merges rock and roll with a comic book series. Join Run By the Gun as they play songs off their debut album, ‘Songs From the Little Blue House,’ at Rockbar in the West Village on Thursday, October 9. Doors 9PM.
Run By the Gun is an American virtual band created by Rey Miranda and Zambia Greene. The RBG’s fictional life, based in New York City’s East Village and Lower Eastside neighborhoods, is explored and chronicled in the comic book series of the same name.
Afropunk.com says fans of comic books and music are “in for a treat” with Run By the Gun’s integration of visual graphics and intense musical energy. When RBG comics debuted on ComiXology, BleedingCool.com named it their new release Top Pick. Their musical style is straightforward, guitar heavy rock and roll that draws its primary influence from elements of British punk, 90’s grunge, alternative and 70’s arena rock, and power-pop in the vein of bands like Cheap Trick and Big Star.
Their comic universe focuses on the effects their art has on all the character’s lives, loves, friendships and the adventures they experience as they build their band.
Ladykiller invites you to experience the transmedia crossover live at Rockbar in the West Village on Thursday, October 9. Doors at 9PM. Tickets are available for purchase from Eventbrite at http://bit.ly/1va3LB6
