On Friday, February 8th, 2013 I attended Becca Mann‘s (AWESOME) Art Show, Wane’s World: A History of “Things” at The Soccer Club Club. It was approximately 10pm, the gallery was packed, and my conversation was halted by very loud guitar feedback demanding my attention. An eruption of sound ensued, and the only importance was this incredible trio in the middle of the room-I felt like they were playing just for me! I was mesmerized, elated, and I wanted more!
Running’s music is the perfect mix of noise and punk that I can also shake my hips to!:) I have so much love for their music and I feel a special kindred in the way we think about concept and humor in our art! In an age of over indulgent selfie culture, I TRULY appreciate a band who describes their name as “intentionally ungoogleable”. Ladies and Gentlemen, allow me to present my FAVORITE Chicago band, Running!:)
