ABOUT Run By The Gun
Run By The Gun is a transmedia project involving a comic book series, webcomics, music, and live performances to tell the story of an 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 comics 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 and webcomic series allow fans of RBG’s music a greater understanding of how their songs came to be. In a sense, these are a much more detailed, story-driven, version of liner notes.
Run By The Gun also performs live, playing the songs detailed in the comics but also performing songs that stand alone, furthering the artistic expression of the songwriters. At RBG’s venue, everyone can experience the RBG transmedia project as a whole, combining the music, the comics, 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 is streaming on Apple Music, Amazon Music, Spotify, Tidal, Deezer, iHeartRadio, ReverbNation, and YouTube Music. The comic books are available in digital from Comixology and in print from Comic Flea Market. Webcomics are here on the website.
