Runnie-lution No. 9

The Runnies are apart of Richard Giraldi’s Top 11 Chicago Records of 2011. Check out the kind words and the rest of the list!
9. The Runnies – You Can’t Win
A late entry into the running, but you really can’t not win with the latest from The, uh, Runnies. This local trio goes easy on the guitar and heavy on the organ, but it works for a sonic delivery that’s part ’60s garage, motown and church revival. Not to mention it’s powered by Mary McKane’s smokey vocals that fit somewhere between Janis Joplin and Robert Allen Zimmerman.

12/30/11 Detroit Cobras w/ The Runnies and Ramma Lamma!

Friday, December 30, 2011 Time: 10:00pm Detroit Cobras The Runnies Ramma Lamma Combining girl-group hooks and harmonies with high-octane, Motor City garage rock, the DETROIT COBRAS conjure the 1960s era of Top 40 AM radio and vinyl 45s. Lead belter RACHEL NAGY has attitude to burn and the band delivers dirty, punk garage chords with such ferocity the COBRAS have been called "the ultimate rock & soul party band," by LA Weekly and SPIN has proclaimed "you should hope and pray that they play your party." Local fuzz-rockers THE RUNNIES return to our stage with their psychedelic brand of garage rock. Their quick-hitting songs are filled to the brim with hooks and catchy choruses and they'll surely have the kids pogoing to the organ-driven howlers. Straight out of Milwaukee and bringing their version of glam rock with a DAVE CLARK 5 beat to our stage, RAMMA LAMMA are the new project from 2/3s of PLEXI 3. They've got a single out now via FDH Records and they're headed up I-94 to open tonight's female-fronted garage rock showdown.
