Despite their nonstop touring schedule, we’ve until now somehow managed to have missed Chicago’s Running. But all was corrected at Monofonus Press’s Northside party which brought the band out with like-minded noise enthusiasts, Spray Paint and Beech Creeps. Sounding something like PC Worship on speed, the band roars through seven tracks off of their two records on Castle Face, 2013’s Vaguely Ethnic and Wake Up Applauding, which came out this past January. The band played a few more shows throughout the Northside weekend, and I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see them on some best-of lists. Don’t worry if you missed out, that’s why we’re here—and I’m sure you’ll get another shot at catching Running back in NYC soon.

I recorded this set from our usual location in Union Pool with a board feed from FOH Robert. The sound is excellent. Enjoy!
