About the event


Red Means Run is a rock n roll band from Philadelphia, PA.  Formed in 2012 and lifting their name from Neil Young’s “Powderfinger”, the band was propelled by the songwriting of singer/guitarist, Ryan Wells, and recorded their first EP, “All Things Said And Done” the following year. Those early songs walked the crooked line between country and rock and painted vivid snapshots of people struggling through the enduring themes of love, loss, heartache and redemption. Red Means Run’s guitar-fueled live shows earned them comparisons in sound to early-Wilco, Whiskeytown and The Bottlerockets.

The band went back into the studio in 2015 to record the follow up EP, “Love of Blindness”. A collection of 5 songs that barnstorm their way across the country rock spectrum and lyrically mine the intersection between the things people hang on to and what they choose to let go.

Red Means Run spent the next few years playing shows up and down the east coast of the US booking themselves on stages large and small in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland and Virginia.

In late 2022, Wells began working with producer Derek Chafin (BarnSound and a|i|r records) fleshing out arrangements around a group of songs that became the band's first full length LP, “Things You Hold True”. With melodic hooks and poignant lyrics, these songs explore enduring beliefs, relationships and the ties that bind us all. A departure in sound from the first two EPs, the new record veers more towards the rock n roll side of the band's persona and draws a straight line from Wells' alt-country roots to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and The Replacements.

“Things You Hold True” will be available on June 15th 2024.

The Miners are an original alt country band based in Philadelphia, PA.  Originally formed in 2007, The Miners are known for their country-infused, alt country originals influenced by the likes of Uncle Tupelo, Whiskeytown, Gram Parsons, and Merle Haggard.  Co-founded by Keith Marlowe (lead vocals, acoustic and electric guitar), the current line-up also includes Gregg Hiestand (bass), Vaughn Shinkus (drums, backing vocals) and Brian Herder (pedal steel guitar), who heads a rotating cast of local pedal steel, lap steel and electric guitar players.

The Miners released their first full-length album, Megunticook, on October 22, 2021.  The album features 10 Marlowe-penned originals and is available on 180-gram vinyl (including limited edition red vinyl), CD and on most digital music services.  The album’s first single, “Without You” premiered on Americana Highways with the accompanying video premiering on Americana UK and the follow up single, “Leaving for Ohio”, premiered on American Blues Scene.  The album was named one of the top albums of 2021 by American Roots UK, was named a Best of 2022 by AltCountryNL in the Netherlands and received national and international airplay including on WXPN's Americana Music Hour.

In 2019, The Miners released their cover of Miller’s Cave, the Cowboy Jack Clement Classic previously recorded by Gram Parsons, Bobby Bare, Hank Snow, Charlie Pride and Doug Sahm among others.  The single received airplay in the U.S. and the U.K. and was reviewed by Americana-focused blogs such as Adobe & Teardrops.  The Miners debut six-song EP, Miner’s Rebellion, was released in 2012 to critical acclaim and notable airplay including a featured write-up in No Depression, inclusion on Bill Frater’s Freight Train Boogie podcast, and praise from alt country/Americana blogs both in the U.S. and overseas (UK & Netherlands) where it was named a Top-10 release for 2013 by Adobe & Teardrops, was chosen as the #1 Debut Release of 2013 by the blog Popa’s Tunes, and a Best of 2013 by UK radio show Standing in the Shadows of Lev.

The Miners purposely limit their live shows to a half dozen or so per year at a variety of Philadelphia’s top venues including Ardmore Music Hall, World Café Live, MilkBoy Philly, 118 North, The Royal Glenside and Jamey’s House of Music.   The Miners have opened for national touring acts including the Outlaws, John Wesley Harding/Wesley Stace, the Waco Brothers and Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers.  The Miners have also played a variety of outdoor concert series including Philadelphia’s OvalXP, the Jenkintown Arts Festival (main stage), and the Cheltenham Township Summer Concert Series.   For six years, The Miners hosted a highly successful benefit concert at World Café Live to raise money for Breast Cancer charities.
