Moon Runners run the gamut with explosive set

 I missed Red Litmus, but was impressed as always with the Moon Runners, who played a quick set of experimental rock that displayed some impressive musical chops and styles including ’80s metal fretboard tapping, a touch of blues, funk and a whole lot of fun. Coupled with the vocals, they sounded like emo-funk music.

They ended with a 15 minute long epic length song including all of their influences and more, with jagged rhythms, a bluesy solo and a tormented groove. Their set was all the more impressive as the show was the first with a bassist named Dave.
