Run Come See & Elena Lacayo – Morir Bailando

ICYMI, Americana-infused rock band Run Come See are holding down a monthly residency at The Public Option, a cool brewpub in Langdon with a progressive tipping policy. The concept for this series running through 2020 is to collaborate each month with a different DC-based opening act, recording a collaborative song and uploading a video of the performance. This past Saturday they welcomed bilingual folk singer Elena Lacayo to the series and performed a new version of her Spanish-language song “Morir Bailando” originally from the 2017 full length album Volcán. The video was filmed by Lauren Calve, member emeritus and current fiancée of the band’s guitarist John Figura. Mark your calendars for the next show on Saturday March 14th featuring Steve Kolowich of Stranger in the Alps!

Presenting Run Come See @ Millennium Stage

DC’s original source for homegrown music Hometown Sounds is really excited to present Run Come See for our December #DCmusic showcase at the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage.

Run Come See is a project of Washington, DC musicians Lauren Calve (slide guitar/vocals), John Figura (guitar/vocals), and Tom Liddle (upright bass/vocals). Each bringing their own sensibilities of songwriting to the band, Run Come See is a distillation of soulful blues, rock, and country. As a trio, Run Come See creates a deceptively full sound weaving together powerful lead vocals, intricate harmonies, and arrangements that highlight the beauty, power, and range of each instrument. Sharing songwriting, taking turns singing lead, and featuring each instrument, the band is a balanced collaboration between seasoned musicians who respect each other’s skill and musical voice while pushing each other in new directions. After the release of their recent debut album, the trio has been exploring new territory with Fred James on drums and DC jazz legend Thad Wilson (trumpet) leading a dynamic horn section.

RSVP here and come to the free performance at 6 PM on Wednesday December 27th!
