On Monday March 3, Run River North (formerly known as Monsters Calling Home) performed live at the Troubadour. The show sold-out once again for the second time. The Prowling Kind, a band hailing from Phoenix, Arizona, opened up for Run River North, and indeed the music from both bands were amazing.
Run River North is made up of six Korean-Americans Alex Hwang, Daniel Chae, Jennifer Rim, Joseph Chun, John Chong and Sally Kim. The band first entered my radar when they performed at the 2011 Kollaboration Los Angeles show held at the Nokia Theater. While they were not the winners of the show, their sound was hard to forget. From then, the band has done very well for themselves and made impressive accomplishments from going on tour and opening for Anberlin, performing on Jimmy Kimmel Live, being picked up by label company Nettwerk Music Group to releasing their debut album!
