2 Picketts to Tittsburgh EP
It's a dark night, darker than most, and you head off to your local sip and swill for a bit of a 'forget my name' Friday, But tonight isn't like other nights...no not this night. The rusted out marquee outside this once fine establishment you call your second home reads 'One Night Only...Run GMC' You get to thinking..Who the F$%K is Run GMC? So you head in through that same old black door covered in stickers of the other 2000 bands you never watched in this sinkhole of a bar. You throw a bandit in your lip and order a flat glass of Black Label. Then they start...an 8 car musical pileup that leaves no survivors. Run GMC IS Canada's only 8 piece original 'Crabgrass' Trucker band. The band has just released it's first EP called '2 Pickets to Tittsburgh' and has just come off the heels of a sold out Commodore Ballroom performance in Vancouver as well as Junofest 2009, and the World Ski and Snowboard Festival You may see a lot of bands this year!
