Staring down the barrel of another dreary Sunday? Alex's Bar has the prescription. San Diego's Gun Runner will be playing along with Long Beach trio Bella Novela. Featuring a cool groove meets dirty rock sound, the Fender Rhodes keyboards used by Gun Runner complement their fuzzy, clicking guitars with quirky synergy. Vocalist Sean Davenport has the immediately distinctive voice reminiscent of David Bowie and Conner Oberst. Don't forget to check out Bella Novela. With a high energy stage show and singer Jackie Ojeda's glass-shattering pipes, Gun Runner has their work cut out for themselves.
