The Run around is a pop/punk quintet hailing from Chicago, IL. With the intent and passion to create music that will linger far beyond the performance.The Run Around began to develop a fan base around Illinois State University and continued to play bigger shows with bands such as Lucky Boys Confusion and AM Taxi. In the summer of 2009 the band entered and won Briggs and Stratton Battle of the Bands, and beat out 777 bands around the world to play Summerfest in Milwaukee. At Summerfest, The Run Around shared the stage with Blues Traveler. Their newest EP, Side Effects May Vary, is now available on Itunes. Their accomplishments thus far are nothing short of impressive but if you asked anyone of them they’d tell you…“You haven’t seen anything yet.”
