Runaway Sun Showcase "Bad Bad Man" With Short Film

Nearly a decade removed from the release of their debut album, Houston's own Delta-rock blues group Runaway Sun is still enjoy performing their earlier cuts. So much so, in fact, that the band recorded a music video for "Bad Bad Man," one of the tracks from their eponymous release, which they will be premiering this weekend at Buffalo Bayou Brewery.

"There are a lot of people out there who have never heard our music before," says vocalist Andrew Karnavas of choosing to make a music video for what could be considered one of the band's classics. "So if 'Bad Bad Man' came out five years ago or five minutes ago, it doesn't seem to matter."

For the video, which was shot at Dean's Downtown and Bird House Productions Studio, the Bayou City-born four-piece teamed up with Rivet Production and Lynn Birdwell, who directed, produced and assisted in the creative direction of the short film.
