RunHideFight was featured on WXPN's The Key Studio Sessions, where they performed live. Click here to see video highlights of the session and listen to their complete set.  

"Geeta Dalal Simons, Christine Weiser, and Jo-Ann Rogan were fixtures of Philly's 90's rock scene. All three women had children, and put rock-and-roll aside, but they realized they couldn't keep their gear stashed away any longer."


The band RunHideFight (Geeta Dalal Simons, Christine Weiser, Brother JT, Jon Kois) stopped by to talk about how the group formed, motherhood, songwriting, guitars, musical influences, and some very personal life experiences that inspired some of their songs.

"Simons debuts her band and her custom-made checkerboard double-neck 24 string (12 electric neck/ 12 electric sitar neck) Chris DiPinto guitar in an opening slot for the legendary Pere Ubu at Johnny Brenda’s on November 14."

The riffs, the call and response/harmonies, and the fun, dirty, garage rock sound ... it's all there, plus more. Any of the tracks over at their Soundcloud page are delightful, but I picked this one because I really love the vocals (lead and background) and the slightly sinister 60s sound.

The Deli Magazine, a blog about emerging local artists, nominated RunHideFight for its Philadelphia's Featured Artist in November and featured our 3-24-18 show w/The Rectors and Big Lazy.

"Geeta Dalal is both a bona fide, badass rock and roller AND a stay-at-home Mom. After roughly 13 years off from performing, writing about music and producing content for public radio, Geeta couldn’t resist returning to her axe (and not just any axe: she plays a custom-made checkerboard double-neck 24 string guitar). She now helms the Philly-based RunHideFight."

RunHideFight's show with Pere Ubu is listed in The Philadelphia Inquirer's recommended "things to do" in Philly. 

On November 15, RunHideFight was played on Y-Not Philly along with new tunes from Wellerkenny 3Blue VelvetLouie LouieCurtis Cooper, and more.
