RUNAWAY GRAND OPENING

Come June, the Durham Bulls will host "DURM Night" during a midseason game against the Norfolk Tides, in which the locals will don uniforms designed by the Durham-based clothing company RUNAWAY.  Pegged as a "celebration of the city," the collaboration will recognize the Bull City's evolution from a former tobacco town whose primary identifier was the logo of its minor league baseball team to a place where a hip start-up brand like RUNAWAY can remodel the city's iconography by printing four simple letters on a T-shirt, selling them online and at area events, and creating a new look for Durham pride. Finally, the five-year grind has earned RUNAWAY a brick-and-mortar flagship in the heart of downtown Durham. Now it's time for the community to christen the retail space with some light partying and heavy buying. Raund Haus beat heads Trandle, Oak City Slums, Calapse, and Treee City provide the sounds. —Eric Tullis
