Five thousand people, shoulder-to-shoulder, positively humming with excitement in The Shrine Auditorium for Run The Jewels to deliver their hip hop verses in support of their recently released third LP Run the Jewels 3.

Gone are the days playing The Echoplex. Killer Mike and El-P are filling a need for many today and tore through their set with a ferociousness – their nonstop flow and breakneck beats unrelenting. A cavalcade of guests was featured, including Danny Brown on “Hey Kids (Bumaye),” Blink-182’s Travis Barker on “All Due Respect” and a pleasant surprise for the encore with Zach De La Rocha on “Close Your Eyes (And Count to Fuck)” and “Kill Your Masters.”

With the speakers turned up to 11, battering the Shrine’s windows with a barrage of sound, RTJ gave us all hope as El-P told us when we’re feeling like there is nothing that can be done to alleviate the darkness that has descended upon our brains and our hearts, “I promise and I swear to God that shit will pass.”
