Run The Jewels on tour, played Chicago (pics), featured in ‘Silicon Valley’ trailer

El-P and Killer Mike released the third Run the Jewels album as a surprise Christmas gift (read our review), and they’re now on tour in support of it. It’s a pretty stacked bill, with The Gaslamp Killer, Gangsta Boo, Nick Hook and Cuz opening.

We just caught the tour at Chicago’s Aragon Ballroom on Friday (2/17). RTJ played a good chunk of their last two albums, their eponymous song from the first album, and their DJ Shadow collab “Nobody Speak.” Gangsta Boo came out for her guest vocals on “Love Again (Akinyele Back).” Pictures of RTJ, Gangsta Boo (backed by Nick Hook) and The Gaslamp Killer from the Chicago show are in the gallery above. (We missed Cuz unfortunately.) Setlist below.

The tour is about to hit NYC for FOUR Terminal 5 shows on 2/25, 2/26, 2/27 & 3/1. The first three are sold out but the 3/1 show is still on sale. They also play Boston Calling, Upstate NY’s Mysteryland, and other festivals. Updated dates are listed below.

In other news, “Talk to Me” off RTJ’s new album is in the trailer for the upcoming fourth season of HBO’s Silicon Valley. The season premieres on April 23 at 10 PM EST. Watch the trailer below.
