Run the Jewels/Tame Impala/Disclosure @ ACL Fest 10/2/2015
They came onstage blaring Queen's "We Are the Champions" -- and then threw all irony out the window, by actually proving it. Run The Jewels are untouchable.
Is there anyone in hip-hop with a live show this good? Actually, how about anyone in any genre? The manic energy, the must-bounce-to-it beats, the laser sharp wordplay and social commentary. Killer Mike and El-P in a class of their own.
They started with their killer track, "Run the Jewels," and the crowd lost its mind. Thousands of hands moved to the beat and the MCs went to work. - [Austin 360]
