RTJ at Lollapalooza 2014 (more by James Richards IV)
RTJ

Run the Jewels, aka El-P and Killer Mike, gave away downloads of their new album for free last week. Now it's officially released physically and as a deluxe version on iTunes which includes the bonus track "Blockbuster Night Pt. 2" which features Despot and Wiki of Ratking. You can stream that below.

RTJ are celebrating the new release on Wednesday (10/29) at Rough Trade with a big event that begins at 6:30 PM and includes "an album play-through, a meet and greet, poster giveaways, and more." The first 20 people to get in will also gain entry to a private event happening afterwards that includes "a brief Q&A session with the group and Mass Appeal's Sacha Jenkins," followed by a screening of NYC classic The Warriors at nearby Nitehawk Cinema. Another way to get into that screening/Q&A is by entering our contest to win a pair of tickets. Details below.

They'll also be performing "Early" on the 'Late Show With David Letterman' this week with Boots, who also appears on the album version of the track. That airs on Halloween.

Halloween is also when their tour begins in Philly. It then hits Fun Fun Fun Fest, which goes down in Austin from November 7-9. Check out the schedule.

After FFF, they play NYC on November 29 at Stage 48 with Ratking and Despot. Tickets for that show are still available and we're also giving away a pair. Details below.
