Run The Jewels at The UC Theatre
Run The Jewels: El-P and Killer Mike, two of the most distinctive and celebrated names in rap, might have seemed like an unlikely pairing on paper, but the duo subverted and pulverized all expectations with their critically lauded Run The Jewels collaborative LP. Tapping into the creative synergy they'd discovered in 2012 on Mike's R.A.P. Music album (produced by El-P) and El'sCancer 4 Cure album (featuring Mike ), plus subsequent tours together, Run The Jewels cemented their musical alliance with an album of uncompromisingly raw, forward thinking hip-hop and garnering limitless critical accolades. DJ Aaron Axelsen: If you live in the Bay Area and have ever tuned in to Live 105, chances are you already know Aaron Axelsen. He's the host of Soundcheck Sunday's from 9PM - 12AM and Subsonic Saturday's from 10PM - 1AM.
