Run the Jewels/The Gaslamp Killer/Gangsta Boo/Nick Hook/Cuz

When: Sat., Jan. 14, 8 p.m. 2017

One of the most compelling hip-hop groups performing today, Run the Jewels dropped their third album on Christmas Day, and it’s a knockout. With Killer Mike and El-P trading verses, RTJ has given the American hip-hop scene the sort of politically charged, angry, retribution-seeking music that it’s been needing (more and more, in fact, as this country slips into a more troubling era). On the third album, the beats are deeper and the vocals are more introspective than ever (see “Thursday in the Danger Room,” for example). This show sold out ahead of time, but do what you can to lock down some tickets: This is guaranteed to be one of the heaviest shows in Cleveland all year. (Sandy)
