Run The Jewels To Perform RTJ4 In Full For Voter Registration Concert Stream
Killer Mike and El‑P have announced that they will be performing Run The Jewels’ excellent RTJ4 album in full next month to encourage voter registration.
The duo are set to host Holy CalamaVote, which is being presented by Adult Swim and Ben & Jerry’s, on October 10. “We’re proud to be a part of this initiative to encourage and enable voting and can’t wait to finally perform our album RTJ4,” they say. “This will be fun.”
As well as the full run-through of RTJ4, the Holy CalamaVote stream (which you can watch live at 5am in the UK) will encourage donations to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).
Of course, Run The Jewels aren’t the only act to get vocal in the run-up to the upcoming U.S. election on November 3. Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder set up his own personal Instagram account to post a step-by-step guide for fans detailing how to vote by mail, while Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong announced that he would be backing Joe Biden for president and Kamala Harris for vice president.
“Trump has got to go. America cannot afford another four years of Trump in office,” he said. “This is urgent. This is a national emergency. We must be wide awake from September to November 3!!!”
