On November 3, Run the Jewels were slated to appear at Blurt’s sister business Schoolkids Records for a meet ‘n’ greet and record signing prior to a concert that night at Cat’s Cradle. Due to throat problems El-P could not attend but never fear, Killer Mike made up for his partner’s absence in style, even putting a slew of fans on the guest list when he learned that they’d been unable to score tickets to the sold-out show. (The high point came when a pint-sized homie presented Mike with a tiny model of a vintage automobile then confidently posed with him for a photo.) Local shutterbug Dave Brainard of BrainardPhoto.com caught it all on film, right down to the last gold chain. – Ed.
