It’s almost time! It’s less than one week away until we’re back at Boston Calling once more. So, to keep with tradition, here is our list of who you need to be keeping an eye out for!
On our list so far: #7. Sharon Van Etten / Krill / The Ballroom Thieves
Today we talk about our #6 pick, Run The Jewels.
In comparison to the
last time around, this lineup features a much smaller amount of hip-hop.
September had Childish Gambino and Nas (and twenty one pilots, if we’re being
fair), while September 2013 brought us Major Lazer and Kendrick Lamar. The May
editions seem to favor the indie/pop/rock side of things, so Run the Jewels’ chunk of time is sure
to be a contrast from the majority of the rest of the weekend, in a good way.
Plus, even though El-P has assured the public that Run the Jewels 3 will definitely not be
coming out until 2016, that doesn’t definitely
mean we won’t be getting the first taste of new music, right? We’ll seeeeeee.
For fans of: Childish Gambino, Lupe Fiasco, Major Lazer
For a taste, check out: “Close Your Eyes,” “All Due Respect,” “Oh My Darling
Catch them: Saturday, 2:55, JetBlue Stage
