Run the Jewels will perform RTJ4 in full for an Adult Swim special at midnight Eastern on Saturday, October 10. The concert will stream on the network’s YouTube channel once the broadcast finishes early Sunday morning. The event, which aims to encourage voter turnout, is both the debut live performance of RTJ4 and Adult Swim’s first ever concert broadcast. “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,” Killer Mike and El-P in a press release. “This will be fun.”
Titled “Holy Calamavote,” the Ben & Jerry’s–sponsored show will not be interrupted by ads, according to the press release. Those watching the livestream will be prompted to donate to the ACLU, should they wish.
Jabari Paul, the U.S. activism manager at Ben & Jerry’s, said in the press release: “Young people are the single largest block of voters, and if they turn out at the same rate as their parents, they have the power to hold elected officials accountable on issues like policing and public safety, climate change, education, jobs and the economy. That’s why we are proud that Run the Jewels is helping spread that word and we’re pleased to be working with Adult Swim to make this exciting night happen.”
