Run the Jewels in Concert at Stage AE; Pittsburgh Boat Show Opens at Monroeville CC (Fri., 1/13/17)

1) Some concerts are more than concerts: they’re moments, something to brag, “I was there,” to friends and family decades from now. The Run the Jewels show at Stage AE this month may be such a moment, for the concert coincides with the physical release of their highly anticipated third album, Run the Jewels 3. Why the hype? Run the Jewels are a hip-hop duo composed of Killer Mike and El-P, both respected performers in each other’s own right. El-P is also a noted producer. When the pair got together for a self-titled album in 2013, it was met with critical acclaim. 2014’s Run the Jewels 2 was even bigger, aided in part by “Close Your Eyes (And Count to Fuck),” a song which features Zack de la Rocha of Rage Against the Machine. For those hungry for a taste, the new album is available for free digital download on the group’s website. The Gaslamp Killer, Spark Master Tape, and Cuz open. Doors open 8 p.m. 400 North Shore Dr., North Shore. (CM)

2) Attention all captains, mates, and even landlubbers—The Pittsburgh Boat Show is underway again for the 57th year. Check out the latest in boating including new boats and accessories all under one roof at the Monroeville Convention Center. Boating season will hopefully be here before we know it. 5-10 p.m. today. January 13-15 and 20-22. 105 Mall Blvd., Monroeville.

3) No Bad JuJu is a local party band featuring a staggering eight members. This includes two lead vocalists and a horn section, which allows them to replicate the tracks of such beloved jumbo-sized bands as Parliament, Kool and the Gang, and Earth, Wind & Fire. Their set lists also include new hits from the likes of Katy Perry and Adele, as well as a few originals. This evening, they’ll be playing well into the night at Jergel’s Rhythm Grille. 9 p.m. 285 Northgate Dr., Warrendale.

4) It’s Pittsburgh Restaurant Week! Why is this important to you? More than 50 Pittsburgh restaurants are offering extra special deals through Jan. 15—either multi-course fixed price meals or dining options totaling $20.17.
