The 18 Most Interesting Things You Might Have Missed at Index Fest

Run The Jewels' stage banter Together, Killer Mike and El-P have put out one of the best albums of 2013, so it was surprising to see them in such an early time slot on Friday. The 6 p.m. crowd was noticeably thin, of course, but it made Dallas' first time seeing Run The Jewels material live an intimate one. On top of a powerhouse set, rap's best new buddy comedy duo were adorable onstage together. They just looked like they were having so much fun up there. Highlights included Killer Mike's busting El-P's balls for spilling his drink, admitting his kids call EL-P "their white uncle." and his shout out to the cool dad in the audience with the little girl on his shoulders. Afterwards, the lucky family was invited backstage for a meet and greet, where Killer Mike told the little girl, "You're going to think this is so cool one day." --Vanessa Quilantan
