Check us out Friday at The Mousetrap in Naptown and Saturday at Folly Moon in Muncie.
Finna shake some shit, man.
You GON jam.
Live last night at The Mousetrap Bar-Grill, my dudes @TheTwinCats jammed one of the cuts from my next album with me…and it came OFF.
This was the first time we played this tune together. Sho nuff FONKAY. Check this out…see how Naptown gets down.
#ATFU AND THE TWIN CATS TOO
LIVE! SATURDAY NIGHT, JUNE 16! with @TheTwinCats!
I fell back from playing shows until I knew they would be worth the time and effort…and honestly, for a while, I had to go and get my other ducks in a row.
I basically fell back from playing shows here because I had a lotta bad experiences over the last few years, wanted to learn how to do other things, and wanted to play DIFFERENT kindsa shows…like this one. I come from a rock background and host a rock show on TV where I live. I come from a soul background and work on the contemporary R&B station where I live.
I didn’t wanna be on the bill of yet another ‘hip hop’ show when I started to feel like I wasn’t JUST making ‘hip hop’ music AND I felt like hip-hop artists in this city were totally being taken lightly AND for granted.
My answer was to focus on extending the reach of #ATFU elsewhere, learn how to produce music myself, and establishing myself to the world as ‘Rusty Redenbacher, from Naptown…not stuck there. You better start checking for him and his people.’
…but the right show with the right bands and MC’s…? I’ll be there if they need me and I can do it.
all that said, “I AM A HIP HOP ARTIST” in the truest sense of ALL those words..and I always will be. I can’t deny what I am…but what I am, like hip hop, has roots in a little of EVERYTHING.
I want that recognized cuz it’s coming out in the music.
I’m excited dennamug for this one…
See ya Saturday.
This is the set-list from the show @MrKinetik and I played in LaPorte this weekend. As you can see, we had too much music to pick from…and we’re not counting the encore songs that we could throw into the mix.
We actually had to cut even more songs from this set as the show was running behind schedule. The time of the set you’re looking at here is about an hour, all solid material. I told Mr. Kinetik after the show, “Man, think of all the great songs we DIDN’T play!”
He said, “We have too much music that works…that’s a good problem to have.”

I knew this was coming.
Here’s all the #LOOMANOTTY symbolism in Madonna’s halftime show.
People need hobbies.

#ATFU - All Together For Us
THIS Friday, July 1st… brought to you by @OldSoulEnt…
Wednesday, June 22nd, we’re going back to the spot where a lotta this started for some of us, The Melody Inn, affectionately known as ‘The Mel’
Expect greatness. The Mel has long been a bastion of good times and is actually the spot where alpha.live and Rusty first began to talk (and spar). Weekly battles used to be held there and many ill rhymes were spit. Great times were had and the foundation for more than a few of #Naptown’s best spitters was laid at this little bar that was giving hip-hop a forum in #Naptown when other folks were acting scared.
We’re bring as much of the Alley as we can, baby. We’re rocking with Brad Real and Wiz Kids and looking to really get busy; our man alpha.live should be rolling in hot with the ‘Soul Cinema’ goods, Mr. Kinetik will probably play material from ‘Sounds Of Soul’ and definitely will be joined by Rusty Redenbacher to do tracks from ‘The Professor And The Hustler’ . Expect to see F.I.R.E. (Feeray) and Son Of Thought bring their unique brand of chaotic wisdom to the stage…
Yep…for a Wednesday. This is how we get down.
Save the date; June 22, 2011 at The Melody Inn in beautiful #NAPTOWN.
