D-Madness - Ruta Maya - September 21, 2006

What a bomb ass weekend! We'll get to that a little later... but First things first, I poppa... Austin's Legends D-Madness, World Trade (Bavu and Element7d), and DJ Phyfteen will be celebrating Nookie Coltrane's birthday on Sept 21st at Ruta Maya's.

Also, don't forget to check out D-Madness at the Rockin' Tomato Pizza Company on South Lamar this Wednesday, Sept. 6th. Now if we could only get those "special" pizza toppings. ;)

So back to the weekend... so it all started with the Rakim show... definitely the best show of the year! Ebun... better watch it tryin' to get down with that stash in your pants. ;) Then the RJD2 show last night which I heard was larger than the Cut Chemist show. The visuals were just trippy... but what was up with that encore performance?!? That was just weird.

More info:

Lorenzo Dwayne Jackson’s lifelong mission to bring the noise began at the tender age of three. He marched into a church choir rehearsal in his living room, sat himself down at the drum kit and insisted he be allowed to play. His father surrendered a pair of drum sticks, young D refused to put them down, and so it began. By age five D had earned a spot in the drummers’ rotation at Full Gospel Holy Temple Church in Dallas, Texas. When Dwayne relocated to Austin at age eight to attend the Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired, his early talent was recognized and he was accelerated into a music program with older children. Soon D was playing violin in orchestra, baritone and trombone in marching band, bass in jazz band and keyboards on the side.
