Album release show Saturday, Aug. 23 at Mad Planet

By Evan Rytlewski
The Rusty Ps have been staples of Milwaukee's hip-hop scene for nearly 20 years now, and while they don't release music at the clip they used to, when they do they usually make it count (check their 2013 single "Frequency," which is still a jam).

 Milwaukee-born satirist Will Durst has weighed in on the fractured state of the country for The New York Times, NPR and CNN, though his soapbox of choice is the Internet, where he posts regular commentary to

The Rusty Ps aren't as active as they used to be, but then again, very few Milwaukee acts are as active as The Rusty Ps used to be.

Tonight @ Mad Planet - 9 p.m.

Mixing backpacker hip-hop with a smattering of popular club rap doesn’t sound like such a revolutionary idea, but until just a half-decade ago, few Milwaukee DJs had flirted with that simple combination, leaving a giant niche for Kid Cut Up and his fellow No Request DJs to fill. Cut Up is now one of the most prolific, successful . . .

Today @ Potter Ave in Bay View - Noon to 8 p.m.

In a brilliant marketing move, Pabst Blue Ribbon opted against advertising directly to its growing consumer base of young, bohemian types who view drinking unpretentious, bargain beer as a badge of honor.
