RFB Presents 1st Thursdays at The Well is pleased to bring you an official Northside Festival show featuring local hip-hop artists Mikal Amin, Wisdom Natural, TK The Architect and Junk Rat this Thursday, June 7.

A veteran of eleven international tours including extensive work as a State Department Cultural Ambassador through the American Music Abroad program, and as the Artistic Director for the Harlem Biennale “Our Better Angels” project in 2012.
TK The Architect – TK The Architect has spent his life finding a balance. Raised in New York by his Japanese mother and Italian-American father, TK (born Zach Takayuki Zanghi) grew up in a bilingual household. His new album, Blue Season, is a representation of his self-awareness and ability to bridge different worlds.
Wisdom Natural – “Wisdom comes from experience. I only rap about what I’ve been through first hand, or what I’ve witnessed happening. I’m not for everybody, and that’s ok. My music is my fossil and when am long gone, it will speak for me.”
Junk Rat – Ever see Possums eating trash out the trash can? Well… picture them with instruments and you get Kenny Truhn and fiancé Suzanne Burkhardt. Kenny has finally found his true sound with the help from his beautiful soulmate/trash queen Suzanne Burkhardt.
