Catching the Roots featuring Cody ChesnuTT’s “The Seed 2.0″ video on TV (when you could actually find videos not on random channels you forget exist), I stopped dead in my tracks and needed to find out who this confident revolutionary was. Listening to 2010′s Black Skin No Value, it’s clear he revived the classic 60′s and 70′s rock/soul blends with socially conscious messages. Contributing to his recent Kickstarter campaign to produce his latest album, Landing On A Hundred about “landing on something real and truthful”, I was eager to hear these new tracks live. Known for bringing some of the dopest acts around on a consistent basis for decades in Los Angeles, of course Cody ChesnuTT would perform at the historic Troubadour to kick off this latest tour.
Arriving around 9:30 PM and luckily given media access, I chilled in the lounge/bar upstairs listening to DJ Jeremy Sole until Cody hit the stage at 10 PM and warmly greeted the diverse packed crowd. Doing songs from the new album and the 2010 EP like “Til I Met Thee”, “What Kind of Cool (Will We Think of Next)” and one of my favorites “Where Is All The Money Going”, the audience grooved and sang along throughout.The thrilled fans around the stage received a surprise as he jumped into the crowd and they used the opportunity to say hi, hug him and shake his hand. Also holding a meet and greet after the show, I got my own chance to say what’s up to “everybody’s brother”.
