It’s not often we get word of developments with local hip hop group AcuMen. Though it is now arguably Springfield’s longest-active hip hop group, Tang 451 (aka Allen Vaughan) and The Mayor (aka Brett Johnston) keep a decidedly low profile these days thanks to family and work obligations. For longtime fans of the group, however, there is just such news: The group returns to its old days as a threesome tomorrow night at The Tipsy Turtle Pub when former member KG (aka Kyle Green) returns from Florida for his first performance with the group in about a year. The scheduled opening act is longtime friend of the group and standup comedian Merr. It all gets rolling at about 10 p.m.
