At this point in his career, Tech N9ne needs no introduction to Colorado. The independent and highly successful Kansas City rapper -- who makes his fourth and final stop in the state tonight for this round of his tour -- found a niche for his bizarre hip-hop style in and around the Mile High City early on.
Though not directly connected to the Insane Clown Posse's Detroit rap empire, Tech N9ne's similar clownish leanings aren't hurt by the comparisons, either: The artist taps into the Midwestern deviant feel that brings Juggalos out in droves.
With an extensive career spanning more than ten years and just as many albums, Tech N9ne is readying the release of two collaborative full-length albums in 2011 on his own label, Strange Music. This show is all-ages, and tickets are $37. Doors open at 8 p.m., show begins at 9 p.m.
