Calendar Pick: Tech N9ne

Tech N9ne

It always feels like a special occasion when a large, nationally known hip-hop act comes through Athens, and Tech N9ne carries a highly influential legacy. His wild energy and crazy flows have amassed billions of views and streams, four platinum singles, three gold singles and a gold album, Everready. Tech N9ne’s brand of hip hop is known for its signature rapid-fire “chopper” style, but his collaborators have ranged from Tupac to Gary Clark, Jr. to Deftones. Even for those unfamiliar with his catalog, his proclaimed “weird” and “wonderful” stage show is an entertaining performance by itself. Bigger than rap, Tech N9ne built a culture through the record label Strange Music, Inc. Also on the bill for this night are hip-hop labelmates Joey Cool, X-Raided and ¡Mayday!.

WHO: Tech N9ne, Joey Cool, X-Raided and ¡Mayday!
WHEN: Saturday, June 4, 7 p.m. (doors), 8 p.m. (show)
