Tech N9ne roars through Milwaukee yet again

A frequent to one of Milwaukee’s most recognizable venues, Tech N9ne hosted his ‘Independent Grind’ tour for another explosive volume of a seemingly never ending extravaganza. With even more artists signed to his independent label, Strange Music, and personal new album Strangeulation dropping just one day prior, Tech wasn’t short on debuting fresh music.

Long time friend Krizz Kaliko accompanied Tech for a plethora of songs brining the show to another level. While Tech has no problem handling the destructive crowds on his own, Krizz brings out just a little more to put him over the edge.

Humble to all fans, early on, Tech invited a small boy gripping to the barrier up to watch the show from side-stage. No doubt his night was made as he could be seen dancing and singling along to much of the set.

With the frequency Tech N9ne releases new music, there’s always new material for his dramatic shows. As an independent, Tech N9ne makes a point to put on a better show than some of the larger and more widely played in hip-hop. Dramatic lighting, towering aggressive backdrops, and of course the man himself with the painted face he’s donned for a number of tours. He’s not the biggest name in rap, but he sure makes more noise than most.

Tech’s signature style in unmistakable, even more impressive in person with the accompanying finger-dancing he’s taken habit to. Continuing with tradition, it wouldn’t be a Tech N9ne show without “When I say Tech, you say N9ne!” chanting through “Einstein,” a song transformed by live performance.

Marking his fourth visit in two years, Tech has been busy both in the studio and on the road leaving us think he hasn’t got time for much more. But it’s clear he doesn’t need much else. He puts his heart into each and every performance and it sure shows and what he gets back drives him to go further.

The new albumĀ Strangeulation marks a new era for Tech N9ne. Following Something Else, the 2014 release streamlines his skill and brings it together in a more broadly appealing and likable way. At this rate, it’s almost certain he’ll be back within the year.
