(SLO Brew) in San Luis Obispo knows how awesome it is – one-third bar, one-third restaurant, and one-third concert venue – the holy trinity of an amazing night.

Tech N9ne has been around more than a decade, and gone platinum without a major label. He’s been touring on and off since May in support of his last album All 6′s and 7′s, which was #4 on the Billboard Top 200. He’s on Tha Carter IV. Not exactly a lightweight.
In fact, he’s got another album, Welcome to Strangeland coming out on Nov. 8, his 40th birthday. But he still performs like a beast, and his sold-out show at The Roxy showcased his skills as a live performer.
During a recent stop in Austin,TX for The Lost Cities Tour, Tech N9ne dropped a bombshell on fans in attendance when he announced the official start of his K.A.B.O.S.H. project.

As we recently reported, Tech N9ne’s stage show during The Lost Cities Tour went through a major overhaul only a week into the tour.

While taking a break from the tour in San Diego, we caught up with Tech N9ne and asked him to elaborate on the new stage show.

J Byrd eventually got a chance to not only meet his idol but to open for him during the All 6′s and 7′s Tour stop in Green Bay. Continue reading
