Tech N9ne

7 p.m. • Myth • all ages • $35

Between last year’s serious, stern single “Fragile” with Kendrick Lamar and this year’s wild new one “Hood Go Crazy” with B.o.B. and 2 Chainz, Kansas City indie-rap hero Tech N9ne has edged pretty close to the mainstream. He’s still doing things his way in concert, though, with his ever-present white face paint and a new live backing band. He returns to Myth with a mini-fest-like tour lineup including Slug’s Felt partner Murs, Chris Webby and Krizz Kaliko. Chris Riemenschneider

 

Kill Kancer benefit

9 p.m. • Turf Club • $12-$14

The good name of late Soul Asylum bassist Karl Mueller continues to attract great lineups in the name of Kill Kancer, the rocking fundraiser that supplies and encourages gardens among low-income neighborhoods (healthful eating equals lower cancer rates). Run Westy Run and Golden Smog all-star Kraig Johnson will perform with reputable New York songwriter David Poe, sandwiched between opening sets by honky-tonk vets Trailer Trash and buzzing newcomer Sam Cassidy. Heartland rockers American Scarecrows headline the event and an unannounced guest or two is also likely. C.R.
