There's only one explanation for the fact that inventive rapper Tech N9ne seems to perform in Boise about once a week: He's so good that people want to see him over and over. Armed with an arsenal of talented opening acts, the motormouth renegade will lead his "Independent Powerhouse" tour into the Knitting Factory. It will be loud, it will be fast, it will be wild. That's all Tech N9ne knows after more than a decade of playing the hip-hop game by his own crazy rules.

7:50 p.m. April 11, Knitting Factory, 416 S. 9th St., Boise. $30. TicketWeb. Opening: Krizz Kaliko, Brotha Lynch Hung, Kutt Calhoun, Ces Cru, Rittz, Oly Ghost.
