While many people had many complaints about Knotfest, the one thing they all agreed on was the performers were fantastic.  One of those that was on the big stage will now be coming to the Quad Cities on January 21, 2022.  Tech N9ne live at the Rust Belt with special guests Joey Cool and Jehry Robinson.

Tickets are on sale on December 13 at 10am right here.  Tickets start at $35 or get upfront in the party pit for just $5 more.

Tech’s unparalleled tour schedule and signature rapid-fire “chopper” style combined with the business acumen of Strange Music CEO Travis O’Guin have molded Strange Music into the number one independent hip-hop label in the world.

In less than two decades, Tech himself has earned three gold records, sold over two million albums, and made multiple appearances on Forbes’s “Hip-Hop Cash Kings” list. Tech’s multi-faceted skillset has not gone unrecognized by artists of all genres, exemplified by collaborations with such diverse artists as The Doors, Slipknot’s Corey Taylor, Eminem, and Boyz II Men, to name just a few. Everyone from Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

Yes, Tech N9ne's most recent song and video includes The Rock.  Not Dwayne Johnson, The Rock.  This isn't The Rock's first dive into music.  If you have a child, you know he sings in the movie Moana.  And if you are an old-school WWF (Yes...F) fan, you might remember him doing some singing with Stone Cold Steve Austin.  (I posted that video below as well, cause I got sucked into a rabbit hole on YouTube and it was those two were just so good together)  But this one with Tech N9ne, definitely not the family-friendly Dwayne that we are used to seeing.

This is so long...but these two were so good together.

Tech N9ne!  Coming to The Rust Belt.  Get your tickets today right here.

What The Quad Cities Did For Fun in the 90's

Many times over the years, I'll be talking with friends about years gone by and I'll say "take me back".

Every generation goes through this, I assume. Looking back at a more simple time where responsibilities haven't set in and life seems fun. Opportunities are endless.

Let's go back to the 1990's to Wacky Waters, 50 Cent Beer night and revisit Mallards Mania!

Quad Cities Live Music Venues That Aren't Live Music Venues Anymore

Nostalgia Alert!.

We've compiled a quick list (by no means comprehensive) of venues in the Quad Cities that are no longer music venues but to us will ALWAYS hold a special place were we saw some great shows and made some incredible memories.

To many of us the live music scene wasn't just a concert here & there. It was an every weekend affair. And it didn't matter if it was a touring band or your buddy's band. We were going to be there with a beer in hand and scream along with guitars that were way too loud in a room that was improperly treated acoustically and make some bad decisions.
