Independent Grind Tour Homecoming Recap: KC And Wichita

Nov 2 2010

After 44 shows, spanning 29 states, the Independent Grind Tour has come to a halt. For its last two go arounds, the tour made its homecoming run with shows at The Uptown Theater in Kansas City, Missouri and at the Cotillion in Wichita, Kansas. Both shows were filled to the capacity with fans in their costumes, showing love and giving support to the artists that have put Kansas City on the map. With the the tour coming to an end, artists like Jay Rock, Glasses Malone, and E-40 will return to their native land of California while Tech and the rest will undoubtedly take a few days to kick back. Even after only half of a day, Krizz Kaliko has reported separation anxiety from performing. Knowing Strange Music and the grind they put in year-round, the rest won’t be for long.
