Rapper Koan grew up in the 9th Ward and played various horn instruments before he got into hop-hop, fronting E.O.E.'s blend of hip-hop, Latin and reggae sounds. He recorded his solo debut, Chronicles of a Dying Breed, over original instrumentation, not samples, and some New Orleans-style horn-heavy R&B sounds infuse local flavor into his old-school hip-hop style of fast but smooth flow. DJ Skratchmo, Sean C, Billsberry Flowboy and others open. Tickets $12. 10 p.m. Saturday. Tipitina's, 501 Napoleon Ave., 895-8477; www.tiptinas.com
