Picks: Sapient

[MUSIC] TUESDAY, MARCH 5

Portland rapper Sapient is another example of indie rap finally adding Las Vegas to its tour routes. More a streetwise storyteller than a hired gun of the generic rap gestapo, Sapient lurks just beneath underground, the same crummy green rooms in which you’d find Zion I or Abstract Rude. Touring on his new album Slump, he’s rocking the underrated LVCS stage as part of the weekly Hip Hop Roots. 9 p.m.; LVCS, 425 Fremont St., 382-3531, $3-$5
