The Convention: Northwest, March 6, Knitting Factory 

Ruben Medrano understands hip-hop, he understands hustle and he understands hard work. Medrano was half of hip-hop duo Lookin' For Change and during their few years together, they moved nearly 30,000 copies of their CDs. What Medrano took away from that was a greater insight into how helpful it would be to have a place where independent, up-and-coming hip-hop artists could turn for beats, recording, promotion and management. So he founded local promotions and management company Movement Music.

As part of its continued mission, Movement showcases artists it represents. On Saturday, Mar. 6, Movement Music will pull out all the hip-hop stops with Portland, Ore.'s Cool Nutz (pictured), joined by Pleasantville Killers, Jay Barz, Leezy Soprano, Hogg Boss, Dubble 00, Sic Society, Soulja Thugz and J Boi.

Saturday, March 6, 8 p.m., $8. Knitting Factory, 416 S. Ninth St., 208-367-1212, bo.knittingfactory.com.
