Fri, July 8, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony
Ace of Spades, 7 p.m., $25
Sacramento, CA 95814
Remember when Bone Thugs-N-Harmony’s song “Crossroads” hit radio waves in ’96? I owned the cassette tape. Imagine a young Stephanie sitting in her room listening oh-so-carefully to each word Bizzy, Layzie and the rest of BTNH would spit out at lightning speeds. This, of course, is way before I discovered Twista. Now, the guys of the former hip-hop quintet (minus Krayzie and Wish Bone) are rollin’ through Sacto on their Resurrection Tour, complete with a live band. Although “Crossroads” was the hit that earned them their first Grammy, I’ll still bump “1st of tha Month” all day. Cash your check and get on. 1417 R Street, http://bonethugsnharmony.com.
