  • Bone Thugs -N- Harmony, featuring Wish Bone and Krayzie Bone, plays Downtown Music Hall Saturday.

7:30 p.m. Downtown Music Hall. $25 adv., $30 d.o.s.

Hard to believe it's been almost 20 years since Eazy-E signed Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, who released the "Creepin on ah Come Up" EP in 1994. A couple years after that, Layzie Bone, Flesh-n-Bone, Bizzy Bone, Krayzie Bone and Wish Bone saw their biggest hits with the welfare-check celebrating "1st of tha Month" and the Grammy-winning "Tha Crossroads."

I still play "1st of tha Month" every month, on the first of the month. It's held up really well over the years, and it's a great way to wake up, especially with that intro, with its rooster crow, alarm clock and Marvin Gaye-inspired "Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up" chant and laid-back vibe.

Anyways, this show features Krayzie Bone and Wish Bone, with Dilemma and Arkatext. Bone Thugs -N- Harmony plays Rogue Pizza Co. in Fayetteville Sunday night at 8 p.m., $20 adv., $25 d.o.s.
