Saturday To-Do: The Geto Boys



$10 adv., $15 before midnight, more later. Discovery. Late.

Mike "Mandonna" Brown has had a strong streak of bookings over the last few months at Discovery — DJ Muggs, DJ Paul, Yung Joc, 8 Ball & MJG and Mike Jones, among others, usually hosted by personnel from Power 92.

But this latest one is a real doozy: The Geto Boys, featuring the main trio of Willie D, Bushwick Bill and Scarface. This Houston crew was largely responsible for not only the horrorcore subgenre, with its focus on shocking subject matter, but for putting Southern hip-hop on the map with classics like "My Mind Playing Tricks on Me," "6 Feet Deep" and "Damn it Feels Good to be a Gangsta."

And after seeing it even just once, who could forget the album cover for their breakout "We Can't Be Stopped," with Bushwick Bill getting wheeled into the hospital after he just got his dadgum eye shot out by a girlfriend. Well, here's your chance to see some true hip-hop pioneers. They go onstage at 2:30 a.m. or thereabouts, so wear your stayin'-out-late pants, assuming that's something you own. Advance tickets are $10 at or it's $15 before midnight at the door, but if you wait until fashionably late o'clock, they're liable to run you a bit north of $15.
