Geto Boys: Show Preview

The Geto Boys sure have had a weird trajectory. The Houston sons rose in the late 1980s, digging their lyrical fingernails deep into grim, grisly matter and becoming a pivotal name in early gangsta rap. These guys were wild enough to take a snapshot of themselves right after a gunshot permanently blinded Bushwick Bill in one eye, and made the picture a record cover. Then, the 1999 box office bomb Office Space became a hit on video, soon inextricably linking the Geto Boys to a white-collar comedy thanks to the flick's brilliant use of "Still" and "Damn It Feels Good to Be a Gangsta." Though the trio haven't released a record since 2005, they're touring for the first time in 22 years — an event that will no doubt draw crowd members who know the Boys firstly (and maybe only) from that movie with the stapler.
