    Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, with Luck-One. El Corazon, 109 Eastlake Ave. E., 381-3094. 8 p.m. $35. All ages. Tell me what you gonna do, when there ain't nowhere to hide from a reunited Bone Thugs-n-Harmony. Kinetically-paced and Middle-America based, the Cleveland-born Thugs have been chasing their own tails for 15 years, harmonizing on bloated double-albums while trying, and failing, to duplicate the massive success they had with their first cut. E 1999 Eternal produced two sing-along jams - "1st of Tha Month" and "Tha Crossroads" -- the latter of which helped Krayzie, Wish, Flesh-N, Layzie and Bizzy earn that kiss-of-death award for hip-hoppers, a Grammy. Prodigal-son Bizzy is back after finding God, and the Harmonious ones are touring in support of Uni5: The World's Enemy. In conclusion: bone-bone-bone-bone, bone-bone, bone. CALEB HANNAN

    Bert Jansch & Pegi Young, with Jim Page. Triple Door, 216 Union St., 838-4333. 7:30 p.m. $25. All ages. Forty years in the game haven't slowed Scottish folk legend Bert Jansch, and he's currently touring in style, enlisting Neil Young's songwriter/guitarist wife Pegi to open for him. Pegi Young has a new album out later this month, while Jansch is touring on the back of Drag City's reissues of his out-of-print '70s albums L.A. Turnaround (which features the devastating classic "Needle Of Death," inspired by a younger generation's drug abuse), Santa Barbara Honeymoon and A Rare Conundrum. Jansch's 23rd album, The Black Swan, came out in 2006. Between that vast solo catalogue and his years as a member of Pentangle, Jansch is the rare influential figure who actually exceeds his reputation. DOUG WALLEN
