The Austin instrumental dub quintet Grimy Styles infuses its music with deeply engaging melodies, throbbing bass lines, soundboard-created effects, electronic noodling and solid percussion that's sure to please fans of King Tubby, Fela Kuti or Godspeed You Black Emperor. Grimy Styles formed in 2001 as a three-piece group with your standard bass, guitar and drums but has since become a five-piece ensemble that can get just plain dirty. 10 p.m. Last Concert Cafe, 1403 Nance.
