Lee Scratch Perry at Flamingo. In the early ’70s, through a series of sonic experiments in his makeshift backyard studio lab in Jamaica, mad scientist Perry invented dub. After churning out countless musically adventurous and spiritually stirring songs from the island’s top talents including Bob Marley, he burned the studio to the ground, believing it had become inhabited by demons. Years later, his spacey, effects-laced version of reggae has given birth to numerous electronic offshoots, most notably dubstep, and Perry has remained one of the most colorful characters in modern music. $24. 8 p.m. doors. 515 E.
