Jaunty and sanguine since giving up, well, some of the drugs he used to indulge in, Shaun Ryder and his new crew, Black Grape, provide the Happy Mondays shuffle with a ragga update on It’s Great When You’re Straight Yeah. All is not happy in paradise regained, of course: The band was barred from the U.S. last year because of its history of drug busts, and at last report “dancer” Bez was AWOL. Still, the beat-happy spirit of songs like “Kelly’s Heroes” and “In the Name of the Father” is undeniable, and sometimes it even renders Ryder’s glossolalia unexpectedly pungent: Was he straight when he slipped a few lines about Nazi sympathizers at the Vatican into “Reverend Black Grape”? At 10 p.m. at the 9:30 Club, 815 V St. NW. $12. (202) 393-0930. (Mark Jenkins)
