S U N D A Y

The jazz-hiphop-reggae saunter and “Howl”-ing recitations of Soul Coughing can be a little precious, but this latter-day beat combo gets a “B” for effort—and an “N” for random noise. The very L.A. quartet opens for the John Spencer Blues Explosion, which twangs some nice Delta-punk/punk-jazz grooves on its new Orange, but is marred by the sort of self-conscious brattiness that’s been a Spencer handicap ever since P. Galore. At 7:30 p.m. at the 9:30 Club, 930 F St. NW. $8. (202) 393-0930. (MJ)
