Seven years ago at Bumbershoot, Jamaican dub innovator Lee “Scratch” Perry wore a glittery silver hat adorned with burning incense sticks and cackled like a madman for most of his set (some of it was entertaining, and his call to ban cigarettes and legalize ganja was sensible and prescient). But now the 79-year-old Perry has a new backing band, the Subatomic Sound System, and they provide super-heavy bass pressure and supple rhythmic heft to his grizzled hectoring. Bet your bong that SSS will reverently bolster their legendary frontman with a buoyantly gravid foundation. DAVE SEGAL
