San Diego's good son DJ Greyboy played a significant part in cultivating the West Coast acid jazz and rare groove scenes in the early '90s--which in turn led to his present-day explorations in jazz-inspired hiphop. Sharpshooters' DJ Sureshot is also on the bill, so this should be an evening of smooth, solid grooves. Baltic Room, 1207 Pine St, 625-4444, 9:30 pm-2 am, 21+, $10.
FRIDAY JUNE 6
STYLUS: WALLY CALLERIO AND RICK PRESTON

Also on the bill is Viva Records' Rick Preston. Deep Down Lounge, 126 S Jackson St, 682-3242, 9 pm-2 am, 21+, $5 before 11 pm.
