Library Science is a great name—like dub itself, it sounds soulful and geeky at the same time. This Seattle trio plays a poppier, more electronic version of that slow, low Jamaican music. Occasional vocals ground the songs and luscious reverb bounces them back into dark, gaping chasms. Sometimes they sound like orchestral pop, with regal horn lines flapping like standards as a guitar rocks and a shuffling breakbeat rolls. (Rendezvous, 2322 Second Ave, 441-5823. 10:30 pm, $5, 21+.)
