Rocksteady8, Strangeways in concert (9 p.m., Orpheum, 1902 Avenida Republica de Cuba, Ybor City, $5). Rocksteady8 comprises members of local ska luminaries Strangeways and Magadog plus defunct soukous band Amandla Tunesmith, and, yes, they're all about that classic strain of reggae, rocksteady, and in particular, the brand that famed Studio One producer Clement "Coxsone" Dodd minted. Strangeways, a third-wave ska revival band based in Sarasota, has charmed audiences in Florida and around the country with the upbeat material heard on Corporate Monkey, released in 1998 on the nationally distributed Moon Ska Records. DJ Jah Robson will also spin. Call (813) 248-9500.
