PATO BANTON
9 p.m., Revolution. $12 d.o.s.

Pato Banton's name was a two-part endeavor. The reggae toaster from Birmingham, England, was dubbed Pato, "wise owl" in Kingston patois, by his father and "Banton," lingo for a great reggae DJ toaster, by the peers he left in the dust. The wise owl's been around the game for decades, having regularly worked on duets with Sting, an outspoken fan; collaborated with reggae god Mad Professor for his debut album, "Mad Professor Captures Pato Banton," and contributed to one of the best albums of the '80s, "Special Beat Service" by The (English) Beat. Reggae acts in Little Rock may be regular, but this good-vibe throwback show should be a thrill for the hot steppers, rood boys and sistren alike. Butterfly featuring Irie Soul opens.
