A ceaseless stream of trustafarian bands from Southern California has made it easy to forget how reggae was once a vital, innovative and often intensely political art form. Britain's Steel Pulse, a product of Birmingham's primarily Afro-Caribbean Handsworth neighborhood, became favorites on the Rock Against Racism circuit with "Ku Klux Klan," a single that cloaked its strident lyrics in cool harmonies and danceable rhythms. Some 10 albums later, the Grammy-winning band is still at it, commemorating the second anniversary of Trayvon Martin's slaying last month with "Put Your Hoodies On." Expect both songs, plus a lot more, tonight at the Ogden Theatre (935 E. Colfax Ave., Denver, ogdentheatre.com). Tickets for the 8 p.m., 16-and-over show are $30 in advance, $35 at the door. — Bill Forman
