Tonight in Live Music, Tuesday, August 5

Tonight looks good for those who like, well, beats. Beyond a regular open mike, tonight's picks involve hip-hop, reggae, and the blues. -- Arielle Castillo

*Up-and-coming Broward County MC Swazy Styles travels south across the county line to hit Flavour, in Coconut Grove. Nice to know this underused performance space might kick back into gear (where art thou, onetime punk show promoters who booked this place all the time?). Click here to read more about the gig.

*The Open Mike Gong Night continues at the Chocolate Moose in Davie. Kudos to those brave enough to enter. Click here for more details.

*The blues stylings of both Albert Castiglia and Graham Drout are always a safe bet. Both play tonight at Tobacco Road.

*Need a reggae fix? Head to the appropriately chilled-out Bougainvillea's Old Florida Tavern, which is getting a weekly Tuesday reggae night under way. Don Sha and the Lalibela band play, with DJ DrasticX on the decks between sets.
