Smart Bets: Passafire

When you think of reggae you probably don't immediately consider the tropical breezes of Savannah, Ga., or the production techniques of various enduring punk bands. But Passafire might just change that. The Savannah-based reggae-rockers (formed in 2003 by SCAD students) just-released fourth album Start From Scratch under the tutelage of Butthole Surfers, Sublime and Meat Puppets producer Paul Leary. Critics are calling it the band's best effort to date. Passafire plays the indoor stage at Pisgah Brewing Company on Tuesday, Sept. 20 (Start’s official drop date, FYI). Jimkata opens. 8 p.m., $8.
