Tonight: TRUST: BBQ Edition at the Red Lion, Indian Ocean at Neumos

TRUST: BBQ Edition. Red Lion Inn Terrace Garden, 1415 Fifth Ave., 206-971-8010. 2 p.m. Free. Sure, you're already planning the summer's baddest BBQ at your house, but this free outdoor party (or "sundance" as we said in my raver days) is on a roof. Take in the skyline while grooving to a reggae/house/hip-hop/electro/whateva mash-up of good vibes. DJ Mr. Supreme, who's likely witnessed more than one Paris Hilton table dance at his posh bookings in Miami and Vegas, guest DJ'd the July TRUST. He said on his blog "I can't remember the last time I had this much fun DJ'n"--partly because the Belltown Bettys weren't asking him to play Tre Songz (I paraphrase) all night long. Showing off more of his creativity, he'll play a set of all 45s today. Kid Hops and SunTzu Sound are joined by KEXP's Riz, Trashy Trash/Stop Biting maestro Introcut, and Carlos Mendoza of Lawn Chair Generals. Classic BBQ grub will be served. RACHEL SHIMP

Indian Ocean. Neumos, 925 E. Pike St., 709-9467. 6 p.m. $25. The salty air, the coasts of many continents, swirling warm tides, a vast and mysterious expanse--it's all in Indian Ocean's music as much as it is in their namesake. The renowned Indian fusion band has been blending traditional Indian sounds with jazz, rock and other moods since the '80s, but after unexpectedly losing their longtime drummer to cardiac arrest last December, this tour promises to be a powerful turning point.
