Squirrel Nut Zippers
Sat. July 30 | Perennial favorite (but only sporadically active) blast-from-the-past swing revivalists Squirrel Nut Zippers return for the first time since 2009's live Lost at Sea, promising Jimbo Mathus, Chris Phillips, Ingrid Lucia and "other members." Andrew Bird-watching, anyone? At 10 p.m. at Tipitina's.

Inter Arma
Sun. July 31 | A cage-rattling opener in recent years for metal heavies Black Tusk, KEN mode and Russian Circles, Richmond, Virginia hangmen Inter Arma get their New Orleans spotlight with this headlining gig for Paradise Gallows (Relapse), sure to be among the loudest in Gasa Gasa's existence. Withered and Something's Burning open at 9 p.m.

Happy Diving
Mon. Aug. 1 | From the first of several feedback-ridden introductions to each nasally, heart-on-sleeve verse, August's Electric Soul Unity (Top Shelf Records) has all the huge, quiet-loud guitars and endless hooks of '90s nostalgia worship without the saccharine aftertaste. New Orleans punks and Top Shelf labelmates Donovan Wolfington also are on the bill with Boyish Charm and Foozle at 10 p.m. at Saturn Bar.
