New Orleans' leading "Big" bands share more twisted branches than an Appalachian family tree. Big Rock Candy Mountain singer/songwriter Michael Girardot, guitarist Andrew Hartsock and bassist Stephen MacDonald either played alongside or immediately followed Big History (pictured) singer/songwriter Matt Glynn, guitarist Blandon Helgason and bassist Cory Schultz in prior configurations of area rockers Glasgow and the defunct Antenna Inn. So expect a convivial, if somewhat confusing, lineup at this tempo-ramping joint bill with Long Beach, Calif.'s The Red River, whose violin- and piano-voiced slow-motion pop songs — a spitting image of a youthful Grandaddy — open the show. The interrelated Bigs close in different directions: Big History's click-calibrated, spit-shined club tracks and Big Rock Candy Mountain's rainbow-bright, guitar-neck-wringing power pop. Tickets $7. — Noah Bonaparte Pais
