Squirrel Nut Zippers

Sat., April 27, 8 p.m.

Originally released way back in the summer of 1996, Squirrel Nut Zippers’ second album, Hot, defied all expectations. At the time, pop fodder from acts such as the Spice Girls ruled the airwaves. What a shock, then, when Hot yielded the hit single “Hell,” a song that featured woozy horns and a swinging bass riff. The album went on to sell 1.3 million copies and launch a veritable revival of swing music. Singer-guitarist Jimbo Mathus, who played in indie acts such as Metal Flake Mother and Johnny Vomit & the Dry Heaves prior to forming the Zippers, started the band with his then-wife Katharine Whalen. The group would splinter in 2000, but Mathus has revived the band and brings a retooled lineup to town tonight. (Niesel) $25 ADV, $28 DOS

Pete Seeger 100th Birthday Party Featuring John McCutcheon

Sat., May 4, 8 p.m.

Generally regarded as a master of the hammered dulcimer, McCutcheon only learned to play the instrument by happenstance. He had a girlfriend back in the early 1970s who went to a summer workshop at a West Virginia college. One of the classes was instrument building. They built a couple of different instruments. A hammered dulcimer was the first one. So on a visit to see her, McCutcheon learned to play it. More than any other instrument he’s ever played, he just took to it. That was a time when you couldn't just sign up for a class or go online and watch a YouTube video that would instruct you how to play an instrument. That kickstarted his career and he's just now issued his 40th album, a tribute to folk singer Pete Seeger. Tonight, McCutcheon will play Seeger songs alongside tracks from his other album. A multi-instrumentalist, he'll jam on guitar, banjo, piano, hammered dulcimer and more. (Niesel) $27 ADV, $32 DOS
