Big Bad Voodoo Daddy swings through Concord

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, the band that launched into the mainstream with the hit indie flick “Swingers,” brings its retro hep-cat cool to the Captiol Center for the Arts in Concord for an 8 p.m. show Saturday. Last year marked the 20th anniversary of Big Bad Voodoo Daddy shaking up the music scene during the grunge era. The high-energy, nine-piece ensemble is out on the road in support of its latest release, 2012’s “Rattle Them Bones.” The band’s numerous television appearances over the years include “Dancing With The Stars,” “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” and “Last Call with Carson Daly.”

Opening this weekend’s show will be Tripping Souls, the brainchild of New England native Paul Makris. The group’s sound reflects Brit-rock influences including The Beatles, Paul Weller and Oasis, among others. Tickets are $35 and $45. For availability, call 225-1111 or visit www.ccanh.co
