About a month ago, Roy Carrier‘s son Chubby brought his rock-and-blues-inflected zydeco to the area; tonight and tomorrow, Pops, along with his Zydeco Night Rockers, brings his version of the style back to town. Roy likes the blues too, but his more traditional take on the rhythmic genre should please zydeco dancing purists even more than the one offered by his progeny. Carrier Sr. performs tonight at 8 p.m. at Glen Echo Park’s Spanish Ballroom, 7300 MacArthur Blvd., Glen Echo. $10. (301) 492-6282; and tomorrow at 5 p.m. at Tornado Alley, 11319 Elkin St., Wheaton. $7. (301) 929-0795. (Steve Kiviat)
