Above: The video for Two Gallants’ “Incidental,” from the new album “We Are Undone.” The duo of Adam Stephens and Tyson Vogel have had a tumultuous tour — their van was burgled and all their gear stolen in Philadelphia, and this weekend van troubles forced cancellation of a show in New Orleans. If all goes well, they’ll play the Roxy on Saturday night.

Our six-pack of shows for your week:

► The dual residency Monday night at the Echo is pretty good fare itself — the Moth & the Flame and Freedom Fry are sharing the free nights. This week, Irontom supports, and there is a surprise guest in store for Freedom Fry’s set.
► Busy week for Dead Sara, who recently released their sophomore album “Pleasure to Meet You.” They’re doing an in-store at Amoeba on Monday, then headlining the Troubadour on Tuesday and Wednesday. Catch ’em if you can.
► The legendary Waterboys are headlining the Fonda Theatre on Wednesday behind their new “Modern Blues,” their first album of original material in eight years. (Their 2011 release “An Appointment with Mr Yeats” drew from the poetry of W.B. Yeats.) See Mike Scott and gang while you can.
Fool’s Gold’s new album “Flying Lessons” comes in for a landing this month. And so does the L.A. tropi-pop favorites, Thursday at the Troubadour.
► I had the darnedest time finding a copy of Lord Huron’s new album “Strange Trails,” but when I did, I found it really good. They’re playing their first local show since its release, Saturday at the Wiltern. Saddle up.
► And my below-the-radar pick: Why aren’t Magic Bronson a bigger thing? Their album “Wildlife” is a funky, wry, slightly stoned and danceable hoot. The L.A. duo is doing a Friday night residency at 3 Clubs, if you wanna get cozy with somebody named Bronson.
