Monday, Feb. 18

Turisas Fronted by wonderfully named vocalist Mathias "Warlord" Nygård, this Finnish folk-metal band features electric violin solos and performs in costumes that resemble Mel Gibson in Braveheart wearing football pads. With Firewind, Stolen Babies, Phalgeron, Avoid the Void. Studio Seven. 6:30 p.m. $16 adv./$18 DOS. All ages.

Tuesday, Feb. 19

Terry Robb Band A top-notch guitarist, Robb is currently at work on an album of traditional Catholic hymns arranged for acoustic guitar. With his band, he tends toward traditional blues fare. With Ethan Tucker, Brad Mackeson. Nectar Lounge. 8 p.m. $6 adv./$8 DOS.

Wednesday, Feb. 20

The Deer Tracks The Swedish duo of David Lehnberg and Elin Lindfors are touring behind the final installment of their The Archer Trilogy, a varied set of The Knife-esque electronica recorded in 2010. With Magic Wands, Fey Moth. Sunset Tavern. 7:30 p.m. $8.

Thursday, Feb. 21

Chastity Belt headlines this well-curated lineup of off-kilter rock, their bare-bones punk nicely complementing the fuzzed-out garage-pop of Blooper and Neighbors as well as Marvelous Good Fortune's fairy-prog keyboard odysseys. Columbia City Theater. 8 p.m. $8.

Friday, Feb. 22

Camper Van Beethoven Icons of the '80s underground, when the phrase "college rock" actually meant something, David Lowery's singular rock group is celebrating its 30th anniversary as well as the release of La Costa Perdida, its eighth album. With Casey Neill & The Norway Rats. Tractor Tavern. 9:30 p.m. $15 adv./$18 DOS.

Saturday, Feb. 23

Grave Babies Crusher, the debut full-length on Hardly Art that Grave Babies will release at this show, maintains the group's penchant for dense, noise-inflected punk songs, while sneaking some warped pop gems ("Over and Under Ground") amid the chaos. The album is a marginally more polished, lateral move for the band, but its name does capture the pulverizing reputation of its live shows. With Crypts, Vice Device, Youryoungbody. Highline. 9 p.m. $7.

Sunday, Feb. 24

The Wailers Anyone with cursory knowledge of rock history knows The Wailers' claim to fame: like The Band, The Crickets, or The E Street Band, they were the backing group to a transcendent musical figure. The trailblazing reggae group has remained active in the 30-plus years since Bob Marley's death, even playing on a No. 1 country single from Kenny Chesney in 2008. With Roger Steffens. Neptune Theatre. 7 p.m. $22.50 adv./$25 DOS. All ages.
