Twin Peaks
June 12
| Among the current wave of faded denim jackets in the "garage rock revival" is Twin Peaks, throwing jangly power-pop and Nuggets riffs into big-hooked, beer can-crushing anthems, including dueling guitars on two-minute ripper "Flavor," the single from 2014's Wild Onion (Grand Jury). Fever the Ghost and Freddy Beach open at 10 p.m. at Gasa Gasa.

Brandi Carlile
Tue. June 9 | Backed by harmony-hitting twin brothers Tim and Phil Hanseroth, Brandi Carlile's March album The Firewatcher's Daughter (ATO Records) draws from Roy Orbison's dramatic rock 'n' roll and heart-wrenching country, from the bare, stunning hair-raiser "I Belong to You" to the knuckle-cracking rocker "Mainstream Kid." Anderson East opens at 7 p.m. at House of Blues.

The Helio Sequence
Thu. June 11 | It took The Helio Sequence six albums to produce a self-titled one (issued in May on Sub Pop). Despite 15 years of recording together, the low-key rock duo is best known outside of Portland, Oregon, for Benjamin Weikel's drum-for-hire work in Modest Mouse. As the shimmering new LP shows, modesty has its virtues. Lost Lander opens at 9 p.m. at Gasa Gasa.

Mon. June 15 | As the tribal-masked, vowel-challenged SBTRKT, English electronic producer Aaron Jerome creates chilly, sultry club jams equal parts sexually charged and exsanguinated of emotion. His latest, 2014's Wonder Where We Land (Young Turks), features guest vocalists Ezra Koenig (Vampire Weekend) and Jessie Ware. At 10 p.m. at Republic.
