Orlando concerts picks this week: Modest Mouse, Bryan Adams, Damian Marley and more 


Finnish "metal cello" quartet play a rare Florida show as part of their tour marking the anniversary of their debut album, a surprising suite of Metallica covers. Take your parents ... OK, grandparents.

7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 6, at the House of Blues, $38.50

CANCELLED Dark Tranquility

Gothenberg death metal overlords (you can thank them for At the Gates and In Flames) touch down in Central Florida. Way more tuneful than they have any right to be.

7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 7, at the Haven Lounge, $20-$65

CANCELLED Modest Mouse

Indie-rock vets Modest Mouse hit the road hard this year like they've got something to prove. Might be your last chance to see them for a good bit.

7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 8, at Hard Rock Live, $45-$55

CANCELLED Terror Pigeon

Weirdo dance party! Itinerant electro-freaks throw down at Stardust in the company of locals Absolute Fantasy and Guttergirl.

7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 9, at Stardust Video & Coffee, $3


On this, the summer of '69 (+48), reliable rocker Bryan Adams throws down at the fairgrounds. Let the waves of soothing nostalgia flow over you.

8 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 10, at Orlando Amphitheater, $43-$225

CANCELLED Japanese Breakfast

Philadelphian dreampop ensemble returns to the City Beautiful after a scorching set opening for (Sandy) Alex G in the recent past; the bill is all-killer with Mannequin Pussy and Spirit of the Beehive along for the ride.

8 p.m. Monday, Sept. 11, at Will's Pub, $12-$15

POSTPONED Damian Marley

Reggae royalty in every sense of the word, but Marley is also a songwriting and performing force in his own right.

7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 12, at the House of Blues, $32.50
