Police Teeth 

When: Sun., Feb. 19, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: free

As album titles go, AwesomerThan the Devil, the name of the latest release from Seattle-Bellingham Police Teeth is not only, well, awesome, it's also a crystal-clear example of truth in advertising. Because this three-piece is, indeed, awesomer than the devil (whatever that means) as well as just about anything else it may be put up against, with a fearlessly loud psych- and pop- inflected post-punk sound that contains shades of Les SavyFav, Superchunk, and The Thermals, but better. In Seattle, these guys are as well known for their punishing riffs as they are for their tendency to force audiences to finish a fifth of whiskey before they'll start playing.  Though you may come with liver and eardrums intact when they play Vitus (201 Broadway, Oakland) on Sunday, Feb. 19, you'll likely leave with neither. In an awesome way. 9 p.m., free. VitusOakland.com
