This week in Early Warnings: the shambling remains of Ozzy Osbourne, shirtless 63-year-old Iggy Pop, the inaugural Neon Marshmallow Fest of experimental music and noise, and much more.

Other big announcements include Vampire Weekend with Beach House (can shows actually sell out before they go on sale?), Baroness with Torche, disco supergroup Gayngs (featuring Bon Iver's Justin Vernon, rapper P.O.S., and others), and Billy Idol.

The Old Town School of Folk Music is also putting tickets to a handful of impressive summer shows on sale this Friday at 9 AM, among them Sun Kil Moon's Mark Kozelek, Argentinian songstress Juana Molina, the Fruit Bats, and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.
