In this week's Early Warnings, there's a veritable roll call of metal at Reggie's Rock Club, including Municipal Waste, Enthroned, Destroyer 666, Forbidden, Evile, Nevermore, and Warbringer. Cock rockers Cinderella and Scorpions are coming to town too, as are veteran punks Nomeansno and Mission of Burma and hot-shit indie bands Bear in Heaven and Local Natives.

FitzGerald's American Music Festival, held in Berwyn from July 1 through July 4, features Bonerama, Joe Ely, Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers, Willie Nile, Trombone Shorty, James Hunter, and many more. The African/Caribbean International Festival of Life takes over Washington Park the same weekend (July 2 through July 5, to be exact) and includes Shaggy, Mighty Sparrow, Calypso Rose, and Gramps Morgan. And for those of you looking for a kitsch overload, Cans Music Fest (June 25 and 26) has booked Wang Chung and Coolio. That's right, you heard me.

Other notable announcements include My Morning Jacket at Charter One Pavilion, the Electric Six at Double Door, Fennesz at the Empty Bottle, and the Slackers at Bottom Lounge.
