Early Warnings Roundup

Posted By on 02.03.11 at 11:00 AM

This week's Early Warnings include a host of old-timers, among them hip-hop icon Ice Cube, who's taking a quick break from producing terribly unfunny family TV sitcoms to visit the Mid in March, and venerable country singer-songwriter Willie Nelson, who makes a rare appearance inside the city limits at the Chicago Theatre the same month. Other time-tested acts coming to town soon include the Fleshtones, Subhumans, Wanda Jackson, and Elvis Costello.

In the informal weekly show-announcements derby I run for my own amusement, Lincoln Hall dominated this round with the Black Angels, Crocodiles, the Fresh & Onlys, Low, Peter Bjorn & John, Phosphorescent, and the Raveonettes. Other notables include Human Eye at the Empty Bottle, Papercuts at Schubas, and Kamelot, Pinback, and Urge Overkill at Bottom Lounge (all on separate dates, of course).
