Early Warnings Roundup



Sleigh Bells
  • Sleigh Bells
The upcoming Labor Day weekend means there's not much to report on the Early Warnings front. On-sale announcements are sparse, presumably because venues and promoters assume you'll be busy killing cans of Bud around a campfire out in the sticks while waiting for your next burger to come off the grill (my exact weekend plans, by the way).

"Sparse" isn't the same as "none," though, and even this week's slimmed-down Early Warnings include David Dondero at Schubas, soul master Syl Johnson with a 14-piece band at the Old Town School of Folk Music, fashion-conscious electro-club kids LMFAO at Congress Theater, and hype magnets Sleigh Bells at Metro.

Check out a more comprehensive list after the jump:

David Dondero with the Moaners at Schubas on November 22
Drink Up Buttercup at Subterranean on September 26
