Early Warnings Roundup

Not too many new show announcements tend to come along in the five short days between Christmas and New Year's Eve. Promoters and bookers take vacations and enjoy the holidays, and who can blame them?

But though this week's crop of Early Warnings is a bit skimpy, the announcements I did scrounge up are actually pretty impressive—so get your calendar out. Ty Segall, Glassjaw, and Steve Ignorant of Crass all appear on my list of notables. In February, Motorhead plows through the Congress Theater with Clutch and Valient Thorr, and the Detroit Cobras tear up the Double Door. And the individual shows in Screeching Weasel's 25th anniversary festival in May go on sale New Year's Day at noon; the three-day blowout includes Screeching Weasel (duh), the Queers, the Riverdales, Chixdiggit, and Teenage Bottlerocket.

Check out the full rundown after the jump:

Detroit Cobras with Hollows at Double Door on February 5 (on sale Saturday at noon)
Disappears with Brain Idea at the Empty Bottle on February 4
