This week's most exciting Early Warnings include indomitable Japanese garage punks Guitar Wolf at Bottom Lounge with Cheap Time, dubstep monster Rusko at the Congress Theater, hometown punk heroes Rise Against at the Aragon Ballroom with Bad Religion, and the charming Tune-Yards at Lincoln Hall with the possibly even more charming Buke & Gass.

The award for the most super spectacular, obscenely expensive megaconcert announced this week goes to Lil Wayne, who'll perform at the United Center on a bill with Nicki Minaj, Travis Barker, and Rick Ross.
