Early Warnings Roundup

This week's edition of Early Warnings features plenty of Pitchfork aftershows. At the Empty Bottle, Gang Gang Dance, Austra, and the Fresh & Onlys get in on the party. Schubas and Lincoln Hall have also announced "unofficial" aftershows, meaning certain bands just kind of happen to be playing during Pitchfork weekend—among them Tapes 'n Tapes, Yuck, Twin Sister, and Sun Airway.

Other notables this week include the Horrors at Lincoln Hall, Mayhem at Reggie's Rock Club, Liturgy at the Empty Bottle, Mr. Big (you heard me right) at House of Blues, and a few good shows in the Logan Square Summer Music in the Park series I blogged about last week.
