• Lykke Li

This week’s batch of Early Warnings will probably be the last healthy crop before the end of the year, and it’s an impressive one. Big names include indie-pop darlings the Decemberists with Baltimore duo Wye Oak, Celtic-punk phenomenon Dropkick Murphys with Against Me!, Swedish singer Lykke Li, postpunk pioneers Wire, and Norwegian black-metal legends Immortal.

Also worth putting on your calendar for February: the absolutely bonkers Monotonix at the Empty Bottle, danktastic indie rockers Wavves at Lincoln Hall, alt-country vets the Old 97’s at the Vic, and what the hell, Slash at House of Blues.
