Chicago transplants are departing in droves, driving or flying to their native nooks of the country to celebrate the holidays, but Early Warnings continue to trickle in. A handful are worth special note, including veteran English punk band the Adicts at Reggie’s Rock Club in March, multi-instrumentalist Olafur Arnalds at the Museum of Contemporary Art in late January, and avant-folk hippies Akron/Family at Lincoln Hall with Delicate Steve in late February.

Don’t forget to peruse the Reader’s Guide to New Year’s Eve, so that you can plan your festivities for the evening and maybe even have some backup options in place.
