Turkey Day's just about here, but don't let all that tryptophan keep you tied to the couch. Plus, how likely is it that those out-of-town aunts and uncles will want to head out for a late night show?
Tonight, in mere hours, one-time Northwest band (and now South Carolina residents) Band of Horses play what's at least there fourth show at the Crystal Ballroom in the past year. Except this time, they actually have a new album to go with it.
Saturday night, Portland's own Menomena graces the stage at the Crystal Ballroom. Haven't checked them out before, but friends from Chicago tell me I need to go check 'em out.
Oh, and don't forget the reunited Presidents of the United States of America playing the Crystal Friday. Should be a peachy show.
Enjoy the bird - and the rock.
