THUR 11/26: Turkey Day

I hope everyone has a happy and wonderfully gluttonous and thankful day.

My favorite Thanksgiving-themed news item? Supervisor Admits Throwing Turkeys At Employees To "Motivate" Them.

9am, 4pm
"Alice's Restaurant Massacree": Thanksgiving Broadcast
at WERS, 88.9FM

Way back in 1965, Arlo Guthrie celebrated Thanksgiving out in the Berkshires. As hippies they were often oppressed by "The Man", so he and a friend were arrested for 'littering'.

It's kind of funny -- and it goes on for more than 18 minutes -- so I might listen whille doing my Thanksgiving prep...

Thanksgiving Meal
at Great Scott, 1222 Comm Ave, Allston
Free / All Ages

For almost 20 years, Great Scott has hosted a free Thanksgiving turkey and fixins dinner for anyone who wants to come for whatever reason.

Several hundred people usually show, so you'll have some company...

It was previously listed as starting at 2pm, now it's noon. They will probably be serving for a while.

Bitches Brew
at Alchemist Lounge, 435 S. Huntington Ave, Jamaica Plain

Let's give thank to these local jazz vets that bring us live music every Thanksgiving, and you can give thanks for having something to do if you want to escape a feast that has gone on too long...

Our local Miles Davis tribute band is tweaking their tradition a bit. Their keyboardist won't be there this year. Instead of just tunes from the "Miles goes electric" era, they'll be blowing through a lot of standards. Alto saxophonist Nancy Loedy will also be joining the guys.
