MON 11/24: "Free For All" - A Thanksgiving Benefit

Thick Shakes, Barnicle
at Great Scott, 1222 Comm Ave, Allston
$5 online or at door

In past years, I think I've suggested that people could go down to Great Scott for the free Thanksgiving feast, and now they could use a little help. I'll let Carl from Great Scott explain:

As many of you may know, for the past 18 years Great Scott has hosted a free Thanksgiving turkey and fixins dinner for anyone who wants to come for whatever reason.

In the past, local merchants have been amazing in donating the bulk of the funds, along with individual donations, that it takes to feed up to 400 people.

This sudden and frightening economic downturn has understandably put a dent in how much we were able to collect and we're hoping that we could get an infusion of small donations to ensure that there's enough food so nobody is left with an empty plate.

This is all very last minute... But in the meantime (and regardless) if anyone finds themselves near Great Scott and wants to drop a few bucks in the jar it'd be massively appreciated in ways it would be hard to express electronically.
So on very short notice, Thick Shakes and Barnicle are going to play tonight. I've enjoyed listening to both bands at various times. This could be a good spur-of-the moment destination that adds good karma. Stop by after partying with Three Day Threshold!

(If one was inclined, they could purchase a ticket online to help the cause whether or not they can go...)
