What To Do Thanksgiving weekend
If you're trying to avoid hanging out with insufferable high school acquaintances tonight, consider dancing to roeVy and CJ at Circus, rocking with Vug at Skully's or jumping through genres with Monta and Shaw at the Thirsty Ear. All three of those events get my unconditional endorsement. (Note: The Fool's Gold show at The Summit has been canceled.)
What about the rest of this Thanksgiving weekend?
Friday and Saturday's Motion Productions anniversary shows at Ravari Room, 2657 N. High St., should offer a good sample of local art metal and indie rock, with Wing & Tusk, Sleepers Awake, Phantods and The Thrashers performing Friday and Old Worlds, Bookmobile and Weezer cover band The Pinkertones taking the stage Saturday.
And I've been hearing good things about Cincy's Seedy Seeds (The Books + Mates of State?), who'll be at The Treehouse, 887 Chambers Rd., Friday.
For even stranger synth-y strains, Saturday is also the homecoming show for Columbus crabcore forefathers Attack! Attack!, teenage dudes from Westerville who captured some bizarre teenage zeitgeist to become one of the biggest bands in the country. (Remember this feature I wrote on 'em?) They'll be at the Newport, 1722 N. High St.
See you back here Monday. Have an exceedingly pleasant Thanksgiving.
