Black Weekend show picks: White Mystery, Bear Hands and more

Posted by Andrew

White Mystery
What am I thankful for? Family and friends of course, but living in a city that’s home to a strong music scene is at the top of the list as well. Plenty of local talent we’ve showcased on the site before are sticking around home for the holiday weekend and some are even giving back with free shows; the best deals aren't found only at retail outlets, folks. Check out our Thanksgiving weekend picks. Enjoy:

  1. Ha! Glad I read this! We were planning on going to see King Sparrow this brain must have flipped. I don't know why for the past few weeks I've been assuming their show is this Saturday. We shall be there tonight.
