Thanksgiving is upon us! Between the bouts of turkey-feastification, Drunksgiving alcohol consumption and familial re-unification, you may find yourself looking for something to do over the extendo-weekend. Look no further; we have what you need! Below is a list of the ten best Thanksgiving time shows from Wednesday night to Sunday. You'll notice that most of these shows fall on either Wednesday or Saturday, which makes sense: The former is the biggest bar night of the year and the latter is, well, a Saturday. Remember to drive safe this weekend; drunks and cops alike will be out in high numbers, offering potential personal peril of varying varieties. Check out all of our picks below!

The Stag Nite All Stars (covering the Last Waltz) 8:00 p.m. November 21 @ Off Broadway - Free Accept no substitutes. Too many years running to count, and it's free for the first time ever. If you want to see people covering the Last Waltz in St. Louis on Wednesday, I can't imagine why you'd go anywhere else. (KM)

Messy Jiverson 8:00 p.m. November 21 @ 2720 Cherokee - $10 Messy Jiverson is back! The jam legend went down before its time, but after fertile explorations, solo and in other bands, the gang's back together, though who knows for how long. Do not miss. (KM)

((Thorlock)) 10:00 p.m. November 21 w/ Modern Man @ Lemmons - $5 Cape Girardeau's ((Thorlock)) returns to Lemmon's to lay waste to the place with riff after pummeling riff. Local hardcore punk stalwarts Modern Man open the show and are also not to be missed. (DH)

Skarekrauradio 9:00 p.m. November 21 w/ The Conformists, Corrigan Brothers, Yowie @ The Heavy Anchor - $5 Assuredly the noisiest option for celebrating turkey day in the Lou this year. Climb out of that box and watch musical boundaries fade away. (DH)

Dubb Nubb 8:30 p.m. November 21 w/ Tim Gebauer, Adam Balbo, Curtain Co. @ Foam - $5 Everyone playing this show should be famous. And a few of them just might end up there, though they'd blush at the suggestion. Let's just call it the finest folk bill we've seen of late and call it a day. (KM)
