Back at your desk after the long holiday break and looking to postpone doing any actual work for a few more minutes? We'll here's a diversion: Our recap of a very fun -- and filling -- Thanksgiving weekend.

Local H at the Firebird
On Wednesday night, music writer Bob McMahon was in the audience for the Local H show at the Firebird, with locals One Lone Car opening the show. McMahon writes of Local H's set: "Lucas boils rock down to its most thrilling aspects with catchy starts and stops ("BMW Man" "Cooler Heads"), dramatic vocals with sing-able melodies ("Hands on the Bible" "Fritz's Corner") and a steamrolling attack ("High-Fivin' MF"). The group effectively drew from its entire career, mixing material from last year's 12 Angry Months with the crowd pleasers and in the process demonstrating a consistency in sound and quality." Read the full review and see the set list in A to Z.
