If you’re feeling estranged (or even just strange) this holiday, the Blue Rock Tavern’s Thanksgiving Eve Massacre/State of the People Music & Spoken Word Showcase is the place to connect with others who share your queasy discontent.
The party kicks off with spoken word performances by Abiyah (Hip Hop poetess), Nathan Singer (A Prayer Before Dawn author) and Shawn Abnoxious (Punk poet); readings by Jughead (of SS-20), Nick Barrows, Chuck Byrd and Betsy Young follow.
Then it’s music time. Punk is the sound of the night with the rebel yells of SS-20, Pike, The Serfs (a Celtic Punk fusion act), Loudmouth and F.R.A.
Spoken word starts at 8 p.m.; music starts at 10 p.m.
