Your Ante/Anti-Thanksgiving Fun Binge


It's the last weekend before this November holiday, Thanksgiving, for which you're expected do horrible things like eat cranberries and pretend to enjoy watching hours of teevee footage of oversized balloons being stuffed in between buildings in New York City. Probably best to cram as much actual fun into this weekend as possible. Lucky for you there's David Rees, Cornel West, and the French Kicks, right here in DC this weekend.


  • Jammy cult-figures Umphrey's McGee will be playing ("improvising," as they call it) at the 9:30 Club for two days starting tonight. Prices vary; 8 PM. [9:30 Club]
  • More of that recent Clintons: Redux you've been hearing so much about at Politics & Prose, as Vernon Jordan takes the stage to promote his new book Make It Plain. [Politics & Prose]
