One of the coolest double bills I can remember is the top live music option on this very busy Thanksgiving eve. The Godz, Columbus rock legends who once rocked alongside KISS, Metallica and Motorhead, are playing the cozy confines of Carabar, 115 Parsons Ave. Joining Eric Moore and his monsters of rock will be Moore's son Alex and his hip-hop group Bootleggers. (Crazy that I've never blogged about Bootleggers before then they end up in the show previews two days in a row.) Wes Flexner elaborates on the details of this father-son gig in this Alive feature. This is a 10 p.m. show, and as with every show at Carabar, it's free.
Another worthy show that's unfortunately getting trumped by the Moore family: Darker My Love at The Summit, 2210 Summit St., with The Strange Boys and Eulogies. I've got a preview here, and Atomic Ned did an interview with Darker My Love that's worth checking out. This 9 p.m. show costs $8 in advance/$10 at the door.
Also worth noting: Semi Precious Weapons, a Brooklyn glam rock band with local ties (guitarist Aaron Lee Tasjan), will be at Rumba Cafe, 2507 Summit St. Details here.
