Your local music options for the busiest barnight of the year

Every weekend without fail, HowWasTheShow's forum members start a thread to talk about the best goings on about town.  (Here's this weekend's, for example.)  This week however, is special.  IT HAS TWO FRIDAY NIGHTS, and one of them, also known this year as Wednesday, November 26th, has a reputation akin to both a Friday and a Saturday night put together.

In honor of Thanksgiving Eve, HowWasTheShow has assembled some cool places for you to spend what's often called the busiest barnight of the year. (Supposedly it's busier than New Year's Eve since on that night multitudes of private parties provide fierce competion for the clubs.) 

As with NYE, look out for amateurs!

What: Blackout Wednesday w/ Yer Cronies, Victory Ship, and Joey Ryan & the Inks
Where: Uptown Bar, 9PM $5

What: Transmission - DJ Jake Rudh's night before Thanksgiving Dance Party
Where: Clubhouse Jager, 9PM $0

What: Maudlin CD Release Party w/ The Hopefuls & So It Goes
