Thanksgiving is fundamentally a time for gathering among family and enjoying that epic turkey dinner. But for many it also marks one of the first big four day weekends before the end of the year. And because of that very reason it usually starts off with a bang that has made Thanksgiving Eve one of the biggest nights of drinking and festivity. That’s no exception in Philadelphia and there are a lot of huge events going. Here’s a look at what you might want to consider.

WMMR Presents Gobblaroo 2009

Each year Philadelphia’s leading rock station hosts a series of Thanksgiving themed events at several different locations, and each event is hosted by their leading DJs. And this year is going to be no exception. The hosts of their popular morning show, Preston & Steve host comedian’s Dave Attell, Jeffrey Ross, and Greg Giraldo. Local music supporter Jaxon rallies Philly bands Ike, Jealousy Curve, Automatic Fire, and Zelazowa at the Theatre of Living Arts. Finally iconic DJ Pierre Robert hosts legendary rockers Beru Revu at World Cafe Live.

Jim Breuer’s Thanksgiving Eve Throwdown

Uproarious funnyman Jim Breuer is no stranger to rock and has based most of his comedy routine around it. so it makes sense that 94.1 WYSP is hosting his performance at the Keswick Theatre. He is currently touring in support of his brand-new Comedy Central special Let’s Clear The Air. So it should be pretty huge.

Fuzed Funk at Fluid Nightclub Featuring Utah Jazz

Luke Wilson AKA Utah Jazz, is one of the original liquid funksters. He started mixing Drum & Bass whilst still at school, inspired by LTJ Bukem & Alex Reece and his DJ career soon blossomed – randomly adopting the name ‘Utah Jazz\’ from the US Basketball team to showcase his preference for the mid 90s ‘Jazz-Jungle\’ sound.

In 2008, his debut album ‘It\’s A Jazz Thing\’ was released worldwide to both commercial and critical acclaim – cementing Utah Jazz\’s position as one of the major cross-over D&B artists this side of the millennium. Pipped at the post by worthy winners Chase & Status, ‘It’s A Jazz Thing’ was also the 2nd highest placed Drum & Bass album in Mixmag’s famous 2008 Top 50 poll, with Pendulum coming in 3rd.

Released through Bryan G\’s seminal V Recordings camp (the first home of Roni Size & DJ Marky) with radio and club support from the likes of Trevor Nelson, Zane Lowe, Annie Mac, LTJ Bukem, Fabio, Andy C, Goldie and Gilles Peterson – the global impact of ‘It\’s A Jazz Thing\’ has also now made Utah Jazz one of the most in demand selectors on the international D&B circuit.

Since the release of ‘It’s A Jazz Thing’, Utah Jazz has now joined the likes of High Contrast & Danny Byrd as one D&B’s leading remixers with reworks for Wiley (Atlantic Records / Warner), Tricky (Domino Records), Lethal Bizzle (Search & Destroy / V2), Jonny L (Nero Records), Serani (Island Records / Universal) & Yo Majesty.

He’ll also be joined by usual Fuzed Funk DJs Armen and Jason Magin; as well as emcees Armanni, Sharpness, and Mis-Ty.
