'Thxgvng Massacre!'-- Holy Grove, Lopez and friends in Portland

What better way to kick off -- and crank up -- the Thanksgiving holiday than a "Thxgvng Massacre!"?

We normally head to Gresham, Ore., from Seattle on Thanksgiving morning to visit family. But when Cousin Eric informed us that his/our friend Gregg Emley's band Holy Grove was playing the night before at the World Famous Kenton Club in Portland, we were in. Then, when we found out that TSHIT alumnus Lopez was also playing, it was a no-brainer squared.

To add to the stoner rock and punk stylings of Holy Grove and Lopez, respectively, we were treated to some heavy math rock from Duty and instrumental metal from the Fruit of the Legion of Loom.

Who needs turkey and pie when you can feast on this musical massacre?

Here's some of Cat's photos to document the evening:


In order: Vidal, drummer Craig Bradford, guitarist Sam Boggess and Emley.
