For most of the noncooking population, the day before Thanksgiving is a day to leave work early and do absolutely nothing for the rest of the evening while your cooking family and/or friends work themselves into hysterics worrying about how long to cook a 12-pound turkey.
But for local hard-rock band Royal Bliss, this is the 10th straight year of performing the night before Thanksgiving, in what has become a "tradition," said frontman Neal Middleton.
It’s a gracious sentiment, considering that Middleton could be allowed to be bitter because he was robbed by the four clueless judges of "The Voice" earlier this year. But with new album "Waiting Out the Storm" out this year, Middleton is thankful that his band is still going strong. "We’re happy to be in control of our own destiny," he said.
VanMarter Project, American Hitmen, Joel Pack and The Pops will open.
When • Wednesday, 8 p.m.
Where • The Depot, 400 W. South Temple, Salt Lake City
Tickets • $20-$25 at SmithsTix
