Rusko performs at the Old Rock House this Saturday.

Local reunions are the "in" thing right now, and Thanksgiving week doesn't disappoint. The Stag Nite All Stars will return this Wednesday to pay tribute to the Band - a fitting concert for Thanksgiving eve (otherwise known as the "drunkest night of the year"). If you're not glued to the couch via food coma on Thursday, Fragile Porcelain Mice play their pulverizing rock at Pop's. And, as usual, the whole weekend is jammed packed with plenty of choices for music lovers. Choosing between Ha Ha Tonka and Jay Farrar on Friday will be a bummer for some - but that's not a bad problem to have.

Kentucky Knife Fight plays its final show this Saturday at Off Broadway.

Don't let snowfall ruin your good time. This city has a tendency to panic every time a flake hits the ground, but fret not, the road is still here for those brave enough to venture out for good music. Shaggy and the Urge are just a few highlights for the week ahead, but we want to make a special recommendation for Kentucky Knife Fight's final performance on Saturday at Off Broadway -- this is your last chance to catch one of St. Louis' most underrated bands.

Dope Body plays Plush this Sunday with Roomrunner and more.

Ten days into November, and I haven't seen a single mention (or picture) of "No Shave November." Wonderful -- I'm really glad we, as a culture, were able to resist ingesting the same meme year after year. Really, you could sub the word "shave" for anything else. Let's see you try "No Pants November" in this cold. I have a better idea: Let's go out, every night. Like the cheesy name of this column, I challenge you to not miss a single show on this list. You'll have to show hop on Friday and Saturday, but you'll be able to brag about your worldly, diverse tastes.

Primus plays the Peabody Opera House on Wednesday.

This week we bring you sweaty garage rock, theatrical jams and plenty of kitsch (Pizza Underground anybody?). Although there's plenty of shows out there with a party vibe, heady acts like Mincemeat or Tenspeed come through to provide focused experiments in sound. If you're a music nerd or just looking for a mid-week break, we've got you covered for the next 7 days.

Carcass - November 2 at Pop's

Cover bands might be shunned outside of their native bar gigs and tribute nights, but Halloween gives us all a chance to be something we're not. On Friday, Melt hosts a full lineup of local punk and psych bands covering a huge range of genres, while We Bite! A Tribute to the Misfits hits the Firebird. Catch the Schwag and its Grateful Dead jams at 2720 on Friday or Saturday.

In keeping with the spirit of the season, I wonder if juggalos will show up to the ICP show on Tuesday clean-faced, wearing freshly pressed polos. Even if you're not a fan of the ghoulish holiday, there's still a lot to love in this week's list of recommended shows.
