Locals who decided to stay in town for Thanksgiving weekend got quite the treat this past weekend, as a slew of great Valley acts entertained people in-between bites of turkey. On Thanksgiving Eve, at The Sail Inn in Tempe, The Black Moods, Black Carl and What Laura Says performed on two stages. And on Friday night at Yucca Tap Room in Tempe, Ryan Taverna celebrated his album release party with Snow Songs and Tobie Milford. Check out video of what you missed after the jump.
