Markus Schulz will be throwing down again this year for Thanksgiving Eve

While Thanksgiving and Black Friday steal all the headlines, the holiday that's really worth celebrating this week is Thanksgiving Eve, the biggest party night of the year next to New Year's Eve. It's the ultimate ruse: You can go way too hard raging all night with your old friends -- who, oddly, all happen to be back in town -- and the next day you can either hair-of-the-dog it, chugging a box of wine with Grandma, or you can sleep the whole thing off on the couch and blame it on the tryptophan. See? Told ya. Perfect! With that in mind, we've put together a comprehensive list of all the music, good times and inevitable debauchery that awaits you tomorrow night. Keep reading to see what's good, and, as always, feel free to chime in if we happened to miss anything.
