CRITIC’S PICK: It’s always a party when Atlanta rockers Blackberry Smoke come home for their annual Thanksgiving shows. At this point, they are probably the most famous local rock band who still resides here, which makes this yearly gig a sure sellout. You never know who frontman/founder Charlie Starr will invite to share the fun, but it’ll be someone who shares his respect for the history of Southern rock and the part Smoke plays in exporting it to a national and international audiences. Better still, they will likely feature songs from an upcoming 2024 release Be Right Here with a cover featuring a replica of Atlanta’s skyline. — Hal Horowitz
