A friendly, festive get-together as much as a Friday-night show, “Thanksgiving II” offers a chance to cavort and imbibe with fellow townies stuck in town during the holidays. This year’s happening kicks off with a potluck dinner at 8 p.m., after which attendees will be treated to the sweet sounds of three excellent local acts. Songwriter Jim Wilson (TaxiCab Verses) will perform under his Diego Catalan moniker, playing covers and originals and backed by a one-time band that includes members of Pilgrim and the Olivia Tremor Control. Speaking of OTC, Pete Erchick will deliver a set of glorious psych-pop as Pipes You See, Pipes You Don’t. Finally, talented local songwriter Joe Cat rounds out the bill.
