FUV's Thanksgiving tradition continues with The WFUV Feastival. It seems like we have more live music on FUV every year — from our Studio A sessions, Marquee shows and our "Summer of FUV" festival coverage — so our Thanksgiving feast of shows keeps getting bigger too.

Tonight, we kick things off at 6 p.m. EST by wishing Little Steven a "happy birthday" on FUV Live, followed by Holiday Cheer and Slingshot artist Lo Moon at Rough Trade NYC in their first-ever headlining show, and My Morning Jacket's two and a half hour set at Forest Hills Stadium from this summer.

It wouldn't be Thanksgiving without Arlo Guthrie's "Alice's Restaurant," so that tradition continues too, on Thanksgiving Day at noon. But before and after that — and on Friday too — performances come your way from Laura Marling to The National, Lake Street Dive to Kurt Vile & The Violators, and Randy Newman to Strand of Oaks.

You'll also hear songs from FUV Live 20 and performances from Holiday Cheer past throughout the Feastival, as we celebrate our latest live CD and get ready for this year's Holiday Cheer for FUV. (Just in case you hadn't heard, it's December 15 at The Beacon Theatre with Aimee Mann, Randy Newman, Jeff Tweedy and Lo Moon — there are a few tickets left here).

Have a Happy Thanksgiving, and as you relive these amazing live music moments, we hope you hear how thankful we are too! Thank you to the artists and their teams, all the venues and festivals, and of course, to our WFUV Members for making another great year of FUV Live performances possible.
