DH: Spending it with the band and Andy Hull and his family.
KD: Well, first I’m coming to Atlanta and playing at The Stuffing. Then, I fly home the following morning to have Thanksgiving dinner at my brother’s house in Jersey. We’ll end up in Boston on Friday at my girlfriend’s mom’s for a kind of 2nd dinner. Busy bees.
BJ: Playing a big ass show and then getting on a big ass plane that will take me north.
Describe your perfect Thanksgiving meal.
DH: I don’t like turkey… So usually mashed potatoes with some peas, salad, and some cornbread and cranberry sauce.
KD: Well, I’m vegetarian so, though I love the taste and have an abiding respect for tradition, it’d most be meat-free and heavy on the sides. Mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberries, yams, creamed peas, biscuits, mad pies, etc. Thanksgiving food is “too dope” (TM).
BJ: A big ass ham, turkey, mashed taters, loads of gravy. Fugg the green stuff.
What’s your most memorable Thanksgiving?
DH: When my vegetarian mother thought tofurkey would be a good idea. My father was not pleased.
KD: Maybe 2003, after my dad had passed. It was the first big holiday after his death, my just-born nephew was sick, my brother said a really beautiful and intense grace before the meal. That is the first one that leaps to mind.
BJ: The one from last year, nothing happened, I just don’t really remember any past that.
What are you the most thankful for?
DH: My family, my wife, my band, and mike Marquis
KD: The people in my life. Feel very lucky for them.
BJ: To not have to have a real job right now and of course the big ass jesus.
