8 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Portland House of Music, 25 Temple St., Portland, $20, 21-plus.
Burn off all of the turkey and pie calories – and then some – by catching one or both nights of Model Airplane’s annual Funksgiving shows. Singers Lyle Divinsky and Gina Alibrio will be part of an all-star band that includes Brian Desmond Graham, Tyler Quist, Lucas Desmond, Phil Rodriguez, Max Cantlin, Pete Genova, Dana Farnsworth and Dan Boyden. Things will get mighty funky as they rip into funk and R&B gems all night long. But don’t wait to get tickets, these nights typically sell out.
