The Ike Reilly Assassination

Year No. 13 should be a lucky one for the Ike Reilly Assassination’s annual Thanksgiving Eve blowout, a tradition that started when local fans first sang along to all the riling songs off their classic 2001 album “Salesmen & Racists.” Reilly thus promised former First Ave G.M. Steve McClellan he would play the same date every year “till the day I die.” This year’s show follows the release of the Libertyville, Ill., rockers’ best all-around album in a decade, “Born on Fire,” which arrived in June via Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello’s Firebrand label. Songs like “Hangin’ Around” and “Am I Still the One for You?” were already staples at the live shows, and plenty more from the record should prompt new singalongs this year. Local blues-rock wildman Crankshaft (Alex Larson) is opening to celebrate the release of his personal new LP, “Tied to the World Behind Me.” American Scarecrows also perform. Chris Riemenschneider
