If there’s any downside for local music aficionados to the fact that gifted singer-songwriter Michael Carrillo spends most of his time running his rad bar and venue Ventura, it’s that we get to see less of him with his two swell — and quite different — bands, Deer Vibes and Micheal J. & The Foxes.

This week, however, folks have a chance to catch Carrillo out from behind the bar and at work with Michael J. & The Foxes, his heartbroken hoedown, alt-country project. The Thanksgiving night affair, an ideal escape from the temptation of eating leftovers and the boredom of hanging out with family, marks the second year in a row that The Foxes have put on a Foxgiving.

Whether you’re looking to cut loose or wind down, Carrillo and his crew, with their indie-folk-meets-demented-honky-tonk vibe, have got you covered.

Free, Thu Nov. 22, 9pm, Ventura, 1011 Avenue B, (210) 802-6940, venturasatx.com.
