Annual Thanksgiving Critical Bill show returns to Diesel
On Thanksgiving, the annual free Critical Bill Thanksgiving show returned to the Diesel Concert Lounge for its 15th year after having to miss last year.
Fans were more than ready to see the tradition return and they packed into the venue to see a evening of local rock and hip hop on both the lounge and theatre stages.
The main stage kicked off with Alice in Chains tribute band Dirt, who got the crowd ready to go as they sang along to the radio hits.
10 Paces opened the lounge stage with their blend of metal and rock and were joined by Critical Bill front man Powerdise for a sizzling take on Limp Bizkit's "Break Stuff."
ABK has become a mainstay at these Thanksgiving shows and he draws his own large crowd that come out just to see him.
As a result, it's become a family event for him as he brought his daughter and niece on stage with him.
He also brought along a Santa, who threw posters out to the crowd throughout the set.
Dirty White and the High Life Social Club closed things out on the lounge stage with a killer set that had the packed crowd buzzing.
Finally, it was time for Critical Bill to close things out on the main stage.
This was only the band's second show this year and they were clearly enjoying being back on stage with each other and in front of their fans as they moved through some of their most popular tracks.
