The Shys are scheduled to perform on Wednesday, Nov. 26, at ChyroArts Venue in Scottsdale. 

It's time to fess up, yo. After all, we can see right through your web of lies and know what the real deal is: This coming Friday when you're calling in sick to work, chances are you won't really be suffering from influenza or a common cold. Truth be told, with the Thanksgiving holiday upon us, the only malady you'll be experiencing is "want-a-four-day-weekend-itis."

Don't fret, we won't rat you out to the boss or anything like that. In fact, we're gonna help you make the most of your hooky session from work by providing the 411 on the various concerts and major music-related events scheduled to go down during the long weekend from Wednesday, November 26, until Sunday, November 30. (As always, be sure to click the accompanying links for ticket availability).

So after you've gotten your fill of turkey and stuffing, here's the skinny on some shows to check out:
