Tone Harm at Revelry Room
Every year, a Chattanooga-based collective called Tone Harm reunites for a one-off performance at the Thanksgiving holiday. This year, the group will perform at Revelry Room Friday night at 9. The three-headed DJs promise to "bring the rawkus," as they have for years. It doesn't get any more "Chattanooga" than Tone Harm, as the band first came up with the idea to form in 2005 at Lamar's Restaurant. This concert will be a good way to lose some weight after all that turkey. Admission is $7. Click here for tickets.
When: Friday, Nov. 25, 9 p.m.
Where: 41 Station St.
How much: $7
