Ah yes, Thanksgiving. The day we commemorate our ancestors’ slow but steady extermination of Native Americans. It makes me hungry just thinking about it. And what better way to work off the artery-clogging calories of this national day of gluttony than to spend the night dancing to the music of the Talking Heads? Chances of that group ever re-forming are next to nil. Enter Fear of Music, the recently formed Richmond tribute band to the Talking Heads, fronted by guitarist, vocalist and David Byrne look-alike Nate Griffith. The band includes his wife, Chrissie, on bass, with familiar local musicians Bob Miller on keys and Dusty Ray Simmons on drums. They play spot-on renditions of the group’s chart-topping favorites and obscurities from for a night of crowd-pleasing nostalgia for the obsessive fan and the uninitiated. Fear of Music plays Thursday, Nov. 28, at the Camel. Doors open at 8 p.m. Free. thecamel.org.
