The New Familiars to honor Levon Helm, The Band, with Thanksgiving-Weekend concert

The New Familiars, a Charlotte-based rock-and-roll band, will perform its annual tribute to Levon Helm and The Band on Friday, Nov. 27.

The show takes place at The Fillmore at the N.C. Music Factory. Doors open at 8:30 p.m.

The Band is best known for songs like "The Weight" and "Up on Cripple Creek." It last performed on Thanksgiving Day in 1976 -- a concert that was turned into a documentary by Martin Scorsese.

Levon Helm, a core member of The Band, died in 2012. The New Familiars have been putting on this tribute ever since.
