Tonight, the eve of Thanksgiving, Talib Kweli is throwing a free concert for hip-hop fans in Los Angeles at The Roxy club. All you have to do to attend this MySpace Music-sponsored event is bring with you a canned food good or a blanket for the needy -- both of which will be donated to a local LA area shelter for Thanksgiving.
At tonight's all-ages, free show Talib Kweli will reportedly be premiering new material from his forthcoming album, Gutter Rainbows, which will arrive in Amoeba Music on January 25th. Also on the bill tonight is LA-based Stones Throw act Strong Arm Steady, as well as Tunji & Jayson Rose with DJs Luxerbrown, Uncle Pauly and Jay-P.
The Roxy is located at 9009 West Sunset Blvd in West Hollywood. Doors are at 9pm but be advised to arrive early, as a lot of fans are expected to show up.

And meanwhile below, view one of the Talib Kweli's previous free LA shows -- an amazing instore at the Hollywood Amoeba back in August 2007. You can also view images here from an even more recent Amoeba instore when he performed along with Hi-Tek (collectively known as Reflection Eternal) at the San Francisco store in May of this year.
