FIELD OF GREENS (NOV. 15)
Located at Covington's organic Whippoorwill Hollow Farm, the farm-fresh festival offers tastings with local chefs, an open-air organic market, and homegrown food and drinks for festival-goers. Whippoorwill promises family events for the tots, a slew of giveaways and raffles for restaurant certificates, and a few special guest speakers. $10-$15. 11 a.m.-6 p.m. 3905 Ga. 138, Covington. 678-625-3272. www.fieldofgreens.com.
TELLABRATION! (NOV. 17)
Twenty years ago, Connecticut storyteller J.G. "Paw-Paw" Pinkerton came up with the idea of a community-wide storytelling tradition wherein people gathered to hear the town's best tellers tell tales, spin yarns and so forth. Now Tellabration! is held in dozens of cities around the world every year around Thanksgiving. This year's event features Natalie Jones, Sharon Mathis and more. $10. 8 p.m. Carter Center, 453 Freedom Parkway. 404-420-5100. www.tellabration.org.
TOADIES (NOV. 18)
The Toadies' 15-year span has been a haphazard of unlikely circumstances: a monstrous debut, an unsupported second album, an unanticipated departure by bassist Lisa Umbarger, a forced breakup and a much talked-about reunion. The group reemerged in 2008 with the August release of No Deliverance, full of edgy, uneasy hooks, steady bass beats and scratchy vocals. $14. 7 p.m. Masquerade, 695 North Ave. 404-577-8178. www.masq.com.
MADONNA (NOV. 24)
Over the years, as we've watched Madonna transform from a "Material Girl" to a material woman, one thing has remained the same – she's always put on a hell of a show. Give thanks and preface your big Thanksgiving meal with her new album, Hard Candy, as she brings her Sticky & Sweet Tour to town for one night only. $57-$352. 8 p.m. Philips Arena, 1 Philips Drive. 404-878-3000. www.philipsarena.com.
