Retailers are contorting their traditional definitions of Black Friday this year, starting sales pushes earlier in November — in some cases after Halloween — in an effort to boost the fourth quarter, but at ear X-tacy, this holiday season is about more than numbers. After surviving potential closure in February, the store is kicking off the holiday shopping season by celebrating the release of the new Shipping News album (full disclosure: I helped release the LP), with performances by a cappella powerhouse Sandpaper Dolls and the thinking man’s singer-songwriter, LEO columnist and former write-in mayoral candidate Joe Manning. Friday will be a great litmus test on whether consumer dollars spent in town help preserve Louisville businesses. —Mat Herron
