J-ONE
9 p.m., Juanita's. $10-$20.

Jason “J-One” Marshall's been a name on the scene for several years now, but for ever-changing reasons. In 2006, he released a well-received compilation album, featuring dozens of local rappers and vocalists performing on tracks he'd produced. Last year, his focus turned to promotion. With Upscale Underground, a company he co-founded, he booked a handful of rising stars in the national neo-soul scene. Now, he's refocused his energies on his own work again, though he's certainly remained in full promotional mode (through, among other things, multiple MySpace pages and an online commercial that starts out like it might be a porno). The night before Thanksgiving he'll celebrate the release of his new EP, “Electric Soul,” with a concert that also features all the biggest local male R&B singers — David Lawrence, Kuji Wright, Sean West and Justamore. With very little competition and Marshall's promotional skills, look for the concert to live up to its billing: “Pre-Thanksgiving Bash.”
