Mayer Hawthorne Playing His Own Thanksgiving Halftime Show

    You may remember that blue-eyed soulnerd Mayer Hawthorne campaigned to play the halftime show of the Detroit Lions-Green Bay Packers Thanksgiving game after the Motor City’s backlash against Nickelback being slated to perform. Even though the crud-rockers still have the gig, Hawthorne’s decided to give his own halftime show live online. He’ll be doing it exclusively over at Rolling Stone, where he’ll be broadcasting live from his parents’ living room. With his dad on bass! You can watch Hawthorne’s video announcement below and be sure to head to Rolling Stone to watch his performance.
