It goes without saying that a good Thursday night bill at the Turf Club is the best way to start a weekend early. Put together by locally based music blog CultureBully.com, tonight's roster is filled to the brim with quite the combination of harmonies and characters. The gorgeous rootsy folk of the Floorbirds is enough to whisk a person to the backcountry '40s in a shiny futuristic time machine, as their sound still resonates with a modern freshness. Joining in the festivities are the bluesy, foot-stompin' rowdies of A Night in the Box, the mischievously quirky pop-folk of Lucy Michelle and the Velvet Lapelles, and the jangly and jaunty guitars and peppy pop keys of Skirt. 21+.
