This Week at the Turf Club: November 29, 2016

Tuesday: The Smart Studios Story - A Screening

The post-70’s explosion of independent music in America has many traceable roots, each with a compelling story. Drawing on never-before-seen archival footage, in-depth-interviews with musicians and producers, and a mighty soundtrack, THE SMART STUDIOS STORY reveals the pivotal Midwest link to the global rise of 1990's Alternative Rock and the unassuming Madison, Wisconsin recording studio at its center. If you’ve ever been touched by the music of Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Garbage, L7 or their peers, you’ve been touched by the music created at Smart Studios, the legendary recording facility founded by Butch Vig and Steve Marker.

Wednesday: The Karma Kicks | The Person & The People | Wide Times

The Karma Kicks are a band from St. Paul, MN. So go on and get your kicks, just remember that the Karma Kicks back. Formed in early 2012, kickin' it since 2002, still jammin' and recording, playing live as often as they can. Next we have The Person & The People, a group of old friends from multiple bands in the area that finally teamed up and joined together to make music. The result of that is a power-pop flavored rock and roll band that truly stands out from the rest. That youthful energy can certainly still be felt with this band. Lastly but not least is Wide Times! Be sure to check them out.

Thursday: Joe Pug

The Austin, TX singer songwriter has made a habit of defying expectations and he’s quite comfortable stepping outside of the guy-with-a-guitar trappings of the genre. The theme of resilience plays a central role throughout his most recent album, Windfall. After the toll of four years of straight touring, he was ready to call it quits in 2013. He managed to perserve through embracing the back to basics approach to writing new muic. Windfall was released on March 10, 2015 on Lightning Rod Records in the US and Loose Music in Europe.

Friday: Amanda Shires

Amanda Shires began her career as a teenager playing fiddle with the Texas Playboys. Since then, she’s toured and recorded with John Prine, Billy Joe Shaver, Todd Snider, Justin Townes Earle, Shovels & Rope, and most recently her husband Jason Isbell. Along the way she’s made three solo albums, each serving to document a particular period in her life while improving on the perceptive qualities of the previous record. The songs on her newest album, My Piece Of Land, deal with family, with anxiety, with the phases of one young woman’s life; but the primary focus of My Piece Of Land is the concept of home.

Monday: The King Khan & BBQ Show

The King Khan & BBQ Show is a Canadian Garage rock duo from Montreal, Quebec who mix doo-wop and punk. At their full power, all your worries will quickly melt away, and getting lost in their seductively irresistible sounds of audio salvation is easy once it gets inside your head. Scientists have a term for this phenomenon: total euphoria, and it's as real as it gets here, folks. Their incredible range effortlessly sways from one emotion to the next with the deranged dexterity and sloppy precision that always brings a smile to your soul. - In The Red
