Turf War Embarks on Another Great Escape

Turf War

After opening for Brooklyn-based noise-punkers the Men last night at the Earl, local garage-punk quintet Turf War are ready to take their boozy, fist-pumping jams on the road. Beginning with another show with the Men tonight at the Bottletree in Birmingham, the band will play four consecutive regional dates in Alabama and Louisiana before regrouping back at home and preparing for the bulk of what the group is dubbing the Great Escape II tour in honor of their most recent effort, the rowdy and infectious The Great Escape EP. Focusing exclusively on the East Coast, the eleven-day trek will take the band as far north as Providence, Rhode Island and includes stops in Brooklyn for the Northside Festival and Athens for AthFest. But the festival train doesn’t stop there as Turf War has also been tagged to play Milwaukee’s Summerfest and the Hopscotch Music Festival in Raleigh later this summer, highlighting what has undoubtedly been a terrific year for the group.
