Funk at Falstaff’s: Turkuaz

A band that is as funky as the spelling of its name, Turkuaz filled Falstaff’s on Saturday night, turning up the bass and packing the stage with more wild musicians than any one drunk, dancing freshman could count. Not unlike their last Skidmore show three years ago, the band had everybody moving, sweating their way through a long set of dance-happy soul songs.

Not to be overshadowed, though, Skidmore’s own Bo Peep and the Funk Sheep opened, sporting more thick, shaggy hair than the animals they’re named after, and churning out funky cover song after funky cover song as if they were some sort of best worst-of-the-70s white tribute band. Take a look at some of the pictures from the show.
