Birthday Suits, Blind Shake and Vampire Hands tomorrow at Turf Club

It’s the first weekend of a brand, spanking new year. Could there be any better time to plant your feet firmly in our cities’ loudest, most bracing musical pleasures? For three years running, the Turf Club has hosted a showcase of our finest guild of musicians on the first weekend of a new year, and this lineup is potent enough to make all those worn out Thursdays you spent nursing a beer in the Clown Lounge seem like a distant cloud of erasures.
None of these bands want for attention or description– their ascents to the top of this glorious scrapheap have been well cataloged in all manner of local media. But in the event that the Gimme Noise readers are uninitiated and have resolved to make 2009 a year of music, this show will make for an excellent primer.
