Funk powerhouse Turkuaz will embark on a massive tour this coming fall, with nearly 50 stops spanning coast-to-coast beginning in mid-September. In addition to previously announced dates with Sinkane throughout the West Coast, the band will be joined by Con Brio and The Suffers on select stops across the country, with Pimps of Joytime joining later for a pre-New Year’s Eve run in Boston and New Haven. The band will make a noteworthy stop at the newly opened Brooklyn Steel for a hometown throwdown in November, while continuing to dominate the festival circuit at events like Whale Rock Music Festival, Joshua Tree Music Festival, LEAF Festival, and Hangtown Music Festival.With the band’s recent nonstop trajectory, sitting in with Umphrey’s McGee and Mike Gordon this past weekend at Peach Festival and constantly ruling the national touring circuit, it would be a huge mistake to miss Turkuaz on tour. Visually, they’re a sight to behold, from synchronized dance moves down to a coordinated color scheme, but musically, they’re one of the tightest funk acts in the game right now.Live for Live Music is thrilled to be teaming up with the dynamic nine-piece to provide behind-the-scenes coverage, real-time recaps, and more updates from the road throughout the cross-country tour.Special, fan pre-sale tickets are available now at www.turkuazband.com ahead of general public on sale this Friday, Aug 18 @ 12pm local time.
The City of Los Angeles Department of Sanitation (LASAN), through the Los Angeles County Flood Control District (LACFCD), recently requested permission from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to alter the Sepulveda Channel.According to the Corps, the proposed action would construct a diversion channel within the Sepulveda Channel. The proposed features are in-river, which will require construction within the channel.LASAN is proposing to construct a saw-cut diversion channel within the Sepulveda Channel to intercept dry weather flow, and diverting the flow to a transition channel and rock trap to be constructed in the Sepulveda Channel wall.USACE is soliciting comments from the public, Federal, State and local agencies and officials, and other interested parties regarding the proposed project.The deadline for sending comments on the proposal is February 10, 2020.
