We told you about dance-rock outfit The Turf a little over a month ago after we were pleasantly surprised by their performance at Local Honey, but if you missed that show you can check them out tonight at The Rutledge. There's a pretty clear Strokes/Arctic Monkeys lineage, but hey, these are high school kids still working out their influences. Check out the spastic jangle of "To the Disco" and the sunny pluck of "Oh Oh Oh"—they mangle those strains of influence just enough to show promise in any number of directions. Verdict: totally danceable.
