Earlier in August, Turkuaz had huge news for fans, announcing a brand-new album due out on September 28th, Life In The City, and an extensive list of new tour dates in support. Slated to be their fifth album, Life In The City follows up the Brooklyn nine-piece’s 2015 release, Digitonium, and is likely to further solidify Turkuaz as one of the hottest rising artists in the live music scene.As part of their upcoming Life In The City tour, the band has a very special performance scheduled for Friday, October 19th, with the group heading to Port Chester, New York for a headlining performance at the city famed venue, The Capitol Theatre. Marking the group’s final performance of their East Coast leg before heading south, Turkuaz has tapped Cory Henry & The Funk Apostles to join them as support for the show, ensuring a funk-fueled celebration from start to finish.Marking Turkuaz’s headlining debut at The Capitol Theatre, it’s likely that the band will be showing off their new album to fans, highlighting the upcoming album’s highly anticipated nine tracks, in addition to drawing on their expansive catalog of fan-favorites. However, as with every Turkuaz show and given the gravity of this particular performance, the group is likely to pull out all of the stops, going above and beyond at The Capitol Theatre—a difficult feat already given the high energy and attention to detail each Turkuaz show brings to the table.At The Capitol Theatre, Turkuaz will be supported by Cory Henry & The Funk Apostles, another band that has quickly been making waves and earning critical success around the world. Headed by Cory Henry, a former Grammy-winning member of Snarky Puppy, the group showcases Henry’s next-level musical abilities, both as a Hammond B-3 organ player and as a vocalist in his own right. With a stellar band to back him, Cory Henry & The Funk Apostles are not to be missed, so make sure you get to The Capitol Theatre early on October 19th!Tickets for Turkuaz’s headlining debut at The Capitol Theatre are on-sale now and available here.

Aston Villa boss Remi Garde revealed his daughter was in Paris during the terrorist attacks. The 49-year-old was flying back to France on Friday when extremists struck outside the Stade de France, where the national team were playing Germany, and across the capital. The death toll from the series of attacks stands at 129 with many more seriously injured and ex-France international Garde admitted he was scared for his daughter’s safety. He said: “I was on the plane back to France when it happened. Then I was in the taxi and I heard the game on the radio. “They said there was an explosion outside the stadium. We didn’t know too much at this time, then I went home and learned my daughter was in Paris for the weekend. “I didn’t know that. I was scared a little bit but just for two hours because I had her on the phone and it was okay. Everyone in France has a cousin or daughter or friends in Paris. “All the country was scared. It was very hard. When you know your family is safe it’s one point. But when you saw what happened – everybody has been affected a lot. We are still affected by that. It is such a nightmare to see such an attack. “She was not near the place where it happened. She stayed in the apartment and understood quite quickly it was not the night to be out in Paris. “We speak every day on the phone. I saw her and my family since.” Villa go to Everton in the Barclays Premier League on Saturday with the league considering whether to play the French national anthem before the games. Garde, who is without Jordan Amavi for the season after a knee injury, would be pleased to see it sung but would not blame anyone if it does not happen. “It would be a good thing but if it doesn’t happen I wouldn’t say it’s the fault of English not to sing,” he said. “You have to not forget what happened but it’s very important we carry on. I am not sure the Marseillaise on every pitch should be sung, but if it’s the case I will be very happy but if it’s not I will not say ‘why have we not sung the Marseillaise?.” Press Association
