TURF announces first bands: Neutral Milk Hotel, Violent Femmes, Jenny Lewis, Steve Earle

The second annual Toronto Urban Roots Festival takes place July 4th-6th at Fort York.

The first batch of bands have been announced, including headliners Sam Roberts Band and Neutral Milk Hotel.  I have to say that Sam Roberts isn't exactly an inspiring pick.  I'll be leaving early that night for sure.

The rest of the line-up announced sounds pretty good though:
  • Gogol Bordello
  • Gaslight Anthem 
  • Violent Femmes
  • Gary Clark Jr
  • Andrew Bird
  • Jenny Lewis 
  • Steve Earle
  • Born Ruffians
  • Hollerado
  • The Strumbellas
  • Sam Cash & The Romamtic Dogs 
  • Devin Cuddy Band
You can get your early bird starting February 27th.
