Next weekend, the 2018 Summer Camp Music Festival will be held at Three Sisters Park in Chillicothe, Illinois. Organizers of the Memorial Day Weekend event recently shared the latest installment of their Summer Camp Sessions video series. The new clip features professionally-shot footage of moe. covering “Life During Wartime” by Talking Heads with the members of Turkuaz.
moe. has been among the event’s headliners since Summer Camp’s start. This year, they will play all three days of the festival. On May 27, 2017 moe. performed two sets on the Moonshine Stage. The group was joined by the Turkuaz horn section for a cover of The Band’s “Ophelia” and their own “Happy Hour Hero” to end the evening’s first set. Later in the night, the members of Turkuaz loaded the stage to guest with moe. on a “Life During Wartime” encore. Turkuaz’s Josh Schwartz sung the Talking Heads classic which also featured contributions from his band mates Michelangelo Carruba, Craig Brodhead, Sammi Garett and Shira Elias.
