Frank Turner at Twist & Shout on Friday, October 9th at 7pm
Last Friday we hosted a huge event with Frank Turner. He performed a solo acoustic set for over 300 fans. After the performance he signed autographs for the 250 fans that had wristbands. Fans with wristbands all bought copies of his new album Positive Songs For Negative People, and had CDs and LPs in hand for the signing. It was a fun night for everyone because Frank Turner was such a genuine person. He gave every single person a big hug, he was so gracious with staff, we were all ecstatic! His music is so earnest and passionate; it was extraordinary to see him in such an intimate space. I really admire his story-telling ability in each of his songs. Frank Turner has encapsulated the intensity of a hardcore artist with the intellectual song craftsmanship of a folk artist. It was a treat to have someone so in touch with their fanbase, and also incredibly hands on and hard working. Be sure to catch his live show next time he is in town!
