Last week Rachael and I went to see Frank Turner up in Atlanta. I also wanted to write about my new song, that’ll be next week, then I wanted to write about Achievement Hunter: The Musical too, that’ll be the week after, and with the new NSP album coming out this Friday, I think I have the next month all booked up.
So, Rachael and I saw Frank Turner, and he was awesome. He did 2 sets, the first one was based on his latest album, No Man’s Land, which is songs about famous women from the past, and is a fascinating listen on it’s own, and he spoke about each of the songs in turn, and gave background to what he was playing. It was an inspiring show, and was wonderful to listen to. That set was him on his own, with just his guitar, and I found it very inspiring. Here is a picture from that set.
Then, he played a set with The Sleeping Souls, his backing band, and it was full of songs that told a story or two across a bunch of albums about his relationships. It was a really cool set, and made me appreciate his music even more. He rounded the show out with a few of his most famous songs, and he played a few songs that I was very much hoping to hear. Below is the setlist, and we had a wonderful time.
Have an excellent day! You’re all my favourites!
