In theme with Frank Turner's hit song, October is 22nd is a night I will never recover from.
With the perfect fusion of folk, pop and punk, Britain's own Frank Turner kept Vancouver on it's toes. Backed up by The Sleeping Souls, he didn't disappoint the sardine packed concert goers of the Commodore Ballroom.
I loved and was amazed at the audience participation and how intimate and interactive the nineteen song set was. Not many artists have his level of energy and charisma, and the few that do are often the ones playing arenas, losing the effect that could be felt amidst the bar and club circuit.
Not letting anything as "simple" as a back brace slow him down, he managed to power through the show with such energy that he even needed post show physiotherapy.
He performed the hits from his fifth critically acclaimed studio album, Tape-Deck Heart, as well as songs from his previous releases, including The Road and Wessex Boy, among many others.
I remember pushing my way up to the front before the stage and rocking out to Frank with these two random fans. I loved it how at this concert it's like one big community, for the most part everyone respects each other for who they are. It's a chance to cultivate relationships that may last a lifetime. This is a show that I'll never forget
