Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls Bringing Be More Kind Tour To Myth 6/22


Cancel whatever you have planned for the night of Friday, June 22nd. Seriously. Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls will be performing at The Myth which is more than enough reason to drop everything but the fact that Lucero (my all time favorite band), The Menzingers, and The Homeless Gospel Choir are all opening this banger of a show gives you absolutely no room for excuses. THIS IS THE SHOW OF THE YEAR PEOPLE! THIS IS WHAT WE HAVE BEEN PREPARING FOR! If you can’t tell, I’m excited but, in case you aren’t familiar with these groups…

Francis Edward “Frank” Turner (born 28 December 1981) is an English folk singer-songwriter from Meonstoke, Hampshire. He began his career as the vocalist of post-hardcore band Million Dead, then embarked upon a primarily acoustic-based solo career following the band’s split in 2005. In the studio and during live performances, Turner is accompanied by his backing band, The Sleeping Souls, which consists of Ben Lloyd (guitar, mandolin), Tarrant Anderson (bass), Matt Nasir (piano, mandolin) and Nigel Powell (drums). To date, Turner has released seven solo albums, three rarities compilation albums, one split album and five EPs. Turner’s seventh studio album, Be More Kind, was released on 4th May 2018.

Lucero is an American country-punk rock band based in Memphis, Tennessee, United States. Lucero’s sound has been described as a “synthesis of soul, rock, and country [that] is distinctly Memphisian.” They have released 11 albums and one live DVD, mostly through their own label. The band mainly tours around North America.

The Menzingers are an American punk rock band from Scranton, Pennsylvania, formed in 2006. The band consists of Greg Barnett (vocals, guitar), Tom May (vocals, guitar), Eric Keen (bass) and Joe Godino (drums). To date, the band has released five studio albums, with their most recent, After the Party, released in February 2017.

The Homeless Gospel Choir, also known as Derek Zanetti, is a folk-punk musician from Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. His act consists of his voice, his emotions, and his acoustic guitar. He’s signed to A-F Records and has released five albums to date. His debut album, “Some People Never Go Anywhere,” was released in 2010, “You Work So Hard to Be Like Everyone Else,” in 2011, Luxury Problems, his third was released in 2012; and his fourth album, I Used To Be So Young, which was released in 2014, contains his hit song, “Untitled”. Most of his songs revolve around the topics of politics and mental health.
