Virginia’s Turnover came through Minneapolis on their “USA 2017” tour last Wednesday. Tickets sold out long before the night of the show, so I was full of anticipation and excitement knowing that everyone else would be just as into what was going on as I was.
Openers Emma Ruth Rundle and Elvis Depressedly started the evening with a bang, starting their sets as everyone filed into the Triple Rock. Being one of the first *true* cold days of the Midwest winter, entering such a full venue felt cozy instead of stuffy. I made my way to the merch table and felt some pride in realizing that I already owned most of the Turnover shirts available for purchase.
Emma Ruth Rundle’s singer/songwriter vibes and Elvis Depressedly’s indie-rock fusion got the crowd’s attention almost immediately. I nearly found myself bummed out when their sets were over but, thankfully, I knew that one of my favorite bands was about to take the stage.
Turnover started their set strong with songs like “Super Natural” and “Hello Euphoria,” getting nearly everyone in the audience singing and shaking along. Having worked with Pennsylvania based producer Will Yip (Circa Survive, Title Fight) has brought them to so many fanbases’ attention recently. As the set went on things only got better and better and by the time that the evening was coming to an end, I felt so invigorated and just happy in general that I could’ve stayed at the Triple Rock for hours.
As I filed out of the Triple Rock (for maybe the last time ever?) I found myself feeling that gratification and euphoria that I hadn’t felt in a long time. It was enchanting to know that I can still leave a show feeling excited and refreshed like I used to back when I was a 15 year old seeing local punk bands back home in Philly. Thanks, Turnover.
