This killed me a little inside since Frank Turner's music is incredible, he's an amazing live performer, and the chance to see and photograph him in a small venue like The Horseshoe may never happen again, especially since I believe the last two times he headlined Toronto he played at The Sound Academy and The Phoenix Concert Theatre.
To get over the disappointment at missing what, by all accounts, was a fantastic live show, I've put this post together that highlights some of my favourite Frank Turner tunes, all from his Horseshoe setlist.
Frank's just released the third of his b-sides and rarities in the form of the aptly titled The Third Three Years and should have a new album out later this year. You lucky bastards who were in attendance got to hear some of the new tunes.
"Four Simple Words"
"Glory Hallelujah" an all time favourite that I hope everyone sang along to.
"Reasons Not To Be An Idiot"
"Try This At Home"
"The Way I Tend to Be"
"Photosynthesis" with "Plain Sailing Weather"
"Peggy Sang The Blues"
"Long Live The Queen"
"The Ballad Of Me & My Friends"
"I Knew Prufrock Before He Got Famous"
"I Still Believe"
The pic above is one I took on a point-and-shoot at TURF 2013.
