This is not the El Rey. Deal with it.

Frank Turner came to Hollywoodland last Thursday and rocked the El Rey like I’ve never seen anyone rock it before. Mostly because it was the first time I had been there. If you don’t know Turner, he’s a folk-punk singer-songwriter from England, who released the album England Keep My Bones earlier this year.

What I like most about him is that his slow songs cater to the folk genre that seems to have a “Kari magnet” attached to it, and then can be easily followed up by a mosh pit-inducing (yes, really) up-tempo song that caters toward “high school, wristband-wearing Kari.”
