[DID NOT ATTEND: May 13 & 14, 2023] Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls / The Interrupters / Bedouin Soundclash

I am reposting exactly what I wrote last year:

I had been wanting to see him for a long time because I’d heard his live shows were amazing.  I saw him last year in a solo (more or less) performance.  And it was great.  So next, I wanted to see him with his band because I’ve heard the band version is even wilder with a more punk aesthetic and I do love a fun punk show.

I grabbed a ticket to this immediately, not realizing that it was Father’s Day Mother’s Day.  It’s not a very Fatherly nice way to spend Mother’s Day by being away from your family for hours.  So I didn’t go.

COME ON FRANK.  Last year on father’s Day.  This year on Mother’s Day?  WTF.

I prefer the Fillmore to the Summer Stage, but by the time I realized that my tickets were for Mother’s Day, we had already made plans for the Saturday so I couldn’t grab tickets in Asbury Park anyway.

The Interrupters opened for the Hella-Mega tour.  We caught their ska set and it was fun as anything. I definitely want to se them again, so this bill was killer for me.

Bedouin Soundclash is from Canada.  Their music is like a combination of reggae and rock with ska elements.  Although everything I listened to on Spotify was far more mellow than I would have expected for this tour.
