Record Store Day... With Frank Turner!
Record Store Day... With Frank Turner!
04/22/12 at 10:37 AM by Deborah Remus
I think Winnipeg had the best RSD celebrations in Canada yesterday and a lot of that had to do with an appearance from Frank Turner. He just happened to be here while opening for Joel Plaskett and he was awesome enough to come to the Folk Festival Music Store to play some songs with his acoustic guitar. I already thanked him, but I want to thank him again for being so awesome to Winnipeg. We appreciate it!

There's a tiny room behind the main store and it was pretty packed for his set. I'd say you could probably squeeze 20 more people in there if you tried, but if anymore than that showed up, some people would have to stand outside. You could even spot John K. Samson in the store, which I thought was pretty cool! As I said last October, he's got a big following here in Winnipeg. And just like last time, he was charming as usual and sounded great. Here's what he played if anyone is interested:

Peggy Sang The Blues
Time Machine
Balthazar, Impresario
Long Live the Queen
American Girl (Tom Petty cover)



After he hung out in the store and eagerly chatted with anyone who wanted a word with him. As for the actual vinyl, a copy of Refused's The Shape of Punk To Come captured my attention instantly. I also walked to Into the Music since it's so close. When I was going to Red River I was in the Exchange District every day, but I haven't been there since I saw Brighter Brightest at the Death Trap in September. It's probably one of the nicer parts of the city, at least I think so, and the weather held up for an awesome walk through the area. It was an amazing way to spend a Saturday afternoon and I hope whoever reads this had a great Record Store Day too.
