Great show in a beautiful renovated Altria Theatre. I brought my 12 year old daughter/fan and she cried when she saw that Isbell was headlining, but we had 45 minutes of very enthusiastic Frank and Sleeping Souls. Magnificent. Very, very sorry that we missed the Man at the merch stand afterward, we talked to some of the crew and told them that Frank Turner needs to experience Charlottesville, Virginia next year! And vice versa. Frank, you would be embraced by this lovely college town that loves your kind of music. The Paramount is a lot like the Altria, and there is also the Jefferson Theatre, and The Southern (much smaller) within walking distance on the downtown mall. Isbell was here last week, without you, to great fanfare, but you crushed him last night. He's got this year's Grammy, but you have the show and the talent, and the Souls (were they Elvis Costello's band? JK). Proud to know your music and see you for the first time.
