UK folker Frank Turner has gone from post-hardcore punking to heartfelt tunesmithing—and he was making gorgeous English folk better and earlier than anyone had ever heard the word Mumford. And Turner's been grabbing more and more listeners with every step along the way. He's got a new album out called Tape Deck Heart, which is a grabby title (and a lot cooler than my middle-school nickname, "Laserdisc Gall Bladder"), and he's coming to the Wonder Ballroom on Saturday, October 19. Tickets for that show just went on sale (get 'em here) but we're also giving away a pair of tickets to one winning End Hits reader.
To enter, send an email to this address with "Frank Turner" in the subject line. Please include your first and last name in the email. We'll select a winner at random and send him or her, plus a guest, to the show. This closes Monday at noon, so act now, and good luck!
