Positive Songs For Negative People

To celebrate the release of Frank Turner's new album Positive Songs For Negative People, he played a few small instore shows. So of course, when I heard that there would be one in my favourite record store, I had to go!

I dug out an old Frank Turner shirt for the occasion! I'm surprised it still fits haha.

The first act was PJ Bond, and he was really good! Although obviously I couldn't see a damn thing because I didn't bother turning up mega early in favour of reading in the park for longer.

Then there was Frank. His set mostly consisted of new songs which was hardly surprising, and it was great to hear them (even though I felt like the only person singing along most of the time). Although it was a shame that nothing older than England Keep My Bones was played.

After a long wait (in which I read again, which impressed some other people in the queue as I looked well prepared!), I got to meet Frank again!

I got my copy of the CD signed, & I also had a chat to Barry Dolan (of Oxygen Thief) and PJ Bond while waiting in the line, so I got them to scribble on my purchase confirmation email I had in my bag...haha.

Such a good evening! Makes me look forward to Reading finally!
