Frank Turner, Larry and His Flask, and Jenny Owen Youngs @ St. Andrew’s Hall (Photos & Review)

By Alexis Simpson

British singer Frank Turner charmed the audience at Detroit’s St. Andrew’s Hall with his folk rock music, friendly demeanor, and spirited stage show. The crowd was well-versed in Turner’s lyrics and even the believers sang along to the blasphemously fun and cheeky song “Glory Hallelujah.” We also got a kick out of the new song “Wherefore Art Thou, Gene Simmons?.” Frank Turner showed his playful side to us when he asked the audience to play the “air harmonica” during one of his songs to which we happily obliged, and were later awarded with Jenny Owen Youngs joining Frank on stage to play the real harmonica. Another high point of the evening was Turner’s encore cover of Tom Petty’s “American Girl.” Lastly, UK singer songwriter also told Detroit that he had endured a “bad week” after his political views were dissected and criticized in major publications. This was a good lead into his final song which reminded us all the importance of refusing to sit down, shut up, and to never grow up.

Jenny Owen Youngs started off the night with a genuine, earthy, but spunky performance which led into the next opening act, Larry and His Flask. Earlier this year, Noize writer, Mitch Planamento had a great time interviewing them.
