Frank Turner & the Sleeping Souls

Price: $20

When: Ended 10/28/13

Where: Varsity Theater

On his fifth solo album, “Tape Deck Heart,” Frank Turner comes across as Craig Finn’s British cousin. A former punk rocker with Million Dead whose earlier career invited comparisons with Billy Bragg, Turner is less political on this outing. But he’s a passionate storyteller, whether it’s the rowdy rocker “We Shall Not Overcome” about his non-mainstream tastes or the acoustic ballad “Wherefore Art Thou Gene Simmons” about a mom’s admonishment about rock musicians’ lifestyles.
