  1. Hey Silvia, Great interview with Frank Turner. So, you’ve gotta update us on where he is in your 100+ bands this year. Did he take over the #1 spot. He is an awesome performer and very genuine.

    • Sylvia says:

      Eric, thanks so much for your comment. And thanks for listening to the interview. You are right, Frank Turner is about as smart, charming, and down to Earth as they come – it was a pleasure to speak to him before his show. Well, he put on a fantastic performance that night, but did not make it to the very top of my Top 15 of 2015 concerts. He came in at #5 for the year (he was beat out by Dan Mangan +Blacksmith #4, The Twilight Sad #3, Father John Misty #2, and Glen Hansard #1). Thanks!
