tix on sale: Frank Turner, Flaming Lips/Tame Impala, Jessie Ware, Slaughterhouse, Talib Kweli, Big KRIT, Julie Ruin, more
British folk punk Frank Turner already came to NYC for an intimate show at Bowery Ballroom in March and has two more that size coming up in July at Music Hall of Williamsburg with Off With Their Heads. Both of those shows are sold out, but if you've missed out on getting tickets to any of Frank's smaller shows, it should be much easier to grab some for his just-announced show at Terminal 5 on November 27. Tickets for that show go on AmEx presale today at noon. General on-sale starts Friday (6/28) at noon.
