31DaysOfMusic, Day 27: Artist You’ve Seen Live the Most
Playing in a promising local band means that I’ve seen a couple regional bands an uncountable number of times. I can’t think of one national act that I’ve seen more than about 4 times (Madonna, Placebo, Josh Homme)— guess that’s cause I grew up in Reno and no one played there, so my concert-going life didn’t start til about 2001. Anyway, I’ve seen the Turn-Ons and their subsequent bands more times than I can count, and I’d go see them a million times more.
The Turn Ons, It’s Over
*this song, It’s Over, was written about the demise of the band and if I’m not mistaken this was one of the Turn-Ons last performances… additionally, this video in NO WAY justifies how awesome this band is… all the guys have gone on to other projects which I heartily recommend checking out…
