I’m not going to say that I’m HAPPY that fellow KXSU reporter Duke sent out an announcement to our Facebook group that he could no longer go to the Turnover show this Saturday… but I did immediately comment willing to scoop the show up for myself, so I feel like that’s pretty telling. The Virginia trio is bringing their sunny dream pop tunes to The Showbox on April 27th with backup from Turnstile and Reptaliens, and I couldn’t be more excited.
It’s insane to think that Turnover has been making music together for roughly a decade-the band formed in 2009, and since then has transformed from a pop punk leaning sound to an indie rock edge. With three albums and multiple EPs under their belt, there’s bound to be a good variety of songs on their setlist Saturday night.
Common features of Turnover’s music include reverb-heavy guitars, infectious melodies, and clear and cuttingly beautiful vocals from Austin Getz. These features also ring true in the music of openers Reptaliens, who I saw open for Of Montreal earlier in the year. Having never listened to Turnstile, I look forward to seeing how well they fit into the setlist!
Tickets for Turnover are still for sale here! Doors open at 8 pm, and what better way to spend a Saturday night than at the Showbox?
