Frank Turner & the Sleeping Souls

The folk-punk alchemist Frank Turner is another U.K. act who claims huge stardom in his homeland but is relatively anonymous stateside. In England, he performed at the London Olympics' opening ceremony last year and headlined a sold-out Wembley arena with support from his backing band, the Sleeping Souls. A fiery vocalist and passionate power-strummer, Turner ever-so-slightly dials back the aggression and brightens the mood on his fifth album, the recently released Tape Deck Heart. The slight tonal shift might be just the tweak needed to break Turner big in the U.S. at long last. With the Smith Street Band, Koo Koo Kangaroo. 16+, $20, 5:30 p.m., 1308 Fourth St. SE, Minneapolis; 612-604-0222.
