Thought Sleigh Bells’ noise-pop was an intriguing genre? Well, Frank Turner’s folk-punk sound is a little extraordinary too.

Englishman Turner and The Sleeping Souls will perform at 7 p.m. Saturday at Town Ballroom, 681 Main St., Buffalo. Openers include The Smith Street Band and Koo Koo Kanga Roo.

Turner was initially the vocalist for a post-hardcore band, but after the band split in 2005, he pursued a primarily acoustic solo career.

He is accompanied by his backing band, The Sleeping Souls, which consists of a guitarist, mandolinist, bassist, pianist and drummer. Who doesn’t like a mandolin? The instrument should be mandated for every band.

Turner has released five solo albums, his latest being “Tape Deck Heart,” and performed his 1500th show late this week in Detroit.

Next year, Turner will embark on his biggest tour yet.

Beginning in Spain, the show will include stops in Holland, Germany, Norway, Sweden, Poland and Switzerland. To view a full listing of his tour dates, visit his website.

Before he leaves for this tour, Turner will finish 2013 with a fundraising show with Billy Braggs on Dec. 18 in London for the housing and homelessness charity shelter.

Turner’s concert Saturday is part of Buffalo.com Presents show in cooperation with After Dark Entertainment

Tickets for the show are $17 pre-sale and $20 at the door. Visit tickets.com to purchase tickets.

All ages can attend this concert, but fans under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
