Almost exactly one year since their last St. Louis show supporting $uicideboy$ on their Greyday tour, the Baltimore based hardcore powerhouse Turnstile returns with a vengeance. 

Hot on the heels of the release of the band’s spectacular fourth record “Glow On”, the Turnstile Love Connection Tour brings the band along with an eclectic collection of guests to a sold out show at The Pageant in St. Louis, Missouri. 

Following spectacular performances of both JPEGMAFIA and Snail Mail, the crowd was greeted by the funky bassline and perky keyboard fanfare of Whitney Houston’s 1987 classic “I Wanna Dance With Somebody”. Shortly thereafter the lights dimmed once more and the jubilant atmosphere within the venue quickly transformed into an excited fervor. 

Vocalist Brendan Yates hit the stage and the band quickly followed before launching into their first of 19 songs, “Holiday”. Although not intentional, it was clear that there was a competition taking place between the band and the audience. The energy in the room was potent and as Yates amped up the crowd with twirls, jumps, and kicks, heads banged and hair flailed throughout the crowd.

The band volleyed hit after hit from each of their releases as far back as their 2011 EP “Pressure to Succeed”. 

It’s highly apparent that Turnstile has one goal in mind with its shows – make the crowd feel good. When they weren’t passing out water bottles to thirsty fans, the band packed surprise after surprise for the crowd including an impressive drum solo by drummer Daniel Fang, confetti cannons, and an open invitation to jump onto the stage to close out the evening to their cathartic hit song T.L.C. 

If you haven’t yet seen Turnstile live, do yourself and your friends a favor and grab a ticket before they sell out. It’s an experience that you will never forget.
