FRANK at Arlene’s Grocery April 22, 2023

Hey everyone! It’s been a while since we’ve seen all your beautiful faces, so we’re coming back to you… live!

Frank has been busy in the studio recording our new album and we are so excited for you to hear it. Meanwhile, we released an all improv piece called “Moment” which we recently released on all streaming platforms. We had our creative juices flowing and we figured we’d give everyone a taste of how we generate ideas in real time. Enjoy!

So, we have decided that we need to get out of Frank HQ for a night and finally get back on stage. Where better than our home away from home, Arlene’s Grocery. So, join us for an epic night of rock on April 22 at 9:30pm. We’ll be playing some tracks from our upcoming album and plenty of old favorites. You do not want to miss this!

We encourage you to buy tickets in advance as tickets are cheaper.
