Frank Iero Did Not Disappoint

Explosive Performance at The U Street Music Hall

There seems to be a tacit understanding between Frank Iero fans and the artist himself: loyalty and intensity know no bounds. Show goers lined up as early as late afternoon to ensure a prime concert participation spot last Friday night at U Street Music Hall, a basement venue with a capacity of 500.

Leanne Tankel studied poetry writing as a UC Berkeley undergraduate and was fortunate enough to work with the inimitable Thom Gunn. She earned her M.A. in Creative Writing at Boston University, where she held a teaching fellowship. Currently, she is writing prose, and her manuscript, Broken Hallelujah: notes from a marriage, was a 2011 short-list finalist for the Santa Fe Literary Awards program. Leanne lives with her husband, three sons, and two pugs in Northern Virginia
