Happy Boweryversary!!!
« on: December 09, 2009, 09:52:22 AM »
8 years ago tonight.

Bowery Ballroom, NYC.  Ben's first solo show.  A Sunday night.  Existed only because his 9/13/01 show at Irving Plaza that I was supposed to go to obviously had gotten canceled.

So instead, greyseal and the Bowery Bandit tape the show from the Bowery, circulate it for d/l on the webs, it makes its way to Ben down under.  Whence comes the Ben Folds and a Piano tour.  Which leads to Ben Folds Live.

And it all started 8 years ago tonight.

Thanks greyseal.

I still love the show and regularly listen to it.  It never leaves my iPod.  One of the best shows (mistakes and all) he has ever done with such a great set list.

Thanks Greyseal and happy Boweryversary to you too Ben_Folds_Fan.

Ben Folds Live was the album that really got me into Ben. I had Whatever and Ever Amen since probably '98, but didn't give it a fair listen. I picked up BFL on a whim. Best purchase ever. All he really needs is his piano. I love Sam, Jared, Linds, Darren, Robert, et al, but if Ben went totally solo for the rest of his tours I'd be happy.
