Album Board / Re: Thoughts on BF/BFF vinyl

Supersunnyspeedgraphic!

I have mixed feelings about this. I love the EPs, don't get me wrong, but I do not like this release. I don't like the re-visited versions of these songs. I really think that Ben should have just let them be!! I also don't like how it skims over half the stuff he wrote on the EPs.

This would be a good opportunity to just release all three EPs as they originally were, in a vinyl format.

Tour Board / Resources for BF Setlists
« Last post by BigBadD50 on September 13, 2017, 07:38:15 PM »
The wife and I are attending our 19th and 20th BF shows later in the fall, and I am trying to find setlists from all of the previous concerts we have attended.  I have 4 shows I can not find any sign of any setlists via the Google machine, and I thought I'd ask if anyone hanging out here would have any leads.  The shows in question:

2/20/05 Cincinnati, OH Cintas Center (Xavier)
5/3/06 Dayton, OH Nutter Center (Wright State University)
10/28/09 Columbus, OH Veterans Memorial Auditorium (w/Columbus Symphony)
9/9/16 Nashville, TN  Schermerhorn Symphony Center (w/Nashville Symphony)

The 5/3/06 barely exists online, as it isn't even listed on setlist.fm.  I've never been one to keep track at shows, but the Paper Airplane Requests have me wanting to look for stuff we've never heard performed.

Thanks for any help.

Tour Board / Re: Thoughts on AMAA/VIP/Soundcheck stuff

Just back from my Luckiest VIP.

Had a blast - but a bit pricey of course - worth it at a GA venue... and I got to hear Protection, Sports & Wine, Away When You Were Here, and Hospital Song..... of course we had Not the Same and Kate as well, but some real great requests from my co-attendees.

We're pretty active on Twitter these days. Unfortunately the world of Message Boards has gone the way of the DoDo.

I hope so. I remember an interview in 2012/13 where BF5 said they were gonna make another record and that didn't happen.

News / Ben planning to hit the studio in 2018

In a great article talking about Ben's career and becoming an advisor to the National Symphony Orchestra, they mention that Ben plans to go into the studio next year after he finishes touring to start working on new music.  An album in 2018 or 2019, perhaps?

Despite his busy schedule, Folds will be returning to his bread and butter soon. In addition to a 2018 tour through Australia, New Zealand and the U.K., Folds plans to return to the studio next year to start working on new music.
