Bitter Ruin will support BF5 on their UK and Ireland tour.

They have also opened for Amanda Palmer in 2010 and 2011.

What's with Ben Folds/Five always booking females as the support act? Seems like a growing trend to me...

Female Acts or solo guys with just a guitar.

Jukebox the Ghost is like the anomaly to that in my career of shows. (Oh, and The Fray)

I remember years back, prob about 98/99, they had a band called Furslide as support - a woman lead singer backed by two guys. They made an album, which I still listen to to this day, but seemed to disappear of the face of the planet.

I know this will make me sound and look like a complete dong, but I just re-registered (after a couple of years of not using message boards) to say that I didn't really like this band at all.

The world needed to know.

EDIT: Just wanted to note that Ben himself forget their name and called them "Bitter End". Me and my friend actually high fived one another at this point.

You're back!!!!!  I thought I could smell something!
And I trust your opinion on these matters.

I was desperately hoping that Hotel Lights or KMH would open for BFF here, especially when neither the venue nor the ticketing agency could tell me who was opening with 24 hours before the show. Alas, twas not to be.
