General Board / Sara Bareilles New Video - Ben Cameo!
« on: March 01, 2011, 03:16:53 PM »
Sara Bareilles released a new video featuring a boat load of famous people singing parts of the song.

Ben makes an appearance around 0:53, 1:26, 1:53, 3:03, 3:16, and 3:29 (the last three are from a live show)

Alot of people I recognize, some I don't.  Jason Mraz, Josh Grobin, Pharrel from The Neptunes, Adam Levine are a few.

Arcade Fire is releasing their new album in August and it will be titled "The Suburbs".

Maybe the site will get inadvertant traffic and more people will get into Ben.

is it just me or is there a trend where other countries get all the bonus tracks and stuff?

its not a trend, there's some strategy behind it i think.  i think in some countries, its cheaper to get the regular album imported from another country.  so they tack on bonus tracks to get people to shell out the extra money for the in-country version.

Amazing show.  Didn't write down a setlist, but from memory, here is what was played:

Way to Normal:
Dr. Yang (real and fake)
You Don't Know Me
Before Cologne
Free Coffee
The Bitch Went Nuts (fake)

Songs for Silverman:
Sentimental Guy

Rockin the Suburbs:
Annie Waits
Zak and Sara
Fred Jones Pt 2 (solo)
Losing Lisa
Not the Same
Rockin the Suburbs

The Unauthorized Biography of Reinhold Messner:

Whatever and Ever Amen:

Naked Baby Photos:
Eddie Walker (solo)

Self Titled:
Alice Childress
Boxing (solo)
Philosophy (and some Dr. Pyser thrown in on the end)

I'm not 100% sure on the accuracy, but I think I got it.  May have left one out or added a mistake in.  Opener was actually very good, but I didn't catch their name...anyone got it?  An acapella group then came on, from Columbia I think.  They were hard to hear, but they did Justin Timberlake's "Cry Me a River", another song I dont know the title, but recognized, and then "Still Fighting It".  The crowd definitely responded well to the "Still Fighting It", which was great.

Ben was awesome.  Someone threw a big bouquet of flowers at Ben early on, and he liked em alot.  He had them on the piano early for one song, but moved them to the center of the stage in front of a speaker with the help of a roadie.  He mentioned something about a science experiment to see the effects of sound on plants.  Later on someone threw a funny looking hat thing at him (like a court jester or something), and he tried it on, but took it off before he started the next song.  During the solo set, before he played Boxing, he talked about he played the song in England once, and would stop the song and restart at every loud noise from the audience.  He said that people in England think all things Americans say are serious, so as he played the song, the audience stayed quiet.  He said he even tried to leave long pauses to give people a chance to make noise, and they didn't.  And he said he refers to that as the time he f*cked england....or something along those lines.

Tour Board / File This Under Rumors......

Apparently Ben is looking to do another College tour this year, (don't know solo or with band) either Fall 2007 or Spring 2008 (maybe both?), and as a part of the tour, apparently the host school's a capella group may be involved somehow in the show.

i have seen mayer once before and he wasn't half bad for someone who doesn't know his music outside of the radio stuff.  i saw him on a co-headling tour with the counting crows.

ticketmaster has the show starting at 7pm.  and ive been reading that ben plays for almost an hour pretty much.  so im guessing he comes on around 730 or 745?
