Sounds like the perfect excuse for another road trip.  Are you sure you didn't do that by-mistake-on-purpose?

If great seats are worth an extra $30 to you, go to and join the fan club.  The presale started for Mobile yesterday.  I got front row center to the Durham, NC show through that presale and I think everyone else who has taken advantage of it were at or near the front.  Plus you might get a cool welcome package...or 1/2 of one...or none at all.  But that's a different story.

however i have never heard the other story he told that night about him and the five running over a bear.

He ran over a bear?!?! How is that possible? He must have been driving a monster truck :P. Not to call Ben a liar but I also think the story is made up.

his dad was in .38 special, ya know?

But only after, as a kid growing up in W-S, Ben watched a poodle freak out and die from the sound of his Dad's circular saw.  It was very traumatic and is why he kept the volume down in Cary last year... so he wouldn't kill any of the duckies or turtles.

Miniature Tigers were very well received in Durham.  I thought they were great and I'm now the proud owner of Tell It to the Volcano.

I think Fair has been on every set list so far.  That's one of my must-see songs as I've never seen Ben or the Five do it live.  Lets hope it stays in the mix for the Durham, NC show...please!

Just found out about this website this morning.  I'm glad I've found it because the BF message board that I've been on until now is the same 3 or 4 people yelling at each other about their grammar and who's a bigger fan.  It would be nice to share with a few like minded, intelligent folks.

A couple of cool Chapel Hill moments that Carly left out:

Ben talked about how Chapel Hill is "one of my hometowns".  He said he lived at 107 Isley Street from 1991 through 1998 and if anyone in the audience could prove that they live at 107 Isley...he'd give them a cookie.  Also, while Ben was talking, some drunk was trying to yell out something unintelligable from the balcony.  Ben started immitating him and that became the main verse to the improv jam and then the next verse was that everyone should go to 107 Isley and f*ck with the guy who lives there now.  Here's the setlist:

Dr. Peyser
All U Can Eat
Smile (Cooler than you)
Chapel Hill Jam
Still Fighting It
You to Thank
Losing Lisa
Bitches Aint Shit (Bitches can't hang in the streets of Carrboro, Pittsboro or Saxapahaw) :)

Fred Jones Pt. 2
The Last Polka

Such Great Heights
Zak and Sara
Not the Same

One Angry Dwarf

I look forward to chatting with y'all.  I plan to go to see Ben with John Mayer in July.  He's being billed as "Very Special Guest" so hopefully his set will be at least an hour.  I think a lot of Ben fans might opt out of that show because of John Mayer but we need to go to make sure we outnumber the screaming tweens who might disrespect Ben because they want John Mayer to come on.  I'm sure he'll rock and win them all over!
