Hey everyone!

This is my first post on the suburbs.  Last night I got to see Ben in Norfolk.  I've been a long-time site visitor and, since I always enjoy looking over this site's posted setlists instead of doing my schoolwork, I thought it would be a good idea to post last night's setlist so that other people could look it over instead of doing their work as well.  The list:

1.  Errant Dog
2.  Gone
3.  Landed
4.  Hiroshima
5.  Free Coffee
6.  Losing Lisa
7.  You to Thank
8.  Annie Waits
9.  Brick
10.  Lullabye - Solo
11.  One Down - Solo
12.  Fred Jones, Pt. 2 - Solo
13.  The Last Polka - Solo
14.  Still Fighting It - Band Returns
15.  Narcolepsy
16.  Army
17.  Bitches Ain't Shit
18.  Kate
19.  Rockin' the Suburbs
20.  Underground
21.  Zak and Sara
Encore:
22.  Effington
23.  Philosophy
24.  Not the Same

I have seen Ben three times before and I would have to say that this was the best Ben concert I've ever attended.  During the show, Ben told a story about how, before every BF5 performance, the band would put "Bruce Hornsby" down on the band guest-list as a joke.  So the last time they played in Norfolk, they were surprised when Bruce Hornsby actually showed up to their show (Hornsby lives in nearby Williamsburg).

A couple of other things I thought were interesting (but I suspect other people already know):  When Ben introduced "One Down" he said that the Andrew mentioned in the song was his brother-in-law from Australia.  Apparently when Ben was writing songs in Adelaide and got stuck on a rhyme, Andrew would start shouting out words for Ben to use.  Also, I didn't realize that Fred Jones, Pt. 2 was based on an actual story about a newspaper editor in Winston-Salem who was fired after 25 years at the paper.
