Album Board / Doc Pomus!
« on: September 17, 2010, 05:34:09 PM »
So, I might be a little slow and this might have been posted before, but I was just browsing through a Ray Charles Transcription book of mine, and I noticed a song called "Lonely Avenue" by Doc Pomus that he was covering.

Thought I'd bring up this interesting tid bit in case anyone didn't know.

Tour Board / UD Set List
« on: April 19, 2010, 05:51:57 PM »
After reading about the STL show, this was a very similar crowd/concert. It seemed there were too many students not interested in the music who didn't know his stuff. Not to mention, I don't think the general feel ever works in a large stadium. There was no one else singing around me which was kind of funny, they probly heard me more than Ben. Still, it didn't seem to bother Ben to much, typical college concert. Here's the setlist, although i didn't write it down, so not in order, but 99% sure i got 'em all.

Annie Waits
Hiroshima
Effington
Mess
Gone
Rock This Bitch (Weirdest Rock this bitch i've heard. about the hospital down the street and his overweight waitress at Denny's. Which is why he went right into...)
All U Can Eat
Secret Life Of Morgan Davis (played this after because he said some audiences are more into music, others lyrics, and liked the response from the words in All u can eat)
Time
Landed
Fake Bitch Went Nutz
You Don't Know Me (w/ Kate and her guitarist - who were great!)
Kate
Steven's Last Night in Town (w/ Drum solo)
We're Still Fighting It
Army (crowd singing was horrible)
Picture Window
Narcolepsy (After the middle section he did some improv 12 bar blues - don't know if the lyrics were from a song or made up)
Bitches 'Aint Shit (by request from a lot of people yelling, had a girl come and sing the second verse)
Not The Same (4 part harmony, horrible audience singing again)

Encore:
Zak and Sara
One Angry Dwarf 200 Solemn Faces

Tour Board / Cleveland 4/15 Show
« on: April 15, 2010, 08:04:20 PM »
My 11th folds show and easily my favorite! (first time seeing him solo)

This isn't the correct order, but these were the songs.

Free Coffee
Annie Waits
All you Can Eat
Effington
Brainwasched
Levi Johnstons Blues
Picture Window
Landed
TIME
Steven's Last Night in Town (with awesome drum solo)
Hiro's song (all on his drum set)
Rock this Bitch on drums
Emaline
Sentimental Guy
Gone
Zak and Sara
MESS
Hiroshima
You Don't Know Me
Bitch Went Nutz
Morgan Davis (which I requested!)
Luckiest
Still Fighting It
Army
Not the same (4 part harmony)
One Angry Dwarf 200 Solemn Faces

Encore:
Rockin' The Suburbs
Song For the Dumped

This show was awesome. He was on fire (nothing new there) and played forever, taking a ton of requests. His drum solo on Steven's Last night was amazing. All I can say is his fingers must hurt like hell after tonight.

I noticed ben has a few solo dates coming up in the fall. is the fray going to open for him, or is it going to be similar to the rufus wainwright /ben folds tour going on right now, where it is a co-headliner?

Tour Board / Columbus Show
« on: August 11, 2005, 09:31:23 PM »
Tonight I saw Ben for the very first time, although i have been a huge fan of him for almost a year. i definently need to see him any chance i get. if i remember correctly here is his set list: Bastard, Gone, Zak and Sara, You to Thank, Jesusland, Landed, Trusted, Bitches aint shit, a song i didnt know that rufus sang along, another song i wasnt familiar with from naked baby photos, philosophy, not the same, and oad. it may be missing some, and out of order but if anyone was wondering thats the best i can remember. also, oad was amazing when he threw his stool at the piano at the end.  \m/
