Tour Board / Re: Toronto, CAN - July 11, 2013.
« on: July 11, 2013, 10:05:27 PM »
It was a bit anti-climatic for me, considering the few shows I've been too have had notable moments to them (Rock This Bitch In Canada I and II, A  Fake Army, the return of "Time" to the solo setlists...) and the only other stadium show that I've been too, I ended up meeting Ben in person for the first time anyway, so that kind of made up for the crappy seats.

Oh well. Hear's hoping 11 will be better!

Tour Board / Toronto, CAN - July 11, 2013.
« on: July 11, 2013, 09:44:07 PM »
What up, Burbanites?

Here's your setlist with some fresh commentary. Show number 10 for me! It took me 8 years but I've finally joined the double digits club.


1. Michael Praytor - In which Ben began to sing the second verse first. Then he broke a string. Good work, Foldsington!
2. One Angry Dwarf.
3. Missing The War - In which I began to realize that this was indeed a crowd that was disappointed to find out that Ben Folds Five only has three members, if you catch my drift.
4. Erase Me - What the f*ck is this? Y'all crazy! Turning 'round and leaving the show dismays me...
5. Sky High
6. Brick - "OH! OH! Now I remember who this Ben Folds guy is! This was the song for my wedding's first dance back in '98!" Yeah.... Yeah. 
7. Narcolepsy - Sublime, as is the tradition.
8. Draw A Crowd - In which, Robert made a valiant effort to involve the crowd somewhat, much to the dismay of the gentleman who was trying to sell Hagan Daas Ice Cream Bars to the audience.
9. Landed.
10. Underground - In which I pointed out to my friend that both Ben Folds and I were indeed "decked in all black, slamming the pit fantastic."
11. Song For The Dumped.
12. Stool Smash. Repeatedly. As if Ben was venting his anger at this AWFUL crowd. It was enough for me to include it as a song.

No cameo of Folds in the BNL set. Aww. :(

Resolution: Never attend a Ben Folds (Five) show that doesn't feature them as the headliner ever again.

Got my Toronto Tix! A little further back, but Front Row is all gone and I wasn't going to pay 100+ bucks for non-front row. Haha.

If any of you American types want to come to this one, I have a very comfy couch waiting for you. :D

Yeah we are. Apparently, it's more interesting than talking about Ben's new Ladyfriend.

The one time I met Ben in a parking lot somewhere back in 2009, I actually asked him how tall he was.

"I'm about 5'11."

There.

I meet my f*cking hero and all I can do is ask him how tall he is. Well, I asked him other things, too, but I asked him that for some reason.

Greetings all! Quilty here reporting from the Canadian Front.

Michael Praytor
Missing The War
Hold That Thought
Jackson Cannery
Robert Sledge Rocked This Bitch - An excellent bass solo by Mr. Robert Sledge if I do say so myself.
Selfless Cold and Composed
Erase Me
Alice Childress
Sky High
Landed
Thank You For Breaking My Heart
Battle Of Who Could Care Less
UNCLE WALTER! Fantastic. My first time seeing this live.
Brick - Do people always hoot and holler during Brick? It seems inappropriate.
Do It Anyway
TOM AND MARY! They didn't miss a beat here! Someone in the crowd requested it.
Narcolepsy - Which sounds BETTER THAN EVER. It was Indy good.
Kate
Song for the Dumped -  In which Ben conducted the audience for this one for a change. Mutual bird flippings occurred.

ENCORE

"Roses She Gave Me" Rock This Bitch. SOMEONE (*coughcoughmecough*) threw roses up onto the stage before the encore.  The band improvised a song about it. I hope someone caught it on video! (EDIT: Someone did! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zbEfjxVCvh0&feature=plcp)
Underground
Army

The boys unfortunately did not stay after this gig like they have this past tour. I wasn't planning on staying, but to thank the band for the song would have been nice. Oh well. Solid performances from all three of them considering it was the end of the North American tour. Have fun, Aussies and Brits! You will not be disappointed.

EDIT: Forgot to mention during the show, Ben whipped out his iPhone and filmed the audience singing Happy Belated Birthday to a lady named Jessica. Ben complimented the audiences tone.

SAY YES!? I didn't even KNOW he did Elliot Smith covers. Where has he played that before?

Time AND Fired AND SELFLESS COLD AND COMPOSED?

But yeah, guys. I don't know. Like I said before: Peeps who went to the pre-NYC gigs... I'm really sorry.

Thanks for the video of Time, Boz! Saw it when he first played it in NYC last week, and was really hoping someone would get a performance of it on YouTube. It's my favourite song of his, too.

I like it when people call me Miss Quilty. :D

But, I don't know man! It's like something CHANGED him. Friday's gig in Montclair was great and all, but Monday he was just on a different wavelength. Like some kind of wicked inspiration exploded in his head.

Aw man! I really wanted to go to the second NYC gig, but JUST couldn't find my way in. Totally sold out.

DON'T CHANGE YOUR PLANS! GIVE JUDY MY NOTICE! Killer.
