According to the .com, Ben will appear on PBS' Austin City Limits on Saturday, October 29th. Early notice, yes, but I'm looking forward to it!

so what happens on this show? is it like Sessions st west 54th where they play a little concert?
My new philosophy is that a crappy tape deck somewhere plays a greatest hits collection of strange and tender moments, lost, stranded, and forgotten. I'll meet you there.

basically.  it's a really stripped-down atmosphere.  Usually they pair an "on-the-rise" artist, usually of the indie leaning, with a more established artist.  Looks like Ben's performing with Ray LaMontagne, which promises a good show.

And six days after Ben's pal Weird Al's birthday!  ;D

I will definitely try and remember to watch this!

I have tried (to no avail) to find out if the show has already taped or when it is to be taped. The KLRU site (where it is taped) has nothing and there are no current tapings listed on the tape message when you call the ACL hotline.

Anyone know anything?
