So Ben's doing Sydney and Melbourne but no dates further west at this stage...one can but live in hope.  Cos I certainly can't get to Syd or Mel.

Ben mentioned at the M&G in Fayetteville that he's doing a show in the fall with the Dallas Symphony. Some searching found that the show is on 9/30.

This sucks.  He's not going to be anywhere close to me that's possible to drive to.  By this time last year I had already seen him twice.  And had potential for one more.  I've seen him once this year with no possibilities on the horizon.

So, here's a thought.  If Ben is playing Sydney on Aug 31 (not the 29th as has been bandied about) then he is free to make a surprise guest appearance with Ben Lee and WASO on Aug 28 and 29 in Perth. 

That. Would. Be. Fantastic.  Alsoveryunlikely...

No way! Folds and Lee are gonna play in Sydney!
FUN FACT: My dads cousin (Bill) played french horn in the WASO with Ben. And he's on the dvd! lucky bastard...

I'm not greedy...I'll happily send Lee over once he and Folds are done over here.

ADDITIONAL FUN FACT:  I know a few of the WASO folk too.  And I'm on the DVD as well, in one of the crowd shots :-P
