Ben in Northwest? What?
« on: February 27, 2009, 09:39:26 PM »
Don't know if it's really been confirmed yet, but I was looking at an events calendar for the Roseland Theatre in Portland, Or, and at the very bottom of the page it listed Ben for 5/15/09.

Oh god do I want this to be true. I haven't REALLY seen Ben and the boys since 2005 (also at the Roseland).
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.

Damn.  If that's true I am going to be ANNOYED to the max.  I'm flying cross-country to Portland... in April!  I will be there EXACTLY one month before that show! To the DAY!  Butts.

Of course, I'm really happy for you.  Ben never seems to make it to the northwest... and if you haven't seen him since '05 you're certainly due for another Ben concert. 

For your sake, I hope this listing is accurate! And for my sake, I hope it's off by a month! C'mon, Ben, come to Portland in APRIL 2009, not MAY!

A Ben show in the Northwest! You have my attention! Very cool. Have to keep a vigilant eye out for a possible fan-club presale. :)

A trip up to Seattle and then over to Spokane and perhaps Pullman wouldn't be too much effort for Ben and the boys to make after their Portland visit now would it!? Glad to hear you are able to make the Portland show.  :)

And then how hard would it be to go down south a little bit to California or Arizona or Nevada?

BEST DAY EVER!
FOX THEATER OAKLAND CALIFORNIA JUST ADDED TO THE TOUR!
Stoked.
Even though that's seven hours away, it'll be an amazing road trip. I'll even get to stop by San Fransisco!

I'm happy for you!  Much as I really freakin' wish he'd come to Portland in April, you deserve to see him.  What has it been, 5 years or something?! Too long.

Felicitations on your upcoming Ben show :)
