ben folds, i may not have said this enough - you're my f*cking hero. shit. best back to back to backs i've ever done. SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO pleased with the set lists. though tonight was a bit short, but that matters not cause you played Video (beautifully i might add) and that hasn't been played in so so so so so so so so so long and it's always been one of my top folds songs that i was notably shaking this evening. wait til y'all hear me on my video. grabbed that, the drum solo and wandering.


shit christ. what a week.






now to go back to my real life. :(

Really great show. I was glad to finally see Philosophy, since it's one of my favorites and I hadn't seen him play it before... Didn't end up recording because I wasn't sure if the mic I had was very good and I didn't know if I'd be able to set it anywhere safe and I didn't want to hold it over my head the whole time... oh well.

Kate was absolutely amazing. I'd never heard of her before she started opening for Ben and hadn't listened to much of her since then... now I will. My friend went to buy her CD right after she was done, and she was hanging out in the hall; he talked to her about opera because he likes operas and obviously so does she... and then she signed his CD. So all that was cool.
Her setlist was:

Our Song
Politics in Space
Caught in the Crowd
Toxic (Britney Spears cover)
Are You f*cking Kidding Me
Words


In worse news, I left my wallet on the train home today. f*ck.

I've been steadily adding links to the smattering of videos from the three Chicago shows that have been popping up on Youtube. You can find them in the Concert Reviews section of the message board at http://www.ChicagoConcertgoers.com.

Did you get identified as the author of said tweet/s?
