Hey gang... I might be going to ComicCon instead of this show (my web series has been chosen to screen there) if I can raise the funds to do so (there's a kickstarter where folks can contribute if they like to help cover promotional and travel costs http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jpar/dead-wait-at-comiccon-2010) and if that's the case, I'll be selling my tickets. If you need 'em, send me a DM.

I'm in.  Is it just Ben, or is it Ben + Jared and Sam?  Seems like with the lineup that opens for him, it would be Ben + Jared and Sam for sure.

I'm fairly certain it's just Ben until the fall album tour.

This is correct - though Jared won't be touring with Ben and company, so there will be someone new playing bass (in yo' face).

Let's get Robert back with Ben  :P  He hasn't been up to much lately...

Why no Jared?  Is it temporary? Will Sam still be there?  I hate when Ben changes band members.  The shows tend to get more static and controlled.  Ben, Jared, and Sam had been really clicking well the last few tours.

Jared makes some funny faces..... but that's it. He's a great guy and all, but I think it'd be nice to have some more.... oh, I don't know.... Ben Folds Five type banter and whatnot between the guys on stage.

I miss that.

Now it's just Ben talking about stuff, then song playing. A little nod here to Sam. Ben talks about himself. More songs.  :-\

Should I go to this. I work about 15 mins away, but never been to a "festival" or multi-group deal. What are the pros (besides seeing Ben again) and the cons?

cons are that it's probably going to be him playing less time than he normally would for a show.  pros are seeing Devo, Silversun, Against Me, and some other band.

Cons: It's hot as #$%& in KC right now. The venue is outdoors and is usually full of drunk a-holes who don't care about the concert. The acoustics are kinda lame. You'll be standing on pavement for hours. Folds will probably play a slightly truncated set.

Pros: DEVO. FOLDS.

You clearly see that you have no choice but to attend.

Slightly truncated?  The damn 11:00 PM curfew w/ fine for City Market makes almost all headliners be abridged sets.  I heard it was $1,000 per minute past 11:00 PM.

I wish it was at The Crossroads.  No curfew, longer sets.
