Cool.  So it looks like a symphony orchestra/college mini tour?  Any idea when more BFF dates will get announced?

That's an odd gap between the Pittsburgh show and everything else.  Looks like some BFF rehearsal time I'm guessing, or maybe there was an availability issue with the symphony and Ben really wanted to play there so he said 'screw it, just move it back,' and he can attend to other things in the meantime.

i'll be hitting up the show in New Orleans.  getting to see Ben in the same auditorium where i met the love of my life.  life is good.
also, do y'all think these shows are going to be solo?  i'd really like to see Ben with band, since Ashton's only seen solo Ben (except for lolla a few years back).
and i'm so high not even you and all your love could bring me down

So is the record still on track for a late Spring release?  This one tweet from Ben a week ago made me curious: 

"its more ambitious record than we knew. sounds possessed haha. Mix June"

Not mixing it 'til June (if I'm interpreting that correctly)?  Seems like a long way to wait if they're done with recording, which it seems like they are.

I thought he possibly mistyped and meant "Mid June" for a release.

Good catch.  The x and d are very close to each other.  That makes me feel better, haha

IF he even attempts to put out the five record on June 12th I will cry.
New Jukebox the Ghost comes out the 12th. And now The Avett Brothers have started saying "summer" and ASDJflkdjglkfjg;sdjkluj. My three favorite bands should not be allowed to release music so close together.

SUMMERFEST. I'm only so excited cause that music festival is here in Milwaukee. I also became a Ben Folds (Five) fan at Summerfest 2005. No date yet. But I expect to see many of you HERE!!

tickets BOUGHT'D. I'm ashamed to say that even though I'm from the Chicago area, I've never made it out to Summerfest. Are the shows usually closer to full-length or shorter like Lollapalooza?

They're a bit short, but not as short as lolla. they tend to run an hour and a half.

I'll be there. When do they typically announce dates/stages for bands?

If the first time I see Ben Folds Five live is on my birthday, I may just die.

The dates and times should be announced by the end of the month. I hope so. I need to take the day off of work!! Sometime between June 27 and July 8, just not on the 2nd - summerfest is closed that monday.

I just pray to god it's not the 5, because The Avett Brothers are playing Summerfest that night (according to their website) and July 8 Jukebox the Ghost is in Chicago
