Ok, Iíve been slacking in my age, hereís my review of the RIT show:
A. The Line - The line was split into three different ones for easier filtering into the venue. I kind of panicked over getting the golden spot right by Ben, especially since Iíd been camping out in front of the venue since noon and also a five hour car ride. Before the show and anyone else go in line I walked around and scooped out the venue and saw through the large windows of the field house Jared and Sam jamming. It was cool.
B. The openers - Sara Bareilles = beautiful. Voice, looks, and talent, she was a triple threat and she played piano (like my hero, Ben!) Her dummer/beat keeper guy was cool. He had one of those boxes that Lindz used on the Live on Myspace (you know the box you kind of drum on and stuff). I laughed my butt off because guys kept on throwing her notes asking her out and such. I am definitely a fan and got her EP off iTunes after that show. Black Violin was meh. They defiantly had talent. They played their violins pretty awesomely and the DJ had some cool beats, but I am not one for crap rap of random lyrics that donít even have a flow or rhyme.
C. BEN- The main show! Ben looked healthy and happy and we were ready to rock and this time, with an interpreter. The show was good, but nothing close to the experience I had at Deleware, Ohio (standing right up against the stage, and hearing BOTH One Down and The Secret Live of Morgan Davis). My favortie part about the show was Rock This Bitch and Bitches ainít shit, and that was mainly due to the interpretations. Also at this show I felt welcomed, because I noticed Sam noticed me in the audience and when Ben introduced him, he pointed one of the drum sticks at me and gave me a smile and the ďwhatís up manĒ head nod. I was kind of disappointed because I had high hopes that Ben had successfully taught Sam and Jared Jackson Cannery, or they played a new song. The only LARGE negative thing about the show were the fans. There were a BUNCH of dumb middle/high schoolers and drunk people around me, all of them acting VERY immature, so much so I donít even want to get into itÖit makes me wish there were age, maturity, IQ, and sobriety requirements to get into the shows.

D. After the show - As soon as Not the Same was over, I made my way, quick as possible out to the back of the field house, only to see Ben jump into a white van and drive off. I next saw Jared and Sam (who both remembered me from the last show I was at and talking to them on myspace) It was cool, we talked about the two week break they had between the shows and how they had two shows the next day. After chatting and a snapshot with each of them I was off on my 5 hour car ride back home (yay for falling asleep at the wheel)
