Reviews/Comments


-A solid 20 song setlist. Ben really plowed through the set tonight, not a ton of banter. But he seemed in great spirits. all smiles.
-Lots of older songs have new twists and whatnot, and the new songs sound wonderful live. You realize how cool they are in person.
-Obviously wish he left out "Bitches Ain't Shit," but it the show was sponsored by a fraternity, and not to stereotype, but, it was that kind of crowd. Still fun to hear, regardless.
-"Lullabye" was beautiful, always a thril to hear live.
-Some dude came out at 2 or 3 points in the set to play tambourine. Unintroduced, very strange. It was during "Effington," "Landed," and I think "One Angry Dwarf."
-After "Annie Waits," people started shouting requests. He was clearly going to do "Rock This Bitch" when someone yelled "PLAY WHAT YOU WANT," to which Ben cracked up. He then proceded to sing RTB about how some people wanted him to rock this bitch, while other people told Ben to play what he wanted. And then he started singing about Berry College and their censorship requests. And so he started swearing a lot. Easily the longest "Rock This Bitch" I've ever heard, well into the 5+ minute range.
-Here's the crazy part. Throughout the whole night, I had seen little particles of dust fall from the ceiling at various points of Ben's set. Then, during the intense part of "Narcolepsy," a whole shitload of dust and whatnot fall from the ceiling. The crowd went NUTS, the band was totally oblivious to the ceiling potentially caving in, and it was so crazy. So f*cking crazy. I thought they were going to pull the plug due to safety concerns for the band. But they kept rolling. AWESOME jazz outro for "Narcolepsy," that song keeps getting better.
-Great to hear a 2 song encore. These tickets were $10, we certainly got our money's worth, and then some.


I left the venue during the closing seconds of the last tune and found his van. Nobody around, at all. But Ben still made a pretty quick line for the van. He then realized there was no crowd or anything and stopped for a minute & signed my ticket. I told him about the ceiling mishaps during "Narcolepsy," and he said "No shit!!!" and thought that was pretty cool. When I told Sam & Jared, they looked at each other and had the biggest grins ever. They literally almost brought the house down. Kind of nerving during the show for a while.

Eef was really in top form. He played an electric for all but one song. I was probably one of the only people that knew of him, so I requested "I Love The Unknown" from his Clem Snide days. He seemed to like that, and he played it for me. So after his set, I spent a good 5-10 minutes talking to people coming up to me asking who he was. Had to spell his name for everyone. Gotsta spread the good word about Eef!
