Not putting it in the main setlist place because...well...he's not metal. ;)

taken from my last.fm:

One of the best concerts ever.

Me and my friends got there as the opening band, Black Violin was playing. They were awesome. It's 2 rappers and a DJ, but the rappers played classical violin to sick beats! Cool, very cool.

8/10

After that, I was unaware the Eef Barzelay was there. It was one guy with a guitar that sang off key and had his voice crack. It took me a while to figure out he wasn't a joke. Although some of his songs were promising, they were ultimately pretty bad.

5/10

Now, for the man himself. This was my third time seeing Ben Folds, and definitely the best. I knew all the words to his songs, and he even played new material! The new album will be killer. He also has a new drummer who went crazy and played extremely well. Same awesome bass player, too. Ben used a synthesizer a lot which just added awesome sounds.

Set:
New Song: "Dog"
Gone
Annie Waits
Landed
Rock This Bitch "Fuck Missouri" Edition*
New Song: Free Coffee
Still Fighting It
New Song: "God Laughing"
You To Thank
New Song: "Hiroshima"

Underground (!!!!!!!)
encore:
One Angry Dwarf And 200 Solemn Faces***

*Ben said that he was glad he was in Kansas (even though he was in Missouri) and he said the first place he felt comfortable playing live in was Lawrence. We cheered, many booed. This prompted Ben to make up on the spot a song how Missouri and Kansas should get along, but he inadvertently owned Missouri. Best lyric: "From Missouri to Kansas, From Kansas to Lawrence, From Lawrence to........your ass."

**Anyone who has heard Ben sing this song live knows the part where it's real quiet and he keeps repeating "Bitches Can't Hang With The Streets" so I yelled out during the silence "FUCK THE POLICE!" and it made Ben lol. :D

***It was some guy in the audience's 50th concert, so they decided to play an ultra fast and extended version of this song. So fucking awesome.

10/10
