Oddly Not So Bad

August 13, 2005

Went to go see the Odd Men Out Tour last night. That is Ben Lee, Ben Folds, and Rufus Wainwright. We were mostly going because friends of ours were and C's lil' bro is in town and we thought it would be fun to go to a show, but I came away pretty impressed. Ben Lee did his thing, and Rufus did his crooning, but I was especially impressed by Mr. Folds. He played to the white, teenage, suburban crowd well and his version of Dr. Dre's "Bitches Ain't Shit" was pretty funny. Rufus also joined him for a duet of George Michael's "Careless Whisper," which was even funnier seeing as us old folks knew all the words (scarily) and the teenage folk were scratching their collective heads. Anyway, the beer lines were very short and Ben Folds threw his piano bench/stool at the piano and a generally a good time was had by all...
